Hi,

I've installed an SSL certificate on the forum, please advise if you experience any inconsistent behavior.

Cheers,

now I can not open forum using Maxthon v4.4. browser on Windows XP:

Code: [Select]
Invalid certificate

This site's certificate has expired or has been issued for a different website's address.
This problem may indicate an attempt to intercept the data between you and remote server.
Please check whether the URL in the address bar is correct.

Error code 113 (net::ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH)

Maybe there a problem with embedded youtube videos. I only see the youtube links and not the embedded videos, e.g. in this thread https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=12761.0 .

It could be your browser version, requiring update. Or you can try this:

I'm guessing it wasn't working properly before, at least for youtube videos. I've changed the method I had working before. Though fewer auto-embed options are available (youtube, imgur/gifv or vimeo urls) I guess they should suffice.
 
Unfortunately I'm seeing that older links have now extra shortcodes that are blocking the auto embed feature to work, but it will work for newer additions.

I you find a thread that you think it's worth correcting, type it in below.

I see warning icons in the firefox address bar that "parts of this page are not secure" but it seems to be working fine. (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/mixed-content-blocking-firefox)
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Sorry, didn't see this reply. A couple of images were being hard-linked to http URLs, triggering mixed content warnings. Though I sorted it out in the meantime, it could happen with external content in the middle of the page.
