You're welcome Rob Forgive me if I sound like I'm trying to teach you how to suck eggs; I'm sure you know better, but I think the use of Mailerlite, Mailchimp or ConvertKit should mostly take care of GDPR. Or have I got the wrong end of the stick with what you're trying to achieve? Wink

No, it's no problem, thank you - I appreciate any help I can get, as this side of things is a bit new to me. As it happens, regarding emailing members, I might not actually do this in the end if it's not absolutely necessary. Originally I'd planned to switch off all members' "contact buttons", and then let each member switch back on if desired. But this might be going too far for this site, because I've now made the default for all newly registering members "off", so they have to actively select to have personal contacts - and all other members could make their decision to switch on or off at any time via their profile, so hopefully I'm covered in that particular respect. But if you think of anything else that I ought to do to make this forum compliant, I welcome any advice, thank you.

Hi again Yanster, Once again, many thanks for your support (I'm still wearing it!). It's great to receive advice on this, as initially it looked quite a scary situation. My hope now is that I've done just enough to keep our members happy (which is the most important part for me), and to reassure any authorities, who are sad enough to want to check, that I've tried to comply! Hopefully they'll be spending their time chasing the "big boys" where they can earn big bucks, and not pay much attention to little sites like ours.
