Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

Add a new fotonote not working right now

I get a blank screen in both Firefox and Chrome. Is it only me?

Hi Paulo,

I have disabled fotonotes for a little while while we address a spamming problem noted elsewhere in the forum. Hopefully, the feature will be back tomorrow -- but I really want to focus on halting spam attack, given how well we're doing these days on other methods.

Sorry about this (but please assign a bit of blame to the spammers as well ;-))

Thank you so much for the swift response -- both to my question and to those pesky spammer attacks. It's never too early in the day for spam hygiene!

Keep up the good work!

Fotonotes seem to be back — as is spam :(
"daubendiejosp" is at it again…

Heh, any chance of a temporary solution, like enabling the feature for the current user, in case they care to use it in their own pictures, while blocking it to everyone else?

Or maybe this is more trouble than solving the spam problem itself =\

Yup, just added that -- see for more details.
