    try your backup. Hosts should backup at least daily. If not re extract the original install. Presuming there's no custom messages since obviously.

    Appears to have worked so thanks again hhavatar - silly mistake and I should've thought about backing everything up before attempting to add the mod :(

    Think it was more the file locations and not so much the files themselves I was going wrong with.

    Are there any alternatives to SMS verification that could prove to be more effective than using captcha?

    Admin setting set to "admin has to manually activate each account" and a phone.
    When someone needs activating ring the phone number they entered when they joined if the number don't work delete that member

    Yes I was thinking that but rather than flood the database with spoof accounts I was hoping there was another way. I'll stick to your suggestion nay27uk. In the admin page, is there a way of filtering the users by the group they are in rather than the defaults (verified, non verified etc)?

    If you do what I said they will all be un verified until you as admin click on Verify on the list users screen and then click on a button to accept the changes.

    Doing it that way will require you to call every phone mumber of all new members that join just to check if they answer or if it even rings if you get through to someone you could write a list of questions to ask them to verify their ID. any numbers entered that do not ring or no one answers just delete that member.

    You can also make the phone number field a required field on registration so they must fill it out, the setting is in I think users > Registration fields just make phone number a required field in there if it isn't already

    Ok thank you - any suggestions for filtering the list of users so I can (for example) view users in specific countries. The U.K. for example?
