Hi Diana.

20a Hack secures page headline (6) ... SPLASH (headine = 'slash' containing the 'p' from 'page').

Hi again.

8d This is not OK, run together online (8) --e-r---.

I'm going to clutch at straws here ...

Assuming that your letters are right, then ABERRANT fits the first half of the clue. I'm not sure why it fits the second half of the clue other than Aberrant is the name of an online role-playing game.

Hi Diana and Jim,
I also am completely stuffed in this corner,and with the same clues,but "aberrant" is not right,
as 16a is EYEBALL therefore 8d is ??E?R?L?
Any more help will be very useful.
Regards to you all,
Jerry

... and the other is MYRIAD - Dairymaids (farm girls) without the aids (equipment) and then reversed

I do like the clues, though
