I have updated the whitelist part and tested on 5 IP numbers, with 100% results.
The Whitelisted IP numbers do not get blocked whilst any other does, problems with being blocked but still being able to get pages has been sorted.
The PayPal issues some seem to have had I have also resolved.
Can I ask you to test this once more for me?
What i need is for you to see ensure you can see the site
Then get yourself banned (Please make a note of your IP number)
Try to get the index page again (you should not be able to, please advise if you can)
PM me with your IP number, i will then remove it from the banned list and add it to the whitelist.
Then try to ban yourself again
you should find yourself redirected to the index.php page, and will not be banned.
Thank you all for your time, and help
