Important Security Info

Great News!
We are happy to announce we are improving security across our network and adding Secure Sockets Layer or SSL to the site. This means going forward you'll see Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS); the secure version of HTTP, the protocol used to send data between your browser and the website that you are connected to. This means all communications between your browser and the website will have another layer of encryption. We take the security of your data seriously so updates like this do happen from time to time. There is no downtime or major issues anticipated in this change. If you do notice anything about the site operating not as it should please make sure we are the first to know. You can send a PM to this account with details and we can investigate. Thanks, and if you have any questions about this let me know.
-Your Admin Team

Re: Important Security Info

Does this mean there's going to be future site outages when the certificate issuer screws up (which they will)?

Re: Important Security Info

Thanks! Any chance to redirect all http calls to https via .htaccess?

Re: Important Security Info

Knock on wood on no site downs cause of this

Once we have it configured right, all http links should auto direct to https. Still getting it right. Email system is still sending out links without SSL. It's a work in progress
