Both work for me, though https is slower and won't embed videos.  And I recall from when I used it before here that it tended to throw off error messages (I can't remember what they said) in threads heavy with upload links.


But I have a more basic question, as I am not quite sure what "forcing" https means.  Some of us have  tons of links in our posts to other threads on site and the Wiki, using http addresses.  What would forcing https do to these links?

Have you tried redoing the IP numbers from your smartphone using HTTPS, HybridHalf?

I have no fucking clue how to do that. Not everyone is well versed in code like that.

Anyway, I turned off and restarted my smartphone and it works now.

HTTPs is like two seconds slower. But they both work just fine from my phone.

Works well enough. And I think it's a good thing if you can force HTTPS redirects for everyone across the board. That will make session hijacking ŕ la Firesheep harder to do.

HTTPS works fine for me, too.

I fear that the NSA is capable of doing something like man-in-the-middle on your connection if they want to, though. But it helps protect from 'lesser' threats.

They both work for me and I have no preference but http is blocked at work but I can get in via https in my lunchbreak so that's useful. I'd ask that https continue to be supported please.

If the NSA want to read my smutty RPs they are more than welcome, nothing illegal going on here!

New youtube links will embed, old ones won't unfortunately.

Forcing means auto-redirecting to the https version of the site. Eventually I'll probably script through and make all links https.

So does that mean that that our current http links to other locations on site would work under https, or not?

Working fine here, and with valid certs - most people wouldn't notice any difference unless they are power users.

Think of everyone using internet banking :)

My own personal stuff uses self-signed so thats where people would notice, but that doesnt bother the expected user (namely me)

Have had some people have issues. I'm probably going to want to make some conversion scripts - for signatures at least.
