Both King Feeb and Yomptepi have reported on Facebook that they're getting a 'Forbidden' message when they try to access BCB. Any idea why this is happening, Jethro?


PS - The message reads: "Forbidden : You don't have permission to access to this document on this server. Apache server at"

I've not made any changes.

The forbidden message comes from the webserver that the site runs on, and not the site software itself. A banned user will get a different message entirely.

I'll investigate, but as it's late on a Friday I probably won't get any responses from support until Monday.

I keep trying to make a post in the mix club and the exact same thing is happening.

I have tried a number of ways, editing the response in Word and then typing the whole response but keep getting the same message, but strangely when I start a new post, no problems.

I am guessing this could be a setting thing my end?
