I agree that this is likely a problem external to PmWiki, probably some  
antispam filter from mod_security. The "Invalid page name" reply very likely  
comes from an address where the visitor is redirected when the post is  
rejected, an address which PmWiki receives and tries to process but the page  
name is invalid - for example with more than one dot.

If you cannot modify your server settings, this may be worked around by  
setting some InterMap prefixes, for example set in Site.InterMap

   Go: http://$1

then in your pages [[Go:www.site.net]] instead of [[http://www.site.net]].

See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/InterMap .

But this is probably too annoying.
