Unable To Post Events? SL Errors?

Recommended Posts

Hey! I've been trying to post events on second life.com for the past few days, but I keep getting an "internal error message." Is anyone else having this issue? I'm wondering if SL is working on this issue, but I see nothing on the front page about it.

Thanks!

I filed a ticket and was asked to remove @ and & from the event title and description to see what happened.

I did that and the description text had inverted comma's/quote marks which the editor code turns in to & and # so it failed :P 

It would seem that someone is trying to protect against SQL/PHP injection attacks via the events entry screen perhaps - FaceBook and Wordpress manage to protect against such attacks and allow punctuation and symbols - perhaps there's lag in the Labs web development team? :P

Sometimes, programmers are too lazy/busy to remember to code EVERYTHING to allow for special characters.
