The Den is now SSL-compliant
« on: September 29, 2017, 08:21:46 AM »
We will be changing the Den over from http to https today in order to be SSL-compliant.

It's a necessity these days to remain relevant and still show up in search results. Just the direction the net is going. It also may put new potential members at ease that this is a safe site. Always has been.. always will be.. will be more obvious now.

If you run into any issues please post here. Might take a little time to sort it out and you may see the site flicker a bit during the transition.. Don't panic all will be well shortly.

my problems are never simple and not easy rectifiable,   cant get kodi to work on my laptop,  it works for a couple of days and then just stops,   pretty much like all the friggin stuff on my laptop lately,   think something is playing tricks on me.


i'm not a novice when it comes to finding a workable solution for computer issues,   maybe my head aint in the right place at the moment and my patience tolerance is very low  {W}


would be nice if things would just continue working without stopping for no friggin reason   #@#

Seamless switchover for me. "HTTPS" just appeared in the address box (Chrome on Mac - fully updated).

EDIT: but see my next post

Same here - at least the one I tried. https://www.thevapersden.com/index.php/topic,12768.0/topicseen.html shows a big blank space with the Youtube URL beneath.

I can see that video as well as the one I linked earlier. You seem to have fixed it.

Yeah was an issue with the upgrade and completely my fault.  :{

This event though has nothing to do with the previous Firefox issues of pictures and videos not displaying in posts. That issue may still be an issue for some from time to time. In this case it affected all browsers.

When I have problems with images/videos, it is usually due to my blocking software - such as NoScript and Request Policy. Once I allow the relevant blocked site, it works fine.

I don't update Firefox until the release has been around for 3 months or so - so they usually have the release bugs worked out by the time I update my machine.

Right now, everything is working fine with Utube videos. All I have to do is click on the "right pointing triangle" in the box and the video runs.

Nice to see the upgrade to HTTPS. I used to use an add-on called "HTTPS Everywhere", but I think no Firefox automatically forces a secure connection whenever possible.

Yeah, running Privacy Badger (from eff.org - Electronic Frontier Foundation - fighting for your digital rights since 1990) and Ad Blocker can break some sites.

I usually try to encourage some sort of ad-less subscription option if it's a site I'm really interested in. If they can't do that, I just (sometimes regretfully) block them from my browsers (to avoid being sucked in by a link from some other site).
