update June 3, 2018: Sorry, there was a problem when updating the site to SSL and posting was affected for most users (annoyingly, not the one I use to test things though). Email andrew@diaryland.com with any remaining bugs that stop you from posting. (No need to tell me about archiving problems, etc, I'm working on those).

More fixes soon.
