    Marc, never forget that my IT knowledge consists of turning things off and on again. I'm a fully paid up Luddite. It was young Shaun who did whatever he did, but I would be delighted if you could throw a couple more chickens in the cauldron, and work whatever voodoo is necessary to make everything work again. Thank you.

    It's OK now because posting new topics and replies by anyone not a moderator or admin is disallowed on that forum.

    There's a ReCAPTCHA v2 plugin (checkbox style) that should work, when I get a minute I'll install that. Nothing is 100% effective, though. In the meantime, maybe re-enable posting and see how it goes (Shaun)?

    Hi Marc

    Probably not best discussing the background workings of the forum on an open thread so I'll just add to my post in the mods section.

    OK, but just so you know, I'm not in there!

    You have full access if and whenever you need it Marc

    Re: the other stuff mentioned above that I implemented. It was a quick temporary fix when I had limited time, just to try halt the on onslaught of spam in the interim. I'll revert it all back when we get the other measures in place.
