Just to reassure you Sorastro, the forum files and database are hosted on and with a professional, 'paid for', by me, company.
Plus the only info about any members stored is their email address.

Contacted the hosting company. They gave me a few pointers of things to check.
All should be sorted. Everything secure and fully padlocked down now.

Don't know why, but the banner(picture) at the top of the page wasn't secure. Eh !!!  (y) MD

Don't forget to check all your bookmarks or saved favourites/links to the forum. They must include the 's' at the end of 'http'
EG: https://www.chesterfieldonline.org

Thank you Fly.... just clicked onto the above and I now have the padlock and it says site secure.
It just says chesterfieldonline.org {in bold after the padlock} the rest not, but seems to have done the trick.

Thanks again....

There's not many people use the forum, but I'll always do my best to make members feel safe if they do (y)

Just a query Fly.. nothing major.

The last 3 times I have logged on, whatever page I'm on when I attempt to log on and click login it flips to a different page and It doesn't log me in, but on the second attempt it works o.k. and I'm in...........funny that, as I say not important just wondering why? Thanks H.

Just an update Fly....

Started losing wi-fi a few days ago and rang plusnet, ended up taking the cover off the phone jack and plugging it directly in which seemed better. They sent out an engineer to check the exterior lines and reported they had found a fault, since then O.K. but still jumps when logging on but not every time now.

I didn't quite understand what you meant the first time you mentioned this peculiarity, so I didn't actually 'do'  anything.

So, this time I followed your post to the letter and guess what, you're right.
You come to the forum home page, select a board, and a thread/topic in it, then 'login'.
It logs you in, but takes you onto the next thread/topic.

I've got an idea why it's doing it, a bug in the software, the login page is adding a 1 to the thread count,
but I think it's out of my knowledge to fix it.
I'll see if the forum has missed any updates to it's software, and ask a few questions on the SMF forum users group  (y)
