Having trouble posting In Prevention and Treatment

Postby TheBrain » Sun Jul 07, 2019 6:34 am

Since yesterday, I’ve tried multiple times to post in the recent thread titled “Sleep.” I keep getting this error message:

403
Forbidden

Access to this resource on the server is denied!

I’ve logged out and logged back in. Didn’t help. I quit and restarted my Safari browser. Didn’t help. I’ve tried posting on both my iPad and iMac.

Any ideas?

I've had odd things like that happen to me before. Did you contact technical support: tech-team@apoe4.info

The short answer is to rephrase any failing post to eliminate all left parentheses. Most of us can stop reading this post right here. :-)

The phpBB3 software that we use has a bug that causes posts containing certain sequences of the form "keyword(x" where keyword is any of a number of special words, and x is any non-space character. So for example, a prospective post containing any of these sequences will fail:

keyword(X
k ey word ( y
keywor d ()
keyword(-
try to keyword (happens occasionally)

You can reproduce this by attempting to post something containing a sequence like one of those above where you replace keyword with sleep, which is one of the special words.

Thanks, Marc. I had a whopping six left parentheses in my text! None of them appeared to fit any of the patterns you listed, unless that last one is a catch-all for any usage of the left parenthesis. But I went ahead and took out all of them and just succeeded in posting my text. I’ll be sure to remember this tip.
