    Insecure Connection?

    Hi,

    Is any one else seeing the icon of a padlock with a diagonal red line through it, saying "Connection is not secure" when it is interrogated, in the address bar of their browser when accessing the forum?


    I am using Windows 10 and Firefox.

    Appreciate any feedback as having problems trying to post and my router keeps blocking this site - everything else fine!

    Pretty sure it is because this is one of the few sites that doesn't use SSL by default to give you a https:// browsing experience, hence all traffic between you and the server is in plain text.

    I think you're correct. If you use Chrome it also says the site isn't secure. i.e. http rather than https.

    “Not Secure - cobraclub.com” is the top of each page when I look at the site. I did wonder if it was ok.

    Many thanks for the replies. One of those things I had never noticed until I had problems and started looking!

    Putting aside the "Connection is not secure" issue, is any one else having problems when trying to respond to a thread and include pictures from and external site. I am using Imgur and hve done so on previous posts without problem but it is now resulting in the dreaded 404 error!!

    Thanks again,
