Some Invincible words seems to be preventing saving of Abstracts etc

Describe the issue or problem
Any time the journal editors or the submiting authors type some words in the abstract or reference fields, the fields will stop saving and this is preventing submission of manuscripts.

Steps I took leading up to the issue
In the first attached image, the abstract will save without a problem with the words shown, but if some other words, as indicated in the second image, then error will be given and it will not save!

I will sincerely be happy to have this solved, as it is seriouly causing problem for our journal.

What application are you using?
We are using OJS

Hi @Oladiran_Abimbola,

Are you able to check your PHP error logs? That may provide some clues?

Hi @Oladiran_Abimbola,

Also check your server’s security logs and some of the other threads in the forum about mod_security. It’s likely that a security module in your web server is interfering with OJS based on the content you send.

Thanks, a lot :pray:
I put off that and everything works fine!
The only problem now is to know whether putting it off is a good idea :person_shrugging:
