TLS (HTTPS) connectivity now live!

This morning, I noticed that the link I pasted into the forum for a news article was HTTPS. Turns out that at some point The Techno Elves have enabled TLS encryption on the site - huzzah!

Better still, it works for the forum: just stick HTTPS at the front and enjoy secure, encrypted connectivity.

There's no manual redirect for the forums at the moment, so you'll have to do it manually, but it's most assuredly progress!

Two scripts do not load though - NcodeImageResizer and tapatalkdetect. Thus no automatic image resize.

Those'd probably be why it's not official and/or default yet. Still: progress!

^Not because of what your thread was about, more a post in that thread (or rather an image in a post in that thread). And no, not what you are thinking of, not that kind of image

I'm really intrigued now couldn't a mod have just deleted the post or edited it?
