PV, any particular reason your using http over https? I know we don’t discuss any real sensitive subjects on our forums but all out traffic is open for any ISP being used or any one else who’d be bothered to put a packet sniffer on us.

It would take some back end work to change it and some links may be broken in the process. It’s something I have to discuss further with the host, but it’s not a flip the switch.

Oh I know. Web security is something I do for a living. You should ask your host if the coming update to Chrome, which removes SHA-1 encryption from support, will have an impact on you.

Looks fine. I checked it on safari, chrome, Firefox and DuckDuckGo. Security rating is B+ when I run it through an analyzer. That’s a very high rating.

We SHOULD be all set. If there's any issues, let me know.
I've been using https all day on my phone and on my macbook. I mostly use DuckDuckGo for my browser so I didn't check a whole lot on Chrome but it seems fine. Speed is still fine, links and URLs all seem fine to.
