Default SSL Certificate Installation (https:// Encryption)

We are in the process of installing SSL technology on Smokstak and Enginads. There are a few bugs to work out, but apparently nothing too serious.

Default Smokstak going encrypted

Congratulations on adding HTTPS secure connections to the Smokstak forum! The browser is complaining about mixed content, but I'm sure that can be cleared up soon.

I have IE 11. Sometimes things will flash on and off and I can't get anywhere. Only way I could reply was to use quick reply.

A whole bunch of refinements were needed, especially with links. There are a lot more of them yet to take care of.

The remaining problem is "mixed content" upsetting the browsers. They have gotten rather snarky in the past year in an attempt to beat down the scam artists. It's a real PITA for me, knowing when to use https: or http: to link internal graphic images.

Over all, I hope this is an improvement and not a big excursion down a rabbit hole! At least I have the GREEN LOCK on my administrative control panel.

I've been testing on Firefox 49.0.1 and IE11.

I got on the stak today 9/30/16, and the Current topics and photos on the ads won't come up. Library is using windows professional (7 I think) and has their own protection that does not let certain functions to operate. Stak problem or mine?
