  Transient 403 Error for Users
Posted by: thomasgreen - Today 06:13 PM - No Replies

Detailed description of your problem, including steps to reproduce if necessary:
Some members on my forum are encountering a 403 error when they post a thread or edit a thread, but it doesn't happen all the time. I have never encountered it using my own account or one of my test accounts. All the permissions seem to be in order. It's not like it happens everytime or to ever member. It happens only to a few members maybe like 8 out of 100 members have encountered it. And once they encounter it, it stays there for a while, but after a while, it sometimes goes away.

URL to your forum/URL to specific problematic page

New installation or upgrade (from which version of MyBB)?
It is a new installation, but I have switched servers and I believe I did it correctly.

Test user account (if it requires additional permissions)
Will provide upon request, but I doubt it'll help since MOST members are able to do everything just fine.

Screenshot or error text, verbatim
I haven't encountered it before, but members are saying it looks like this:
Error 403
Forbidden You don't have permission to access /newthread.php on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I have removed my custom 403 error page to see if that helped, but it didn't. Not quite sure what could possibly be wrong. All permissions seem fine "All of the required files and directories have the proper CHMOD settings." I migrated my dns from cloudflare directly to the server (been done a week ago) and that didn't help. Still always have one or two members report that they are getting a 403 error. My .htaccess file is just the default one that includes a redirects to my custom error pages. ): Help?

  Word Filter not working on latest thread sidebar
Posted by: Puzzlemaster - Today 01:31 PM - Replies (2)

I have used this edit in index.php file to show latest thread sidebar
Now i have one issue, i created an adult filter so whenever anyone uses bad word they will be replaced with another word.
The filter works very fine on thread and title but i saw that the the replacement word is not visible on sidebar thread name and i see abusive word there.
Is there any fix or tweak so that mybb word filter will replace it on sidebar as well

  What Can I Do With The Portal ?
Posted by: Solidify - Today 02:25 AM - Replies (3)

Hi. Total noob here. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around some of the basic concepts behind building a forum and I have a couple of questions I was hoping someone could answer for me.

First, I was wondering what I could do with the portal feature.

Can I use this feature to create a home page or landing page for my forum that displays automatically updated content from my hot topics and recent posts, etc.?

Is that how that works? And if so, could someone please tell me how?

Second, is there a way for users to embed images in a post without using a url, besides uploading the image as an attachment... or is that something I'm just going to have to live with?

Thanks in advance.

Slim pickins on the help around here huh? I guess when I'm done figuring this stuff out I'll lend you guys a hand.

I set my forum options that each registration has to be verified by admin, the problem is that if someone register he can still see all forums etc, and i want fresh registered user to only see login field, not boards.
