Hi all,
I have not needed to change any K2 settings for many years, but I recently tried to save a change and I got this:
'403 forbidden
Access to this resource on the server is denied!'

I get the same response when I try to many any change to any K2 setting.
I'm using J 3.9.14 and the latest K2.

Any idea what a solution might be?

Thanks, Nick

Have you modified permissions in any way for that user? Although, if you can see the settings but not save them, the problem is obviously somewhere else...

Thank you.
Permissions is for superuser, so this is probably not the cause.
Any suggestions as to where to look to resolve the issue?

No idea really. Setup a new Joomla site with K2 only just to verify that something's not broken on your current site.

Might re-installing K2 help, or could it make it worse?
For example, will I lose settings/data if I re-install K2?

You can re-install K2 anytime you like.

You will ONLY lose your data if you un-install it first. So be careful there.

Hi all,

Nick

I have exactly the same problem.
I've tried everything: I've changed php versions, installed K2 2.9, 2.10, 2.12, dev ..

How did you fix this error?

Thanks!

Could have been some old/incompatible plugin.

I too have not had to make any changes to K2 settings for a long time (years?).
I am now updating my template and am getting the 403 error when trying to make changes to K2 settings (latest K2 version; J! 3.9.18)
Was this error ever resolved by the others? Any idea what may have caused it?
A bit annoying when the website works, but can't change anything.
Hope someone can help.
Thanks, Nick
