This problem just seemed to pop up out of nowhere.

When trying to add new user fields the site says that the field was added successfully, but when I click Save Changes I get a 403 forbidden page.

So far we have tried:

  • Adding multiple different types of fields
  • Turning off all plugins except wpforo and the custom fields add on and changing to a default theme.
  • Deleting a field, seems to have the same effect as trying to save one
  • Just click the save button without changing anything, also gets a 403 page
  • Updating wpforo and add ons to the latest version

Any ideas on why this might be happening, the client said it was working normally this morning and suddenly started doing this.

Hi @stacy-brockmeier,

Is your WP a Multi-site installation? Are you sure you have an administrator access?

Are you sure your account has Admin Usergroup. This is the forum group, and it can be checked on forum front-end My Profile page:

wpForo user profile usergroup

Please deactivate the addon activate it back, then register a new administrator, make sure the Usergroup is Admin in Dashboard > Users > Profile admin page and check it again:

wpForo user profile edit screen forum usergroup
