For some reason I get an error if I try to update my profile:-
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /profile.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/1.3.39 Server at http://www.atari-forum.com Port 80

Did you use the word L-Y-N-X somewhere?

Is that not allowed then? If you look above you may notice its actually in my current signature but I need to update my website address among other things. Is "lynx" really not allowed?

OK so I removed the highly offensive word and now I can indeed update my profile. Thats really daft :?

Thanks for the info Dal

Yeah it is a bit strange. I don't think it's a disallowed word but seems to cause a problem with one of the parsers on the forum for some weird reason.

Ly-nx without the minus sign is a keyword in php used to interact with files on the server. I guess the security mod on the forum sees it as a potential security risk.
