    ok, took a bit longer than I thought...but all connections to the forums should now default to use https..and thus our forums are secure!

    as mentioned above, if you encounter anything wonky...please post (and if you cant post, email me at tug@tug2.net)

    Thanks Brian! I never would've noticed it if you didn't point it out. All's well.

    yea if we do it right...nothing at all should change as far as the end user is concerned!

    however google started penalizing sites that did not do this in search result rankings...and also with the browser warnings in chrome. thankfully it wasnt all that big of a deal to reconfigure the forum!

    Never let it be said that Tug is not up-to-date. Thanks, Brian!

    Glad to see this :thumbup:.

    I would also recommend enabling Image Proxy in XF to avoid mixed content warnings:

    Convert Image XF Add-on (and Convert Image All for existing posts) also are good for avoiding mixed content warnings since they convert all hotlinked images to Attachments and avoid broken image links down the road. You'll still need to proxy images since you'll have a handful of http images in people's signatures.
