I was trying to add the following SQL source code to a comment:

DELETE a,b,c FROM wp_posts a
LEFT JOIN wp_term_relationships b ON (a.ID = b.object_id)
LEFT JOIN wp_postmeta c ON (a.ID = c.post_id)
WHERE a.post_type = 'revision'

and tried this approaches:

  • posted by using the backoffice
  • used Source Code in Comments Plugin with the code brackets
  • and the <code> tags
  • through Postable (www.elliotswan.com/postable) first

It always redirect to the homepage.

Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

I can post that text in a comment just fine "as is", no wrapping HTML.. – t31os Dec 16 '10 at 17:48
me too; can you post a link to the page on which this is happening? – onetrickpony Dec 16 '10 at 17:56

Sorry guys!

The problem was with the configurations in the WordPress plugin Firewall 2...it was blocking the submission.

Thanks ayway.

I just wanted to comment that this might be caused by some "security" plugin. – hakre Dec 17 '10 at 12:07
that's a pretty bad plugin if it resorts to such actions to block spam or hack attempts... – onetrickpony Dec 17 '10 at 13:35
