XF 1.4 The word "poker" breaks our forum...

    This is so strange. If anyone, including admins, try to post a message containing the word "poker", an error is generated:

    I've gone thru EVERY page in the admin panel a dozen times over and can't find anything that would cause this. We don't have any word restrictions/censoring enabled.

    It's driving me nuts!

    Any ideas?

    Sounds like a host issue, mainly mod_security.

    Thanks for the reply, Steve. Do you have any suggestions on where I should look for this? We're on a cpanel-based server.

    I would contact your host to whitelist it if that is the case.

    Are you getting any Server Error Log messages?

    Not a single one. :(

    Hello @ScottAllyn, I had a very similar issue. It was caused by an incorrect mod_security firewall rule. You will need to contact your web host to get this fixed unless you have root access to the server.
