Should this be in the FAQ page?

One Fix for this problem (at least)

Having struggled with this problem for 2 days, I was very surprised to find that there is a simple solution.

The answer appears to be to add this line to the .htaccess file in the root directory of the specific Joomla installation:

"Here's what works for me. I'm using Joomla 1.5.3, SEF: on, Apache mod_rewrite; on. Just add this line to your .htaccess."

SecFilterEngine Off

Just don't forget to comment out this line after changing one's site configuration ...

hope that this helps others. John K
