Hi all,

Site information:
URL: http://forumauthority.com/
Version: 1.8.7


Having a slight problem with my forum. We are trying to implement a thread with HTML code using the HTML in posts plugin. However when the thread is submitted, it gives the user the error of: "403: forbidden" (see image below).
This error is also apparently occurring for some of my users on standard, non-html threads. (though I have not been able to verify this one through self-replication).

The error occurs (at least, the one that I replicated) upon posting a HTML code for paypal buttons within the thread.
This is the exact error that I am getting:
http://i67.tinypic.com/110dlya.png

I have tried the following:
  1. Disabled all plugins (error remained)
  2. Tried without HTML (error occured still, but intermittently.)
  3. Ensured that the .htaccess contains:
    <IfModule mod_security.c>  
    # Turn off mod_security filtering.   SecFilterEngine Off    # The below probably isn't needed, but better safe than sorry.    SecFilterScanPOST Off</IfModule>
However, as you can probably imagine, the error still occurs. I contacted my host but he was stumped by the issue, as am I. So I have come here in the hope that one of you could help me. Most likely I am overlooking something simple.

I'd be very grateful for any and all help that I can get, as I am rather stumped as to what is causing this. The site does run through cloudflare as a CDN and cache, but I also disabled this to ensure that it wasnt caching an issue, but it still occured (though cloudflare is now back on).

Many thanks in advance,
Katos.

Test accounts can be created if needed (forgot to mention that, sorry!)
