Secure the forum with SSL please!

Dear moderators, forum owners, web techs,

Please modify the hosting of the site so all content is provided over SSL - HTTPS (little green lock in your address bar). Moving forward HTTP is a definite no-no. Passwords are sent in plain text - it's not ok anymore.
Most browsers will start complaining about non-ssl connections and it will only get worse.
This is neither an expensive (mostly free) nor a complicated (ask the hosting provider).

We'll all be happy and safe forum users!


:thanks:

Hi everyone,

good suggestion! The one you mention actually also suported by the host so just activated it, now you can also use the forum through SSL via https://www.norduserforum.com

[for now it is not forced, to run some more tests, as there are some small issues to sort out, and to see how it works. But you can use it if you prefer already.]

Cheers, Johannes

Just a small update:
We just made serving the forum through https the default, so all content is not transferred using SSL.
Let us know in case you find any unusual behaviour.
Thanks!
