Site not secured. UPDATE Now SECURED (July 18, 2018)

Post#1 by tim » 31 May 2018, 04:17


Now this site isn't secured (similar to gimpchat.com).
You have to add an exception in your browser to go to this site now.

What happened was I had an SSL certificate on ehost.com then they changed to justhost.com and they migrated me and now they say if I want secured I have to purchase dedicated IP, which I am unwilling to spend right now.

So, if you're worried about the site not being secured just make sure you use a different password for this forum. that way if some third party listens to your logging in on this site they won't be able to use your password for your other accounts. Although I don't even know how third-party listens to your traffic, that's beyond my knowledge.

Interesting ... MS EDGE seems to refuse to go to this site now, popping up all sorts of warnings. Google Chrome works first time.

OMG - likely the HTTPS prefix on the gimplearn.net was saved in your MS EDGE,
MS EDGE would autocorrect and use the HTTPS prefix and you would receive the
"There is a problem with this website’s security certificate" error messages.
You could watch closely and try HTTP:\\www.gimplearn.net to be certain
HTTPS:\\www.gimplearn.net is not being sent.

I can't get site to open on auto multi-page start up (Gimp Chat does though), opens fine with chrome although lost autofill user name and password. More importantly top banners don't show.

RJKD, look at your 'auto' multi-page start up address line
It probably has the HTTPS prefix saved, since that was what worked yesterday.
It needs to be resaved with HTTP prefix (gotta take the S out)

Same with my Chrome browser, no banners and a few of the links are missing as well.
Also, there's extremely long load time for the site.

Couldn't reach the forum because a warning the site was not secured.So added an exception for Gimp Learn in FF.
Even typing the site manually (not trough my favorites) i get a warning in Internet Explorer and Edge.
Why don't i get a warning on Gimp Chat?

because GIMPLEARN was designed to goto https originally so they warn you I think because it's no longer secured like https should..where gimpchat was always http://

At least I think that's the problem.

After I changed my shortcut and favorite to the non-secured http:// prefix I have had no problems with loading...

I guess I haven't noticed a long load time, but there was a delay when my shortcut was https://

The banner doesn't show (when logged in or not) -- when logged in the 90x170 image shows (but not the banner), when not logged in the 90x170 doesn't show (and not the banner)

In either case the 2 search boxes are there...
