I have been recently assigned to take care of a website that uses joomla. First things I'm trying to do are "smaller", like posting or editing articles.
I've received a super user account, but even so, when I try to edit an article, I receive a "Forbidden access" message ("You don't have permission to access /administrator/index.php on this server."). After that, when I go back to the content administration page, the article is shown as blocked. I then unblock it, re-open, and the whole process occurs again, unchanged. This is happening a lot. So far, I have only tried with articles which contained images.
What I do know: the server isn't run by us, so I thought that there might be something related to access permissions to the folders, directly? If so, I must still understand what's going on, so I can ask for the right permissions.
To sum up the question(s): - are there any automatic mechanisms by which joomla can block articles? - if so, can I disable them? - could this be due to access permissions for the server folders, even though I'm a super user?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Still facing this issue, seems to be related only to articles that have images associated. Using our ftp I've managed to check that the images within the articles that I'm not able to edit have different file permissions (644 instead of 664) than the others listed. This doesn't seem to affect much the forbidden access issue. Thought the problem could be somehow related to image alignment, too, but no...
