Like in quotes Creates problems. Try That word in quotes with either a space after the e or any words after it.

"Don't say that word"
....
"How can we not say the word if you don't tell us what it is"
"Aaaaaah"

I removed a couple of unused mods. Have to see if that has any effect.

"like " Still giving the same error, from what I gathered on google it's some kind of security setting from your webhost which SMF forums doesn't like.

It's an SQL thing. = and like are SQL operators and something makes the software think that it's performing a select query instead of an insert/update.

I thought so but have no idea what a select query or an insert update is, I just know that like and from are codey things :p

Can't believe I  didn't think of that before.
My Theodidactus, now I see that you are excessively simple of mind and more gullible than most. The Crystal Sphere you seek cannot be found in nature, look about you...wander the whole cosmos, and you will find nothing but the clear sweet breezes of the great ethereal ocean enclosed not by any bound

Well I suppose it helps that I read a book about javascript and spent about 2 hours attempting a webpage. Oh and a few hours on whatever scripting language MIRC uses.  I also know java isn't javascript which is probably news to half the internet.....

The host gave me a snippet to override the behavior, but that didn't work. Now they will put me in a white list so hopefully that will work. If not, I'll put in cuss word replacements for like, =, and where so the issue will seem to disappear

Thanks for the tip with the cursive, because that really helped me out today, so I didn't have to rewrite 4 paragraphs. I also have new information gathered by this, that finally shows some structure in the errors: All the paragraphs that caused a problem today always started with "Then", and the next word in line would here cause the issue and need to be cursiv(-ied?). Maybe "Then" means something special in SQL that causes this, but anyway, it can be avoided.

Good news is the host has been able to replicate the error. Bad new is they need to escalate it to their engineers.
