This when posting a topic with 40 or so img links. I have adjusted post settings to allow unlimited characters and to not restrict linked image size.

A smaller post worked but when trying to reply with the remainder of the topic I hit the same problem as if the topic size is limited?

That's usually the message you get when your hosts mod_security is tripped.

It'll be down to one word or character in one of the links. My host recently added the % sign last week which caused a lot of problems until I got them to clear it!

Try halving the text and posting.

If it works then the offending word/letter is in the bit you didn't post and vice versa. Keep doing that until you work out what's setting it off.

Hi,

I'll give that a blast Kevin, thanks. I did notice that there were only 3 other topics on a similar vein. And mod_security was also mentioned..

Hi,

Yes. ....sighs.... How stupid of me to utter the word Rolex in the same breath as Zurich or Switzerland!!

I will be in communication with the hosts.

Strange as R.o.l.e.x went through fine! You'd have thought they'd be more rigorous!! LoL

Thanks again... :)
