"Unknown" 403 error when replying to a just-closed topic

(Michael Downey) #1

I was in the act of writing a reply to this topic:

when @codinghorror closed/locked the topic. Since I couldn’t see this, I didn’t know it’d been closed, but when I tried to click the blue Reply button, I got the following “Unknown error saving post, try again. Error: 403 Forbidden” message:

I suppose this could really be more useful, because I tried clicking “Reply” a few more times until I scrolled down to see the “locked” message.

Replies via email to closed topics still post replys to the topic

Yes our error here is crap and has been for a long time. But this is also a duplicate, there is an existing topic for this bug.

Also @techapj if you want to take improving this message, that would be great.
