Can't edit my first post in thread / Error when posting links

Works absolutely fine for me. Out of curiosity, I clicked on the first post in one of my ported Opera topics and didn't get "403".

I do wonder if there is something in content that is able(allowed) to be posted when the thread is created but changed(disallowed) later

I can take a wild guess, perhaps it's that forum which name starts with "ecl" included in your topic? It's been known for open hostility towards MSFN, some certain well known members especially, win32 for example, whom they even dared to ban. Not to mention, "ecl" hosts rather dubious content, like edited ISO images, forbidden here at MSFN, but it's just my guess. Another reason, maybe it's your IP they don't like? Forums are usually connected to a "bad IP" database. Not saying yours is bad, probably a mistake?

when I tried to edit content of my first post (i.e. https://msfn.org/board/topic/185966-my-browser-builds-part-5/?do=edit ) it returns "HTTP 403" after I clicked "Edit Topic"

Recently @XPerceniolreported the same Forbidden issue in the below topic, several times he couldn't post with (copyright protected?) links.

That said, all the links I want to attach or post, I have no troubles with doing so. I post from an unnamed Chromium browser based on v.119. (not Supermium)

I've just tried. I have zero troubles clicking on "Edit Topic" in my intro posts/topics. It allows me without any problems.

it seems that eclipse is not the case. even if I remove that link I still get HTTP 403.

Well, since we don't have that problem, I'm starting to lean towards external (questionable?) third party content ban. As the last resort, can you try to login from another location, maybe? 

As an example, see, they can't add youtube URL to their post.

so other users getting same problem:

https://msfn.org/board/topic/185966-my-browser-builds-part-5/?do=findComment&comment=1259648

so posting embedding links with a preview box causes HTTP 403.

Confirmed! The MSFN forum editor hasn't been working properly for months especially when it comes to inserting of certain links. Here is my report: https://msfn.org/board/topic/186048-msfn-forum-editor-inserting-of-certain-links-impossible/

I'm having the same issue as well. Browser - latest Opera.

  • Tripredacus changed the title to Can't edit my first post in thread / Error when posting links

Changed title. The issue has to do with links and the link preview function. Other users get similar error just posting and not editing. Other portions of how the post editor renders content also effected.

Is there any progress in fixing the broken MSFN post editor? :dubbio: For months, editing/updating of old posts is definitely a game of chance and in certain cases rather a torture.  :angry: At this point, I should mention that I have a lot of posts which have to be updated on a regular base. Thus, I am particularly affected. suisjebete.gif
