Weird Problem with WordPress

· One min read

When I was writing my post “Setting a Static IP Address in Ubuntu“, I encountered a strange problem.

In the post I was describing the location of of a directory and it contained the following:

/ etc/network

Notice that there is a space between the word “etc” and the preceding forward slash? If I were remove the space between these two characters, I will get the following error message when I preview or publish the post:

Method Not Implemented

POST to /wordpress/wp-admin/post.php not supported.

I don’t know if this is an isolated incident or a WordPress vulnerability. I wonder if anyone else has encountered this problem.

The problem mentioned above is no longer applicable because this site is now using a static site generator.
