Forum update this week - SSL

This week you will see a small change in the address bar of your browser as we move to an all SSL platform. (more reading here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTPS)

For a long while now the forum login pages (where password info is passed) have been secure (httpS) but as noted by many, the rest of the site was not. We had delayed updating the entire site because there are thousands of links in posts to offsite images that are not https and those images might break (not display in posts). As those links recede in the rear-view mirror with the passage of time, we're hoping this will not be a major problem for forum readers. Look for the little lock icon in your browser address bar this week.

If you are an app user and run into trouble after the update, you may need to remove and reinstall the app.

What I'm seeing in Janet H's thread is that many if not all of the helpful photos and links that are valuable to users will disappear. Not a good thing when so many depend on these links.



Can I assume that this will happen on iRV2 as well as the Keystone and many other owned websites?

Yes. We have waited as long as possible to make this change in the hopes that image hosting services would change to SSL so there would be no issue. Most have now and for those that haven't, as they do images will become available again.

If you see a broken image, you should still be able to click on it to view the content at the host site.

Fingers crossed

Glad to see the change happening. I know it may cause hick-ups for us users, but.... just like Army food ... "This too shall pass!"

Updating the Secure Socket Layer, going to HTTPS, the way to go if you want to remain secure. Where are you getting your certificate? I believe AWS will give you a Cert if hosted through them, I think a 301 redirect will help going from HTTP to HTTPS, depending the VM OS....good luck !
