Urgent Site Notification

Urgent Site Notification

Fellow members of Orchids Online.

Following the installation of a security update for this site there were some major problems with the functionality of the Orchids Online website. In fact it was totally inaccessable for about 2 hours.

After some frantic work behind the scenes I have thankfully managed to get the site at least back online and accessible.

However some of the most loved features of the site have not come up yet so I need you all to bear with me for a while as I sort these things out one by one.
