  • Sorry you are not authorized to view this page - error when saving an edit to a post

    I get this occasionally on my vb5 forums and here too on this

    I edit a post and then after I go to save it the error "Sorry you are not authorized to view this page"


    Here at this vbulletin forum this tends to happen after repeated edit/save attempts in a row, of multiple revisions. At my own forums it happens just occasionally, no rime or reason to when, might happen on the first edit or on the fifth, or sometimes every time.

    What is strange is that the edit IS made, but there is no way to save it because this error message intervenes. So I just refresh the browser page without clicking to save, and the post now appears on the refreshed page, WITH the edit made.

    P.S. I brought this up before
    never got a clear answer.

    Okay see, it just happened here, on my second revision / edit to the above post!

    and no matter how many times I tried to save would not let me, but when I just gave up and clicked to reload the browser page, the edit had in fact been saved anyway.

    I don't think it is a login issue, I remain logged in.

    AND while I got the error on the 2nd attempt to edit/save the post, I did not get it on the third, fourth and fifth edit/save attempts, which those went through fine.

    Could it have something to do with the CONTENT of the page being edited/saved? that there is a URL in it, or Imgur image posted within the post via its URL?

      There is nothing wrong with the post content. Could be a "flooding" issue. I've never experienced it here but I believe flood detection is turned off for Admins here.

      Will see if I can reproduce it.

        Yes but I am seeing this issue on almost every post on my vb5 forums for regular registered members. I am not testing it on every vb5 forum of mine, but I am noticing it consistently on one of them.
