No https on the forum ?

I can't use https here. @shark maybe use letsencrypt free ssl ?

Sidenote: I hope that forum engine is up to date.

Sorry, I don't understand, I'm not a computer technician. Why do you want to use https?

http://www.the-new-lagoon.com - current
https://www.the-new-lagoon.com - encrypted - it does not work.

So our passwords etc. are plaintext. It is common, modern technique to use HTTPS everywhere :)

https://letsencrypt.org/ - free certificates. Some hosting companies (like OVH) offer automatic installation. Forum engine may need some changes in config though.

PS. Consider implementing service like couldflare, it has numerous advantages, like ddos protection, free ssl certs etc.

Any word on making your forum more secure Shark by implementing what CobraPL suggested?, just curious as it would make the forum way less prone to hacking like the last time all the good stuff was lost on it.
