Important Security Update

Great News!

We are happy to announce we are improving security across our network and adding Secure Sockets Layer or SSL to the site. This means going forward you'll see Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS); the secure version of HTTP, the protocol used to send data between your browser and the website that you are connected to. This means all communications between your browser and the website will have another layer of encryption. We take the security of your data seriously so updates like this do happen from time to time. There is no downtime or major issues anticipated in this change. If you do notice anything about the site operating not as it should please make sure we are the first to know. You can send a PM to this account with details and we can investigate. Thanks, and if you have any questions about this let me know.

-Your Admin Team

Cool! I kinda wondered about that when I first signed up here, seemed strange to not have it.

Don't forget to amend any shortcut links (bookmarks etc) you have to https://

Currently it doesn't re-direct to https.

Is this the reason that image links to external images don't seem to be working?

Works on the mobile version of the site but not desktop, every image I have ever put up has disappeared

Interesting. Paul, it looks like your hosting provider isn't using https as my https links using smugmug show up fine. Wonder if there's a setting in the forum software to allow non https external linking?

I can sort my future images to be https but that means lots of previous (hopefully useful) images lost to forum members

Looks like a couple of plugins and fixes out there to rectify the http images on the https forum. I bet that'd fix it right up.

Where are your previous images hosted. Most providers should offer SSL support at this point.
