why ban IP's though.. for guest viewing ?

Surely some good captcha code upon registration would thwart spammers.

I don't just ban ip for guest viewing, i ban only for a reason, Perhaps your IP addy is on my Country Ban list, and thats there because of the amount of spambots that have been doing the curcuits lately.

The site is mainly UK Business Related So i really don't need Asian, Eastern Block or Russian members signing up

Nothing personal, Send me your IP and i'll make sure its cool

Works great for me.... Totally cool. Just have to figure out where to put it... I have it in my footer now but I think a forum would be better.

Thanks.. no problems with install.

I decided to use it as a forum, even off topic. It gets people talking.

This is verrry nice!!!

However, since my site is music related, I wonder if I can "pull" data from another source like:

http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/

http://datadragon.com/day/

Anyway, it's great mod indeed!

You could use something like this http://www.newsniche.com/using-javas...isplay-rss.php

Take the RSS feeds from those sites and parse them through that program so they're html and it would be pretty much the same as this.

like here is one for your first link This Daily Music

Sorry to go off topic

Just updated with additional code to make it as 2nd post of each thread



Might be useful to use it as a sponsored advert, by adding a text ad to the bottom of the code ??

Enjoy
