    SJ, you might want to implement certificates using Lets Encrypt. They’re free.

    You can use the secure version of the site if you like, it has always been secured by SSL I just don't force it for the forums as it is not really a security risk. I can do so, but there is a small performance hit.

    Yes I see that there is a chance our login is not secure, but what if "The man in the middle" gets our password? I can not see that they would do us much harm, and yes they would be able to post to the forum in our name. Am I not wrong that either of these cases are an easy cleanup?
    It is not like they are getting into personal data.

    Hmmm. I just tries the "secure" (https://www. etc) version, and it looks like the old mailing lists from 20 years ago... Am I doing something wrong?

    No, you are getting a mix of both that causes that I’ll see if I can get it switched over, but vbulletin is not the best at ssl.
