Error with posting in the community

I was trying to post in the Watersports activities, and received the following error message: 

Access Denied

You don't have permission to access "http://www.rei.com/conversations/forums/postpage.messageeditorform.form.form.form" on this server.

Reference #18.adbe2817.1617037663.12d834cf

 

I logged out and back in and received the same message.

Tried for a third time and still no luck, even though I can post here. 🙂

I simplified the post to a few words and a link to the article and it worked.   🙂

Hi @Joe - Thanks for giving us these updates, though we're sorry to hear you're getting that access denied response.

There have been some reports of posts with links getting error messages. We are actively working to have this error resolved and have added your notes to the report.

In the meantime, linking the message as you did above, rather than hyperlinking, often resolves the issue. Another option that may help is clearing your browser's cache. 

Thanks again for taking the time to share this information with us! We are working hard to get this problem solved. 

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
