Including filtered links causes posting to fail with obscure error

Including certain links in a post, which I assume are being filtered, cause drafts to apparently go “offline”, and posting to fail with a generic “403 Forbidden” error. As an example, this can be reproduced by including the following link (sans space) in the post body:

h ttps://

It would be much more helpful if the cause of the error was indicated. Something like “this link cannot be posted”.


Thanks for the report! Are you still seeing the issue?

I am still seeing the issue with both drafts and posting.
