Form preview 403 error

  1. I have several instances of WP installed in a sub directory (eg: something.ca is installed at something.ca/cms) and when we preview forms in the admin area a 403 error is generated. If I remove the /cms portion in the preview URL everything works fine.

    On line 224 of form_list.php I can see that site_url is being called for the previews, should this not be set to use the bloginfo('url') instead? Or is there something else that I can do to work around this issue?

    Thanks,
    Troy Chaplin

  2. Do you get the same result when you place the form on a live page?

  3. Hey Rob,

    No, the forms are displaying properly on the front end. Preview is the only issue, I can edit, view entries and edit notifications without problem, all of which also have the installation path in the URL.

  4. Sounds like you might be missing Step 7 here:

    Double check that you have the index.php and .htaccess in the subfolder.

  5. Perfect, it was the missing index.php file. Thanks for the help Rob, much appreciated!
