Security warning on clicking any page
« on: 08.01.2012, 23:15:39 »

Greetings, I seem to be getting a security warning on every page I try and navigate to on the EF forums. It says

'Do you want to only view the webpage content that was delivered securely?

This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage.'

I'm using Windows XP and IE8.

Interesting concept of "content", the only non-SSL element referenced is the Twitter button...  m(

Which is an external graphics and won't cause any forum specific information being transmitted. You won't have much fun on SSL accessed pages with browser settings that strict.

(Cheetah, can we host that stupid button graphics locally instead?)

The only reason I mention it is that this happens on only the EF forums. The main site is fine and all other web pages display correctly and without issue.

Oddly, even if I click 'no', the 'Follow us on twitter' button displays correctly and without a little red x.

I've changed the twitter button to https:// ... the warnings should hopefully be gone now :)

Yes indeed! Thank you very much, it might only be a small niggle, but now it's gone :)
