  • Resolved luudnoma


    Brand new WP user. Installed WP 2.7x via my webhost’s ( control panel and upgraded to WP 2.8.

    When creating a post whenever I try to format the text with in either Visual or HTML mode and press preview or update it sends me to the index page of my domain and the formatting changes are not accepted. I have tried deactivating visual mode, changing themes, deactivating all plugins, but nothing seems to work.

    Please help…

    Have you tried:

    – disabling Google Gears if you have that running/installed.

    renaming the plugins folder via FTP

    – reading

    I disabled gears and deactivated all plugins. I disabled the visual editor too. The issue still persists…whenever I try anything other than simple text, it will not accept the formatting and the preview sends me to the root index page of my domain. Very unusual and extremely frustrating. Any other suggestions?

    Did you try renaming the plugins folder via FTP? Occasionally an apparently “inactive” plugin can still cause problems.

    Thanks so much for your help. It is still not working. tried several times to rename the plugins folder. It does not solve my problem. I actually deleted the entire installation and started again from scratch and still the same issue. I just want to have the capability to format my posts…Could it possibly be an issue my web host?

    Fixed. I called my web host and they changed the mod_security settings. Works great now. Thanks for your help.
