So you’ve purchased one of our turbo-charged SEO websites powered by WordPress and have tricked it out even more, with new plugins, new permalink rules and maybe more. Suddenly, while writing a post, you discover that WordPress stalls and will not allow you publish new content. Not to fret, I know the solution.

This happened to me before and it took some researching by my AWESOME hosting company, LiquidWeb, to find the answer. If WordPress is stalling after you click Publish when writing or editing a post, simply shoot an email to your hosting company with the following text:

There may be a problem with mod_security that is tripping the modsec rule, preventing me from updating WordPress posts. Please exclude the wp-admin section from modsec at your earliest convenience.

That’s it. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes.
