    I took some hours of my time tonight and fully updated the forum to use HTTPS!

    If you don't know what is HTTPS and you want to have an idea, it basically makes the connection between the forum and your browser encrypted. It's a security measure that's pretty common for websites to use, you can see it in almost all your favorite websites. If you want to know more about HTTPS, please head over to its wiki page.

    One change that you will see automatically is that all the pages of the forum now begin with https instead of http. However, some images around the forum may start with http, like images from the popular image host Imgur. If you, for example, make posts with links from there, start the link with https instead of http, Imgur lets you use HTTPS for its images. You can also make this change in your profile's cover image and signature. All broken images from our forum, Imgur or any other image host that supports HTTPS (note: not all image hosts support it, but Imgur is without any doubt what we use more around the forum and they totally do) that are using http should be changed as well.

    Sorry if that is confusing. Right now you need to know that there is one more letter in the forum links! :P Also, I hope everyone here feels safer in the community knowing that we take your security seriously.

    I will still be doing some changes here and there in this system. Please report any bug here!

    Owl,
    The OPF Team.

    I will never not be impressed that our forum admin is doing so much for this website out of his own time and effort.

    Change your favicon.ico url to HTTPS, then all of OPForum's pages will be fully recognized as a secure website by a browser. If you want more security, I suggest you start using CloudFlare and familiarize yourself with it.

    On a side note, if you did pay for the SSL, well it's a waste of money. There's a free SSL called Let's Encrypt that is recognized by all browsers as a valid certificate authority. Still, great changes. Will help in SEO by a good margin :)

    Hey, guys. No problem! Thank you everyone for the compliments! :P We were secure the whole time, don't worry. It's just that we are now more. This is more of a security measure for you than for us.

    Thank you for the kind words. When you do something that you like, you will do it happily. Although I have to admit one thing to you, I didn't know it would take so much time (I never did something like this, so there's that), and I did it kind of late in the night and had to wake somewhat early. Probably not my best decision, but now the deed is done! :P

    Thank you for the suggestion. Already used Cloudflare in the past. Right now we are fine without it, but I don't throw away the possibility of using it again. I'll see that about the favicon.

    I understand that. But in this particular case, I'd rather pay for something I know it works really well and is widely used by popular websites. It's about stability. I don't like to be in doubt. Also, even though I paid for it, it wasn't that much, it's the the anual fee of a domain.

    Indeed! Let's see how our SEO is going to be affected, hopefully Google will give us a nice boost. :)

    Amazing!

    Never had a problem security-wise, but OPF now feels more reliable now that you mention it.

    It has been one year. I've just renewed and updated this service in our forum. Everything should be working fine, but if anyone's having any problem browsing due to security warnings, please report it here. It might have not been updated yet in your end.
