    When I hit the "Save" button after configuring izap_video or tidypics settings, I always get an 403 Forbidden error. Apache error.log says: [Wed Jun 30 19:58:15 2010] [warn] [client] mod_fcgid: stderr: WARNING: 2010-06-30 19:58:15...
    • It looks like ModSecurity is hitting a match on save actions for these plugins.  Just a guess, but it could be because these plugins are passing the path of required binaries (eg, /usr/bin/ffmpeg) in POST which is being caught by the ModSecurity rule (scanning for 'bin').

    • I completely agree that many of the plugins are poorly written. One of the objectives for Elgg 1.8 is to rewrite some these core plugins. I believe the first version of the blog rewrite is finished. You can get it from svn or look at the code here:

      It only works on the Elgg 1.8 code base, but you can see that it is a much tighter plugin. You could use it as a template.
