Hmm... if I manually go to https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp? then I get redirected back to HTTP. Safari 10.0.1, and the esoteric NetSurf 3.6 (the Win XP comment above prompted me to try it tongue-out).

 

Edit: Missed the "for a few minutes". As you were.

I'm logged in, Firefox beta on Win10, and get redirected to http.

toyonut:

 

I see that for a number of pages, such as login pages, Geekzone has https enabled. Now that Chrome and Firefox are applying stricter controls to pages, is Geekzone going to go full https? I thought I had seen somewhere I could use https, but https://www.geekzone.co.nz just redirects back to http.

 

This is Firefox 51 just updated today. Chrome 56 is still giving the grey circle of indifference.

 

Google and now Firefox are apparently going to get tougher on this quickly. https://security.googleblog.com/2016/09/moving-towards-more-secure-web.html.

 

I am sure I read somewhere that by mid 2017, all http pages, not just login and payment pages, were going to be marked insecure. I have not been able to find that reference again though.

 

If the site is hosted in IIS, URL_Rewrite is a quick and pretty effective tool to redirect all links to https.

 

 

You might want to check again as Geekzone is now fully served over HTTPS.
