Hey,

I'm trying to create a small intranet for our company.

unfortunately I'm unable to post a link to the site as it has sensitive information on it.

I've ran in to this error Forbidden numerous times, and I've done some trouble shooting to see if I can figure it out with no luck.

Trouble shooting done so far:

I'm pretty sure it's not our host as they host two other wordpress sites for us.

Disable all "non" Pagelines plugins

Updated to the newest Pagelines framework

Updated to the newest Wordpress

I have run into this problem when:

Saving Page Options

Adding more than 6 box sets to a page (3 to 8 boxes per set)

and most recently adding numerous sub pages to a parent page( I can add 6 sub pages to a parent page before I get the forbidden error)

Can someone please shed some light on why I'm getting this forbidden error?

Thanks

Mustard

Is the network http server apache and is it running mod_security module?

Hey Simon,

That's getting a little too technical for me, is this something I would have set up as an admin?

Hi,

You need to ask your web host provider for this information.

Do you know what settings you will need changed in mod_security ?

When you get the error, is it a wordpress error? Is there an error code? 404 not found, 500 error? 403 denied? etc?

Hey, Simon_P

Forbidden

You do not have permission to access this document.

Web Server at ourwebsite.com.au

That's what I get when trying to save out the above mentioned problems.

Ask your host if they use mod_security

I have no idea, but google 403 forbidden is the only result i can find. We have never used mod_security. You should really talk to your host.

Is there anything else other than mod_security that can cause a problem like this?

This isn't the only WP site we have with this host and the other sites don't seem to have this problem.

Hi,

I have searched the internet and every-time this error has been reported and resolved, it was related to either plugin(s) or a server configuration issue.

Best thing to do would be to try the following, which was stated on one of the Wordpress forum replies:

  • Disable all plugins and see if this resolves the issue, if it does enable the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).
  • Switch your theme to Twenty Eleven and see if the issue persists, if it does, then it is not related to PageLines. If switching theme resolves your issue, please reply here informing us.
  • Resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
  • Re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

Hey Danny,

Unfortunately I've tried all these solutions except switching to the Twenty Eleven theme.

The reason I haven't switched themes is:

1. I'm worried that I'll lose all the customising I've done to the site via Pagelines less/css, menus etc. ( will this be effected if I switch themes and switch back?)

2. The error only happens on certain pages in the site, these pages only have Pagelines boxes and mastheads.

3. The other effected area is the Page Options Setup in the Pagelines framework I get the error when trying to change any settings in this area.

HI,

OK, well we haven't had this issue reported before, as far as I'm aware. So it must be related to your server configuration, I recommend you contact your host and ask them for assistance, like Simon suggested a few posts above.

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site

      I've been fighting with a resolution issue ? Want to use Flick Slider, the site looks great on my monitor but client says she can't see bottom of homes. I believe she's on an old PC using outdated browser/s ... but, she's important to me and I'd like to make this work, on her system. Without asking her adjust her own set-up. 
      I put the Flick Slider inside a container, here ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-five
      Set the Height of Flick Slider to 50 Base ... I don't know how this works exactly ... there is a Base then a Min ... but, haven't adjusted the Min ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-four/
      Tried using Splash Up, which presents the same issue (she can only see top of home) and she wants several images to rotate on Home page, so not sure this would work anyway ::
      http://becauze.xyz/
      I have tried going into Layout and making the width narrower, and that does make the site narrower, but the homes still don't display in full, on her system. Help ?

      Here are her screen grabs, both desktop and iPad  (dumped the chalkboard background).

      FInally, she said these look great ::
      http://www.sinclairaia.com/
      http://www.kristihanson.com/
      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?

      On my site www.modishmel.com I'm seeing the "blog post title" within the "pins" plugin section breaking words into multiple lines. See screenshot attached.
      Only seeing it in Firefox. Can you help?

      I updated my theme to framework and now can't get rid of this bright blue bar that appears across the top of every page. It says, "A fixed bar that makes it easy to promote important content.", and then a button that says, "Get PageLines".
      I am a novice and need help.
      Thank you!
