Yes, you are banned. Yes, you are locked out. You know what you did- don't ever do that again! You are not secure!






Sorry. Just kidding. Haven't got a clue as to what's wrong.

The 's' in "https" should mean you ARE secure. Which browser and operating system are you using?

From the pic it looks like Windows 10 and he is using Chrome. Zoomed in on the URL and I'm not seeing the https:// before the www. Click on address to make sure it is all there, but I'm thinking about i explorer and it shows all the address. Does Chrome show the whole address the same way?

I am on Windows 10 and Chrome and have the same display. As long as I am not putting my credit card on the site, I don't think it's that big of an issue.

Thanks, babock. This old man can't see well enough to glean the information you posted... but I can see that I never use https when I access the system, either. No credit card here, either.

Explanation of the "Not secure" warning from Chrome support site:

https://support.google.com/chrome/an...indicator&rd=1

Here's Google's guide on how to fix it for free. Hopefully the site owners can get it corrected:

I actually noticed this a couple of months ago and asked one of the site administrators about it. This was the explanation I received:

Quote:
The reason is a little convoluted but here goes:

Last year google began to push websites to use https instead of http as a security update. A few months ago they began to actually began to display that little red triangle;"not secure" on browser address lines.

The forum software is built on an http platform and so this is difficult. We hand coded an update to make the LOGIN page https. This is the page where user credentials are passed and the only sensitive data we store. Once a member has logged in the site reverts to http (and the alert begins to display in browsers). Using https on all pages actually breaks the forum. Offsite links and hosted images no longer work, ads don't display, photos, etc.


So... as you login the page is secure (https) but once you have logged in the regular site is http. Since no login/pass info is being sent on these pages we believe this is safe and reasonable. There's little we can do to change this until we move to a new forum software platform which eventually we will have to do.

You can read more about the google alerts here: https://www.wired.com/story/google-c...-secure-label/

Well, since these forums are actually public anyway (so visitors can see it without logging in) and no one is submitting credit card information... I honestly don't see a problem. This is a "google" and "chrome" thing... Google wants every website you visit to be via https.
Not a bad goal... essentially, "one day", the FRF will switch over to SSL. Right now, they are not using SSL or https. It's not a big deal. If I try to access the forum via https it just redirects me back to http.
