XF 1.3 403 Forbidden overlays

    I'm almost certain this is a server issue, but not sure where to start as I'm on shared hosting with VentraIP..

    When I was typing a post, this overlay popped up when it tried to save the draft:
    save-draft-403.jpg

    Then all my CSS went weird, as if it became stripped. The colours all turned white and background turned teal.

    I refreshed the page and retyped my post and all seemed well.

    But then when I was creating some new link forums in the Admin CP, the moment I clicked out of the Link URL field after entering the URL I wanted to redirect to, a similar pop-up appeared:
    validate-link-forum-403.jpg

    Again the CSS went weird again, half the text turned white. Ignoring it and clicking "Save Link Forum" worked fine. But it seems each time I click outside that site URL the same pop-up appears.

    Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? :(

    That could be a mod security issue.

    Contact your host and ask them to check and adjust the rules as necessary.

    Thanks Brogan, all fixed after host disabled mod_security.

    Maybe placebo effect but page loads seem a little quicker now. :)
