I'm getting emails that people can't get in.  I know Bosom Buddies, usually a site with lots of posts has only had Mary and me posting today.

Anybody else hearing from people with problems getting here?

jane

Whatever the issue was, it seems to have been fixed.

Michael, i see that you are in our forum, i have noticed twice during the last couple of days our forum site has gone down for a short time but thankfully i am back in now and see that you too are also in...time now is 6.30 am UK time...

That's odd, as everything should be secure (https). If you come across anything that isn't, let me know and I'll look into it further.

Michael i have a long list of not secures which is longer than my list of secures...
Soda Shoppe
Money matters-Bank on the square
Card shop-holidays, birthdays
Computer store-general computer - Email program
" Tablets, pads
Home making all Index, cooking recipes-whats for dinner
Leisure activities RIP Jim Noble and RIP Merle Hagard
Medical corner-other medical conditions
Soap box corner-gripes
Tranquil cove-all, apart from June D-Ray France, Jeanne Lee
I have yet to test the rest but i will then add them to this list...all the above are showing as "Not secures.."

Photos and more-photo slide also not secure...
Photo chalenges seem all to be not secures..

I haven't checked on the Village clubhouse-Wildlife-General discussions yet..
Seems to also be a mixture in The wildlife, some secures, some not secures...
Just gone back into Soda Shoppe, now showing as secure, seem at varying times to show as secure or not secure...same as Norms B & T, yesterday it wasn't, now it is secure...seems these secures-not secures are playing tricks on me...
I am starting to wish i had never brought this subject up...If no one else is seeing this, then maybe it is me and my computer having this problem only...

I'm not entirely sure how you're getting non-secure for any of that. The forum is set to use https throughout and I have things set up to automatically redirect to the secure URL as well (so if you go to http you'll be redirected to https). I also have it set up to properly handle external images that aren't being shown from a secure site (and the max size limit for that is high enough that it should handle just about anything).

I opened Soda Shoppe just now (https://www.seniorsandfriends.org/index.php?topic=786.msg171611;boardseen#new) and it showed as not secure.

same for SENTENCES and Follow That Name, Six letter Word Game  in fun, in PHOTO old and new.

Bubble..i have been facing this same problem for a few weeks now...our " not secures " rooms..

Yes Vanilla, me too, but I never worried much about it because I have nothing of consequence neither on my computer nor on my old phone. My security on Window has always proved to be good.

If you use the Firefox browser, there is an encryption addon called Http everwhere that automatically makes a site HTTP secure. Now, this won't totally protect you, especially if you are overriding dangerous site warnings especially from spam emails but it will protect you on sites such as Seniors and Friends that are not secure.

I don't know if other sites have the addon or something similar, but I wouldn't surf the web without it.


HTTPS Everywhere
Encrypt the Web! Automatically use HTTPS security on many sites.
Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site.

The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by rewriting all requests to these sites to HTTPS.

What browser / operating system are you using? I use Chrome and everything shows as secure for me.

I seem to be only having this problem if I use google chrome, my usual choice but just testing internet explorer and this seems to be fine...ie: Soda Shoppe not secure using google chrome but secure if using internet explorer...

All of the S&F sites show as secure with Firefox because I use the app I mentioned. Chrome doesn't have the app.


Oldiesmann

Tried it in both Chrome and Firefox on Linux and everything is still showing as secure. Will try it on Windows when I get a chance. I don't understand why it's showing as not secure for you though.
