http to https

Post by SapphireRoad »

Now I wonder if it increases security practically but at least it would allow FireFox to evaluate site as safe.
It works like this: I put http I get on eutm forum
I put https I get warning about site being a security risk.
Can't embed links to this forum well on my site until this is solved, also might be a sabotage for your search results and people traffic in case it works not https-friendly.

The security alert started coming up a while back. The admin/mod/support team discussed it. We didn't find any actual harm being done. We urged members to be cautious, and to alert us if anything fishy was happening.

I’m glad you mentioned it. I thought it was an issue on my iPad, not on the site.

on Firefox I get a little picture of a lock with a red line through it. meaning, what, no lock?
and on Internet Explorer I get an upside down exclamation point in a circle.
I'm thinking of uploading Chrome for my lap top, that's what I use on my tablet but this is where I first noticed a red triangle with and exclamation point pops up when I go to make a post, when just viewing it is the same as IE, circle with upside-down exclamation point.

Don't be alarmed, this does not mean the site is not safe or secure, it simply means EUTM is using the older version of the internet protocol.
HTTPS encrypst data transimission. It's only better when you visit a site which deals with payment. In a forum, this is not an issue. The browsers warn that this site may eventually be unsafe, because it doesn't encrypt data transmitted between servers. EUTM does not contain any unsafe data, nor does it deal with payments, so using https is not mandatory or necessary.

Thanks for letting me know about this. I'm going to look into it. Hopefully it's not difficult to switch to https.

I set up https. So please link to that if you're creating links to the site.

Marvellous

enough for main site which is essential to you.
Sadly wherever there is hyperlink containing http whole displayed page
for example this topic is not safe as long as in my first post is hyperlink example with http

2nd thing perhaps Den of the Firebird hyperlink in FF's signature is in http thus making all sites where she posted marked as insecure because of presence of that hyperlink ... all she needs is to rewrite it adding that one 's'

also topics with videos and media that started with http for youtube or whatever

but yes, as it is now eutm.com/forum will be seen as secure which should be a tremendous help
