URL causing post to not render (empty)
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:35:26 AM »
For some reason posting certain URLs causes posts on my forum to end up blank. The page loads, but the content in the post is empty. Even previewing the link before posting causes this.

Here is an example URL (which seems to work fine on this forum?)

http://business.financialpost.com/transportation/fossil-fuel-vehicles-will-vanish-in-8-years-in-twin-death-spiral-for-big-oil-and-big-autos-says-study-that-shocking-the-industry [nofollow]

Posting this, or even previewing it causes the post to wind up blank. It doesnt seem to leave any errors for me to diagnose. Any suggestions? I've tried disabling some mods (YouTube Embed) but that didn't seem to resolve it.

ask your host if they are using mod_security, if so ask them to disable it.
