I have a site I'm troubleshooting at the moment where articles won't save via the front end and return a 403 error when you either Save or Cancel editing.
After whittling down potential causes, this morning I've gone and cut and pasted code in the article until it broke... which happened when it got to
<!-- container-fluid --> HTML comment. This is automatically inserted by JCE to indicate the end of a container, and HTML comments should usually be inoccuous.
Removing the HTML comments resolves the issue temporarily, but then when I go to edit the page again, when it switches on in Editor view, the HTML comments are added in automatically again, and the 403 returns.
Looking for thoughts on:
- Disabling the insertion of the html comments
- Adjusting the setting in Joomla that is causing 403 protection
Site has Joomla 4.2.3, latest JCE, Admintools, SP Page Builder and more.
