As an administrator, I should be able to edit posts no matter how old they are. I've checked that the proper settings are configured on the forum for me to do so. However, on one particular post, when I make my edits and either try to preview or directly post I get this message:

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /threads/ubbthreads.php on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

So, if I'm able to edit any other post, what's the problem with this one?

corrupt table possibly? Not sure, but I have also seen settings even for administrators for time to edit a post. I will look at it tonight, but I think that has to be set even for Admins (as far as actually editing a post).

Thanks Dunny. I've made sure in the comtrol panel that the value for administrators is set to "1" in the "Edit any post" section of Forum Permissions. Thats the first thing I checked. Then I checked to make sure that I'm and admin smile. Then I tried to edit other posts in that same forum that were both older and newer.

Within this post are several links to threads that were posted in our old system using UBB Threads 6.5. Could those links be the problem?

Alright. I think that I found the answer. If you all have any insight it would be helpful.

In this post there were old links to threads from the old 6.5 UBBThreads plus some url's to external web sites. All of the old threads links were dead and several of the external sites were as well. Once I removed ALL of the "[ url ]" tags, the "forbidden" message went away.

So, does version 7.5.7 have code checking whereby those "[ url ]" tags are validated?

This is a Web Server Error, not a UBB.Threads error.

Ask your webhost if they have Mod_Security installed and ask them to look at your weblogs accordingly, there is likely something in this posting that is triggering the (rather absurdly strict) security module to not allow the content to be displayed/edited.
