Title: Security certificates
Post by: Paul on May 27, 2019, 11:40:53 AM
I have now installed security certificates for this site. What this does is it encrypts information between your computer and retro-link.com. Previously, things like your password here or even messages posted in non-public areas of the site could potentially have been seen by a 3rd party. You may have seen such warnings from your browser. To utilize these new certificates, make sure to access this site through https:// instead of http://. Thus, this site would be https://retro-link.com/smf/. Since I haven't had the time to go through all parts of this site and change all the addresses, some parts, like graphical images, may still be delivered using http without encryption. I don't consider this a big deal, as the important stuff will be encrypted.

     It still seems that the majority of the site is still insecure.  You can go to the new https://forum.retro-link.com, but when you go to the log-in page, that is insecure, and then after log-in, the rest of the forum is insecure.

Hi, Robert. In reality, the forums exist at https://retro-link.com/smf. If you go to forum.retro-link.com, there is no certificate, and you may get weird errors in your browser as you navigate. However, if you stick with https://retro-link.com/smf, you shouldn't experience those problems. Hopefully I will one day have the time to perform a successful upgrade and migration of the forums to eliminate all issues.
