It probably is. When I log into the admin control panel I get a msg about insecure login and I have to change http:// to https://.

Hopefully Scott will know what to do when he sees this.

So the admin control panel is different than the user control panel cause I don't have an insecure connection there?

It must be the same for the ads too in that they're called http:// cause I don't have an ad blocker installed and don't see them in Chrome or Firefox.

The insecure YouTube call is clearly shown from the page source.

<div class="content"><div style="text-align:center;"><iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/36GT2zI8lVA?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></div>

And the Ad call seems to be referencing a javascript that I'm unable to paste in as it blocks the entire page from working.

Seems the entire board needs updating for secure connections.

My Pc died and i've noticed that moderating is too unwieldy on the phone (any mods reading this, please help). Also noticed that the forum freezes on a phone if you try to start a new topic or PM

Looks like we can go wild now 'eh? Thanks for the heads up :)

I have fixed it so that the website redirects automatically from http to https:// and so that the YouTube BBCode embeds the videos using https://.

This will improve security overall as well as make it so those members whose internet browsers were hiding the YouTube videos should show now them.
