Thank you, it works brilliantly
Even duct tape can’t fix stupid… but it can muffle the sound

No issue here since the little padlock appeared at the top of my browser  :thumbs:

Fresh tab, page openend, logged on - green padlock, but jumps to partially secured when going to "View the most recent posts on the forum." and also when opening a thread.

When replying (typing message) - green padlock

i think you'll find the "partially secured" is because "images not secure."  No problem.

All nice, but I'm wondering... WHO is posting and reading WHAT, that I cannot see, that they would want to be securely encrypted?

The forum seems to be public access - no log-in required to see posts, so what exactly is being protected? Naughty PMs?
