Default Important Security Update

Great News!

We are happy to announce we are improving security across our network and adding Secure Sockets Layer or SSL to the site. This means going forward you'll see Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS); the secure version of HTTP, the protocol used to send data between your browser and the website that you are connected to. This means all communications between your browser and the website will have another layer of encryption. We take the security of your data seriously so updates like this do happen from time to time. There is no downtime or major issues anticipated in this change. If you do notice anything about the site operating not as it should please make sure we are the first to know. You can send a PM to this account with details and we can investigate. Thanks, and if you have any questions about this let me know.

Apparently it has also screwed up pictures uploaded from the Tapatalk app, which is what I've done since becoming a member here.

Will this be fixed soon as I'm not having this issue on any other form, including WUS, which I understand is owned by the same company as WF.

Hey there,

Can you link me a thread with this issue?
I'll look into it. Are you getting a forbidden error?
Or are the photos posted as links?

It must have been just a Tapatalk issue I guess. The thread where this was brought to my attention I can see pictures from both Tapatalk and website today.

David, this was sorted when the Active Topics issue was rectified, shortly after I brought this to your attention.
