Jobu's SECURE Forums

The host I use for these forums has been kind enough to enable SSL support for all hosted domains. This means that you can now browse the forums with an encrypted connection, in case you're the ultra-paranoid type that wants to keep your shit-talking confidential so that nobody can alter it between your computer and this site. Just go to https://abstract-thought.com/ (note the 's' in the http area) and you're stickin' it to the man!

Edit: Just tweaked things so that the redirect to SSL occurs automatically even if you don't specify the 's' in your URL. So now you're stickin' it to the man whether you like it or not!

Cool!

And I verified the "S" is automatically loaded because I didn't know about it and...it's there :!: <mind blown> :o

I just got that email yesterday. Sigh. I only have uh... I don't remember how many domains to implement it on. I'll probably be lazy and won't do it, but I appreciate that you did. ;)

I didn't know what you were talking about at first, since all my bookmarks/history specifically use the secure protocol (which still works fine for me). But then I just tried going to the normal http:// address and sure enough, it didn't automatically redirect. Any idea when this stopped working? I didn't realize it ever broke.

This isn't a board setting, it's something I'll have to tweak on my web host's end. I'll double-check the host settings later today.

Just so I'm clear, the secure protocol still works for you if you go to https://abstract-thought.com - true?

Edit: Just made some changes on the host end, auto-redirect seems to work again. Does it work for you?

I think it was only like that for a little while, like maybe a week or something.

Yes, the secure protocol works using the https

Yes, I am now auto directed to the secure site. All is well.
