Summary: "post has been blocked by administrator' when inserting curly bracket {}
Created: 2013-07-17 13:50

Version: 2.2.44
OS: unknown, recent

Description: I am unable to include any curly brackets in my wiki pages. That includes inside of the formatting indicators [==] and [@@]. This is a new problem, in the last few months. I have many pages that already had brackets on them, but I cannot add ANY text to those because of the warning/error.

Warning: preg_match() [function.preg-match]: Compilation failed: nothing to repeat at offset 0 in /pmwiki/scripts/blocklist.php on line 172

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at pmwiki/scripts/blocklist.php:172) in pmwiki/pmwiki.php on line 1176

Editing Main.Dilemma This post has been blocked by the administrator

{} - testing to see if this is a problem with PITS too

Edit: I have confirmed this is a problem with the BlockList. Changing my EnableBlockList to 1 from 10 appears to be a fix. So someone made a change to the SiteAdmin.BlockList that screwed things up.

This should have been fixed in version 2.2.51, see http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.web.wiki.pmwiki.user/60911/. If the problem appears in the latest release (pmwiki-2.3.35), please re-open the entry. --Petko July 17, 2013, at 02:38 PM
