SSL, anyone?
« on: December 11, 2016, 13:03:06 »

Did you know you can access dippy.org securely?


https://www.dippy.org/forum2/


If it is important to people, I can install a different certificate that won’t bring up warnings the first time (and ask you to trust a free authority).

I'm down for using SSL.


It wants me to log in each time and the page is just text and the background is white. Is that a bug or how it is supposed to be?

Sweet!

Chrome and Edge both trust the certificate authority BTW.

Seeing as the major browsers trust the CA, you consider redirecting HTTP to HTTPS?

HTTP vs HTTPS

Basically means the site is being delivered to you using encryption.

Like DOS v/s Basic?
My old Tandy only can handle so much.

I never get pop ups here and it's one of the easiest site to load when my net has crap speed.
Apparently being on cable and being a corner house, I'm last on the line, so if everyone is sucking up data, I get farked and frustrated with 56k warning with todays internet.

When I first got internet, I never used 10GB and did a lot of EBay.
Now I use 20 to just under 25GB and seem to do less than I did.
I realize videos suck the data, but all those ads on MSN/Yahoo and even Moparts suck data. :rant:

We don’t have popups, we rely mostly on generosity / subscriptions. This is also a relatively efficient forum system, I think - especially after using the spaghetti code of Invisionboard.

We do have SSL now - optional, if you type https://www.dippy.org/forum2 rather than http://...  just wanted to see if it was working. It's possible I already bought a “real” certificate but I didn't think I had.


I have no idea what the black-on-white thing is, sounds like a bad browser cache, can you try using a different system or browser and see if it still happens?


Based on the feedback so far, I'm thinking we keep it optional.  I'm always open to argument, though. It's not like it’ll mess with the (nonexistent) ads.
