WordPress seems to be filtering Pastebin URLs.
When attempting to include pastebin links into either new or pre-existing posts, the following error is returned:
It seems most — if not all — pastebin URLs kill my posts. If a pastebin URL is included in a new post, it is deleted altogether and even the draft is sent into the abyss. If a pastebin URL is included into a pre-existing post, new changes are deleted and the post reverts to the previous draft.
I contacted my hosting company and they claimed to have no idea how or why this is occurring. Their only suggestion was that it must be WordPress.
So this has me wondering; what is causing this? I can’t think of any plug-ins that would be responsible, and beyond that, I can’t think of much else without seeming paranoid.
Whatever the cause, I thought it strange enough to document.
If it is a restriction, it is supremely stupid.
If only a bug, I’d sure like to know more about it.
