  1. After receiving another report, I was finally able to gather enough information, replicate the issue, and find the source of the problem .... the one I was able to catch. Our servers employ several layers of security and one of the many layers was interpreting the 'embed video' as a cross-site scripting (XSS) attempt and returned the 403 error. It took a bit of digging, but I was able to locate the event in the log. I believe I have neutralized that particular rule (leaving the other 1,000+ in-place) and my testing indicates that the 'problem' is gone. Thanks for your patience. -john
  2. I am also considering the Texas Triangle trip this year - given that I'll be a new resident of Texas by then. Still in the planning stage.
  3. I've updated the forum software to the most current version, as well as an overdue update of the PHP engine. Let's hope that between the two of them, this intermittent but nagging problem is resolved. Sorry for the delay - life gets in the way at times.
  4. This is another very nice tribute to Sam Pilafian, from the NY Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/12/obituaries/sam-pilafian-dead.html
  5. He was a mentor and inspiration to so many. May he Rest In Peace. Tribute from The Blue Devils
  6. My apologies Greg - I just saw this. I'm afraid it is too late to diagnose this specific issue. The 403 error often indicates a security issue that the server has identified - however, we err on the side of caution and those 'errors' are sometimes false-positive. I'd need to see it pretty quickly, so I could examine the logs closely and go from there. Let me know if you encounter it again, please. -john
  7. I'll have to go back thru the thread and see what it was you said, Gadget, that caused the firewall to say "uhhhhh-uuuuuuuh".
  8. and yet - I can copy n paste a large block of text, add both <ul> and <ol> lists/elements and not have a problem. WHISKEY-TANGO-FOXTROT, over. Even more disturbing - no record of an error in the error_log.

  10. The update is done - just finished. We'll have to see if we can reproduce the problem now. -john
  11. I'm going to run a utility to update the database to use four-byte UTF-8 encoding, rather than the single-byte UTF-8 that we've been using. Unfortunately, our database is so large (one of Invision's largest, from what I'm told) that it is going to take quite some time - so I'll have to find some time to run it. Invision is recommending 4-byte UTF-8 now to permit some of the extended characters, so I should probably get this step out of the way before proceeding with any sort of bug report. ("Did you update to 4-byte UTF-8?") More here once I get this done. -john
