...url.../newspad/admin_editor.asp?TID=0&T=BlogPost&F=&Submit=Create+BlogPost+%3E%3E

yields:

404 - File or directory not found.

The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

I've checked an all include files are in the right place, the admin_editor.asp file is there.... not really sure why it's squawking about.

Any ideas?

Possibly you have some type of filtering enabled.

As it looks like an IIS 404 error message possibility the filtering is enabled on the IIS web server.

Yep, filtering, good call.

Your file uses >> in the submit button text, which when submitted via GET, is what's causing the issue - because the hosting provider has URL scanning in place to prevent injection attacks.

Your license code makes it pretty clear that no modification is permitted. Can you please correct this and issue an update?

This will be fixed for the next release.

The license agreement for the free does now allow for modification of the software if you wanted to make changes yourself.
