Forum Should Use Secure HTTP (HTTPS)

Post by Patrick Dark on Mon Sep 18, 2017 5:31 am

Is it just me or is it weird that the forum—which requires log‐in credentials—is the only part of the Codec Guide website that isn’t served over a secure connection? Mozilla Firefox is giving me a security warning under the password field when I try to sign in to this forum.

Please fix.

They're on forumotion's servers, an ancient free forum provider. It's not so hard to get a free HTTPS certificate anymore(Let's Encrypt), but i doubt Forumotion cares.

I was able to find this information from Forumotion pretty quickly: http://help.forumotion.com/t1219-credits-management. It’s a paid option for "500 Credits".

(I note that Forumotion has the same problem as Codec Guide; its homepage is encrypted, but the part of the site that actually needs encryption—its support forum—is not. I think that’s a bizarre way to approach security.)

One could just move things to GitHub and get a forum of sorts for free with less hassle for users that already have a GitHub account...

Current forum won't get https. Moving to another one means all current accounts become useless. Will probably be done eventually, but not real soon.
