For test purposes I put a certificate and enabled HTTPS on Dyxum so you can try using it (just change the address to https and enjoy).

Please note: I have not yet created any redirections or URL rewrites so some things will still be broken, e.g. if somebody used a link in a post (using [URL] BB-codes) and placed http:// then browser will switch to HTTP instead of HTTPS. This concerns all BB-code links to other posts or threads or subforums. Good example is any of the Themed Views index pages (e.g. Themed Views Index.

PLEASE DO NOT REPORT SUCH THINGS AS ERRORS - this is normal and will be resolved when the time comes.

Having said that, if you encounter any other problems, like "mixed content" warnings (i.e. "some elements on this page are not secure") or lack of HTTPS after clicking any link that is not "user-driven (like the ones in BB-codes) then please report it either by PM to me, or by sending an e-mail to admins (see the link at the bottom of the page) or just reply in this thread.

EDITED
When reporting issue please:
1) Describe the problem, i.e. what the symptom is (screenshots?),
2) Provide steps to reproduce, e.g. "I was on a page (provide url) and I clicked that link/button/picture/thingamajig and then THIS happened
3) Provide the info about the browser which was used,

Ray, be careful ATM - it is easy to jump out of HTTPS! For example: I've just realised that links in notification e-mails sent by Dyxum are not https ...

Anyways, I want a few days of "clicking through" before I enable it fully.

One more effect: all photos on Dyxum are hot-linked, which means that we have no influence on their URLs. If those URLs are HTTP not HTTPS then probably there is nothing we can do about it - the warning about mixed content is probably unavoidable.

Now the redirect was added and Dyxum seems to keep working as usual If it collapses overnight - deal with it

Well done, MiPr - not sure how much work was involved but that you've done it and the effect seems to be seamless is a great reflection on you and your resolve.

From Flickr at least, the images appear to originate from an https link so for those subscribers I assume we are okay.

Thanks again and best regards, Neil.
