This is what Firefox says:

It might be associated with the software update we did recently.  Am investigating.  I can assure you that having gone in and checked with the hosting company everything was shoeing ok on the security side.  That said, am still investigating.

Sorted - if people make sure they are linked to https://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php instead of http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php it works.

Which url do you guys have bookmarked:
http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php

or

https://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php

If you're not using the one that begins https, then you'll get the "not secure" message regardless
of browser and it doesn't actually mean the site is "insecure", it's that the connection between
your device and the site is in the open. Edit the address on your bookmark by adding an s.

So, to recap, the difference between HTTP vs HTTPS is simply the presence of an SSL (secure sockets
layer) certificate. HTTP doesn’t have SSL and HTTPS has SSL, which encrypts your information so your
connections are secured. HTTPS also has TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocol that HTTP lacks. HTTPS
is more secure than HTTP.

I'm assuming I had the http but I now, definitely, have the https bookmarked.

For the last few days the site has been very slow for me, and yesterday it bogged down until nothing was happening.  Then during the evening it seemed work properly. But this morning the same thing is has happened, eventually going so slow it was taking minutes to open a page.

Any ideas ?

EDIT: and now it seems to be working normally again.

No answers, but I've had exactly the same behaviour, but I've also been getting timeout errors, and the 'Down for Everyone or Just Me' site


https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/


was reporting that the Forum was down . . .

A weird one just happened . . . when writing a post, I inserted some emojis in the middle of sentences. All the text in the sentence following where the emoji was placed was immediately reduced in size to the smallest size allowed. I could resize things back to normal, but when posted, the resize control codes were showing, so that I had to further edit the post to remove them . . .
Here is an example :-'When I insert an emoji.  :o [size=78%] the following text is reduced . . .[/size]

When I resize it, the control codes are visible.'[size=78%]

We need one of those Social Credit *like* buttons*, so Beijing-style approval can be given for all the wonderful inspiration that's shared here.


I get tired thinking up new ways to compliment all of y'all.
