I think I’ve run into a peculiar bug that I can’t wrap my head around. I’ll note in advance this is a fresh EE 2.9.0 installation with no third party modules and that this error is occurring as a Super Admin in the Control Panel.
I noticed that when attempting to post into a channel with a Grid Field Type that I get the following error:
“You are not authorized to perform this action”
This error only occurs when there are rows in the Grid Field for the new Channel post; meaning if I don’t add any rows, the post is successful and once I add a row, it fails. I tried with multiple columns (multiple fields per row) or just a single column (single field); neither attempt worked. I also tried to see if it had to do with specific field types in the Grid, but that didn’t fix the problem either when I tried different ones.
I tried fiddling with some of the security settings, like whether it was using Session or Cookies only; that didn’t seem to fix it. I also disabled the requirement to have an IP and User Agent data, that failed to fix it as well.
Any thoughts? I’m sure I can fix it myself by taking a look at the files directly if it’s a genuine bug, but I was hoping someone here can elucidate so that wasn’t necessary (e.g. I’m hoping it’s a minor oversight and didn’t require me to hack at anything).
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.
