https security

How do we properly setup https with our forums? I'm having no luck and I'm not sure if its a forums issue

Re: https security

What have you tried and what isn't working? What's the webserver you are using? Generally, the approach should be specific to your webserver - there's most likely nothing special about FluxBB in that regard.

Re: https security

It says its setup properly via the control panel from web host. Except its just not working when I try. I will contact customer service from hosting company. Just wanted to check here first. Thank you. Will update if its specific to FluxBB or something

My host is 1and1.ca and http://www.allr6.com https://www.allr6.com are the forums

Re: https security

Any ideas why when I click on a thread https://www.allr6.com/discuss the https becomes unsecure?? Even though the link is https for it? I don't get it. Anytime I go to view a thread it happens. viewtopic

Re: https security

Because you have insecure links on the pages,

search "http: " in viewing source code to track them and cure when you  can.

For example:

Re: https security

Ty. Thats so annoying. I've updated most of the urls but peoples avatars and urls in the post content are causing it. Thats so stupid. Ugh. Invasive bloody unsecure warnings deter people.

Major problem because when someone is linked to a topic from another external site then they try to Login they cant because its not secure. It does not let them. =/  Ah well

Peoples images in signatures not being secure. Oh well. Over it.

Re: https security

You can't do it all, for sure, but some links are yours, I suppose, and coming quite often like

Re: https security

surely if you look in phpmyadmin you can search all of the http:// and replace which ones you want from there
