404 Error back again?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to post a picture in the What Did You Get Today section but I keep getting the 404 message.

It never actually went away. We are hoping that the software upgrade fixes it. Dave just has to free up the time to try it again, it didn't take on the first try.

As weird as it sounds, it might be combination of words or letters in the text of your post.  At least that is what I found out when I had this problem.

That's interesting. Hard to imagine but interesting. 

I'll try a test.

Thanks for the reply.

Weird!

I could have sworn that in my last reply I posted a link to my other post which proves that certain word combinations cause the 404 error, but the link is not there!

Anyway, if you want to learn more about the weird 404 error behavior, read the post linked to below and several following posts.

I've been trying to post a single photo copied from this site with NO TEXT for two days, on the General thread "what makes you say cool" or whatever.

I hadn’t been plagued with this in the past but had two posts with photos give me this error this morning.

i recently saw another phenomena. I was always able to copy a photo from Fotki and paste it into a post.  When I do that now I see the photo like normal but others said my post had no photos, just odd code where they should’ve been.   

Then when investigating I opened my post and saw those photos were in my post but not in the photo upload tray below.  So now I copy Fotki photos to my Irfanview in my laptop and then copy them to the post. That seems to fix it.

I’m working on a Windows 10 laptop with Chrome browser

We finally fixed an underlying server problem last night. It might change the behavior.

If you encounter a problem, please record the date, time, and your timezone and send them to me.

The problem I'm having with the 404 Error thing is when I try to send a message to someone. I've tried two different members, only to have the '404 Error' pop up.

Even I can't post any pictures to my thread.  Can somebody fix the glitch in this system, please!

I just now had a 404 error replying to a post in the Lounge. I went back and tried it again, this time deleting my normal winky smileycon, and it posted just fine. 

Yesterday or the day before, had the same thing happen--a message refused to post several times until I deleted the smiley, and then no problem at all.

In my quest to fix the original 404 problem, I had our hosting company fix a problem with the server software. That brought a bunch of security rules online, and we keep tripping over some of them. I've fixed what I think are the most troublesome ones. Please either post here or send me a PM if you encounter the problem again. 

Thanks,
Dave

Interesting.  I started having the 404 error while trying to post last night, and even got locked out of the website for few hours couple of times.  That was when all I was posting was the word "test".  This whole computer world is getting way too complicated. Bring back the old-school BBSs!  Text only baby - no viruses or malicious code.

 

EDIT: this is the text which I thought caused the 404 errors:

Then there is "stellar".  There is also "stellar".

2nd EDIT:

Um, it works tonight - so whatever was being done last night was causing my problem - not the above sentences. Good!

10:17 AM, EST. Thread about "tubing notching".

Photo from this site, uploaded by me from my own files on another thread, failed to copy, hung indefinitely, could not cancel the photo copy, and could not complete the post. Though the photo was uploaded as a jpg, the box indicated the "hung" copy was a png (and I have no idea if that's significant).

The most recent fixed cured the 404 error I was getting, too, when trying to create a new post on the Car Reviews section.

Yea!  That works!  Thanks Dave!  The post I couldn't get the pictures posted on last night works today also!  Same post that was saved by the site.

Just a test, tried multiple times yesterday with no luck.  Edit, seems to work good again. Thanks Dave!
