I cannot post PHP on CoDidact software development

+2
−0

I cannot paste some HTML-CSS-PHP code which I have tried and would like to ask a question about in CoDidact Software Development.

When I publish my question I just get redirected, time and again to a webpage saying "You have been blocked" (it's good my question heading and body weren't deleted and was still cached but the tags aren't cached).

I think this has to do with some limitation on pasting PHP so the server won't process it in case it's malicious.

How should I cope with that problem?

Thanks !

Update

As the block page is created by CloudFlare, I believe this problem is CloudFlare based.

Could you share the code you're trying to post via some other means (like in a gist or something) so we can use it to test? Thanks! Monica Cellio‭ about 1 month ago

I have gladly shared it here: https://wtools.io/paste-code/b4gG JohnDoea‭ about 1 month ago

Can you post a screenshot of that "You have been blocked" page? ArtOfCode‭ about 1 month ago

So this is Cloudflare that's blocking you, not any part of Codidact software. I've found the requests, and it looks like Cloudflare thinks the code you're posting is malicious and has blocked it.

I've tweaked the rules it's using, so you should be able to post now.

Okay, nice, now I was first asked to click "I am not a robot" and then had two sessions of picking images which includes boats, after doing so my question was finally posted. Thank you ! JohnDoea‭ about 1 month ago

I just tried to edit the question and again had to go through a similar process (I think it might be with any edit this way) ; I humbly suggest to consider to ease the rules a bit more for edits, if it's a swift and easy task... For your kind consideration... JohnDoea‭ 30 days ago
