Very Strange WordPress Error

February 6, 2008 by debbie T | WordPress

I just received a very strange WordPress error while trying to save my last article on iTunes.

I couldn’t save or publish the article, I would receive this error:

Precondition Failed
The precondition on the request for the URL /wp-admin/post.php evaluated to false.

I believe I narrowed it down to a specific sentence in my article that could be misunderstood as vicious code, I suppose.

I can’t even type in the sentence here because it causes the error when I save this article as well. So what I have done is break down the sentence into a list of words.

Isn’t that bizarre? It is the “deleting from Finder” that is causing the issue. I guess it is a safety precaution, and I do appreciate that, but it surprised me nonetheless.

There is one comment so far

  1. I’ve experienced the same error from WordPress.
    I got it after HEY I wonder if it’ll work in comments, but I won’t post the offending string here. – I’m experimenting and I’ll post the results on my site. See threeeighthsspacer.com
