Set up HTTPS redirects?
« on: July 04, 2019, 05:22:37 AM »
I've noticed that some of the hyperlinks on the site drop me back to plaintext HTTP even if the page I was on was via HTTPS.  I am able to work around this by manually changing the URL in my browser's address bar back to HTTPS, but may I request that HTTP-to-HTTPS redirects be set for the site?  Whatever web server you're using, it should be pretty easy to just set up a global redirect rule so that any request via HTTP gets redirected to the same URL but via HTTPS.

@RopeNRoughness We use SimpleMachines Forums, and many, many independently-written mods. @Addie is our admin who purportedly understands that shite. I am a fuckwit wot does not. I've tagged @Addie hoping she'll know wot you're on about and will sort the redirects. Thanks very much for your suggestion!

@RopeNRoughness @RayPistonprowl We can't use https:// directs because we are on a shared server. The few https:// directs we have are courtesy of modifications to SMF that we haven't figured out how to change yet. We will eventually direct them all to plain http:// directs. You will notice, for instance, that from email/PMs when you click a link that goes to protected sections of the board (that aren't available to all members), it will say 'https://' and the chat room at the top will appear empty when it really isn't. Removing the "s" from 'https://' solves that problem.

@Carlosdevil @darkfantasygirl It looks like our host did some updates recently that have affected our forum. I found a ton of server errors that we normally don't see. I'll fix what I can over the next week and address this with our host. It appears in particular to be affecting mobile versions of the site. :/
