Hi,

I built a site for a friend a while back using sNews 1.4, I did make a couple of mods such as "keyrocks" multiple file uploads.

The site was hacked a while back, I posted about it here - http://snewscms.com/forum/index.php?topic=6999.0.

Unfortunately my attempts at making it more secure were not good enough.

I have currently disabled the login, this is the site in question - http://swcp.co.uk/

Would anyone be interested in either upgrading the site to the latest sNews or making the existing site secure, please advise on your costs too.

The client is based in Central London - which could be a bonus.

Regards
Ben

I'm not "esspie'erring" on this one... Just a wondering... Not much articles in there. Wouldn't it be easier and more cost effective to just upload 1.7 and edit the indexfile and css file to go with it, and then copy the articles onto a new database ?

I think this is the amount they managed to get working before it was hacked and login disabled - http://www.swcp.co.uk/archives/

So, more than likely yes, the client would like someone to help with this and any future developments/tweaks.
