Hi,

 

Whenever I come to the forum the default is to use HTTP for login. This is less secure and I also get a flurry of drop down warnings in the login text fields. I end up manually clicking in the address bar and editing it to point at HTTPS every time I log in. It's not a big deal but is mildly annoying. However, more importantly it would be better for site security if it defaulted to HTTPS.

 

Any reason this isn't done?

Login information is submitted via HTTPS.

 

Ah. Looking into it more closely, I see that the form submits to a HTTPS URL. Not sure if you are aware of it but because the page itself is not HTTPS, Firefox is flagging up dire warnings on your site:

Anyway, it caused me to raise this. Don't know if helpful.

 

Peace and coolness,

He has a plugin/extension running which is not smart enough to pick up on the form's action (where it actually sends the data).

 

Of course the form is _pulled_ over HTTP -- it's a popup dialog/div within the site.  The main part is where it sends the data, which (as stated and verified) is over HTTPS.
