Information about new secure connection protocol standards Https-11


Dear users,

Since 2016, Google has decided to accelerate the transition to a more secure web by imposing the HTTPS standard. This is a good thing for Internet users but is really complex to set up technically on big services like Forumotion ! Confused

Google Chrome will display an alert for HTTP pages


Note that since January 2017, Google Chrome browser (version 56) could display a security alert on HTTP pages including a "Password" field. This will be a discrete indication with "Not secure" message that will be displayed in the address bar. Here's what it will look like:

Information about new secure connection protocol standards Http-h10

How does this affect Forumotion Forums ?


On the discussion forums, members must log in by entering their username and password. This alert will not affect all HTTP pages, but only those that display a "password" field.

For Forumotion forums, this could typically occur on pages with a field asking to enter a password (Login widget, Quick login display, ...).

Don't be afraid, having this alert does not mean that your forum is not secure. This is a simple indication dictated by the new standards imposed by the use of a secure connection protocol between the web server that hosts your forum and your web browser.

The HTTPS protocol will be soon available for Forumotion Forums


Although there is no obligation to adopt this new protocol, the best solution, which will soon be available on all Forumotion forums, is to have the possibility to put the forum in HTTPS mode. In addition to providing a secure web space for your members, your forum will display a "Secure" message. Cool

Nevertheless, be aware that the complete transition of your forum in HTTPS mode will require some modifications in the templates. All resources (images, JS, CSS, external services, ...) must be called in HTTPS mode. Otherwise, the forum will not be considered secure.

In any way, we will provide you with more information on this as soon as all technical modifications are ready on our side.

Regards

Forumotion Staff

Hello @Flappypaddles

Yes this will take a long time to update our servers and data center.

We have not been gave a time frame on this matter but we will let you know when we have any news on this.

Bigger bugs need to be fixed first.

Use credits to purchase the SSL certificate, but you have to make sure that all images, third-party codes, etc. have secure links, too.

you are so welcome i also have a domain name and i have to hold on to but i like it that way right now i have a www. name and i want to keep the www. name but i know that HTTPS is better but I am also in no rush to get it.

Not sure how this is going to work with a domain name thou as we already pay for our domain name i see it strange we would have to pay more to have the HTTPS name if we already pay for the domain.

but yes we will have to see what they are going to do (I will not pay twice for something)

I am in the same boat as you, I have a www. as well my page is http://www.delaroseroleplay.com/ and I hope it does not change too much as I like my domain name.

Ya paying twice for something no way we already pay for the domain and for having no ads and other junk on our pages, it would be great if the SSL Certificate was included in your paying for your domain name. but i may be dreaming in color for hoping that.

I would be more then happy to pay a little more say like 50 or 60 credits if it was installed on my domain name already so instead of paying 1600 a year we pay 1660 or maybe total of 1700 but thats it i will not pay more then that.

oh i have just seen on my ACP that the system has been updated i now have the setting to change mine

Information about new secure connection protocol standards Captur65 can now order it if i want now but going to see if the price is lower when they work is done and out of beta mode.

it is 100% upto you.

I have left mine and will be making a thread on my site to tell members it's still safe to use my site.

I will also make ti so gusts can post in it so if there is any problems they can ask me anything they want.

I'm not going to rush in to but it's upto you if you want to or not.

I can't make your mind up for you and you can change your mind at any time in the ACP. but you will not get your money back if you remove it again.
