Unable to edit Terms of Service 403 Forbidden


(Tim Williams) #1

I can edit the FAQ, change Admin Settings and the Customisations - but if I try and edit the Terms of Service I get an error on “403 Forbidden” in a modal dialog, on submission. The only option is to click OK, and then it goes back to the editor.

The errors in the console are all to a /posts API I presume:

Interestingly… I can get it to post successfully, but only if I delete most of the content so it’s just a single paragraph. If I try and create something as long as the original, it won’t submit.

Can we repro this @techapj?

This seems like an error on CloudFlare. I think the issue is with the PUT http command.

This is what I see when I try

Which is not a Discourse error message. The request doesn’t even hit your server.

When I try using your discoursehosting.net URL instead of your own hostname, I can change the FAQ etcetera without any issues.

Stop routing your site through Cloudflare to prevent this problem.

Thanks @codinghorror @michaeld we’ll try and change the CloudFlare config so we don’t block these requests.
