Error "The submitted form was invalid"

Post by PB » Tue May 05, 2020 11:57 am

Sometimes, not very often, but seems like every couple of weeks I get
The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.
when trying to reply to a topic (or start a new one). I tried a different browser, same result. It starts working again after a couple of hours or so.

I noticed that when it happens, the URL contains the session ID, which it normally does not.

Does it happen to someone else as well?

Also noticed the behaviour several week ago. Didn't report because it took only for couple of hours and never happen again.

Hi,

Not exactly that, but similar intermittent issues e.g. trying to log out -> 'You were not logged out, as the request did not match your session'.

As happens for you, wait long enough and everything is back to normal.

I don't understand what goes wrong, and (2 months ago) I couldn't find anything similar in the phpBB forum.

Regards,

David

I am sorry I forgot to write that the error displays in red above the edit for the post body. Never experienced the issue e with logging out.

There is a couple of threads about this issue on phpBB support forums, such as this or this.

When it happens I do not think I do something differently not I experience issues with other web sites. But as suggested in one of the threads linked above, I will try clearing cookies: suddenly having an SID in the URL may indicate something went wrong with them.

I guess I run into the issue more often as I spend way too much time here.
