The security plugins for the site have been disabled as they were blocking people as spammers as false positives. But you shouldn`t be blocked.

I`m currently still blocked myself on my work computer but have access through my tablet.

I have now dropped these tables from the database and removed the files (hopefully). There is nothing else I can see that would be blocking IPs.


I recommend force reloading browsers and/or clearing browser caches as well.

I`m still blocked on main PC- but able to access with iPhone on 3G. Anything connected via home wifi will not load the site.

As far as I can tell there is nothing looking to block IPs at the moment - the plugins and their associated database tables have been removed. 


If you are still having problems try clearing your browser cache or resetting the IP on your wireless network and try again. If you are still having problems after doing that, let me know.

Really sorry about this but we`re completely stumped as to why this is happening.  I`m also currently locked out from my work PC but can connect from other devises, even on the same network.


Just no idea what is happening as we have disabled the security plugins which we believed were the issue and this hasn`t changed anything.


I will raise it with our hosts to see if it is something they are doing.

Still no luck- can`t post any pics as the camera icon in posting a thread does not appear on 3G. Everything still blocked through wifi- not sure what is happening- not sure how many others are affected.

Could you try something for me? Clear your cache and then switch your router/modem off for about 10mins. That should be enough time for you to be assigned a new IP address. If it then works then we know that it is IPs being blocked. If you could record your IP before and after then this would confirm that it`s changed.

If you are still blocked then let me know your IP address as I`m sending these to the hosting company to see if they are blocked at server level.

Same goes for anyone else who sees this and is having problems.

Apologies for this issue which is causing much head scratching.
