Google is about to force all websites to start using SSL (https/ the green padlock) on sites or else get flagged as insecure in Chrome 56 which is releasing soon.

 

As such, we have deployed the SSL on this old software.  This is going to cause broken issues in various places because of mixed content.  We are working to address these issues as quickly as we can.

 

Please have patience as we work through this Google-induced mess.

In the beginning Google was a sweet and benevolent search engine ... they sat on big balls and brought their doggies to work ... and they sent their creeping (y) vines out quietly.. until now they want to rule the world!!!

But I like chrome, and at least they announced it.

We've had to disable chat at this time.  There isn't a solution on this version of IP.Board.

Hey folks, thanks for all your work on this. I know software incompatibility is a pain on the butt.

 

Chat is such a great feature of the site, I hope you can find or create a solution soon.

Is this the reason why none of my notification links from before this topic was posted work? All the ones after work, but if I try the ones from before 12 midnight my time all I get is a Sorry, we couldn't find that! message.

I assume so. My link into GA on my bookmarks bar also gave me that message, and I had a split second worry that my profile had vanished into space.

Ahh, I didn't get that problem, because I always type the url - can't have 'naughty' bookmarks on my work laptop. :*)

LOL And we're all so naughty...!

Thank you, AJ, Myr and all others (?) who work so tirelessly for GA and us!

So... I got this lovely message not too long ago:

 

FATAL ERROR

Your settings could not be read by IP.Board. This is a fatal error and IP.Board cannot function while this issue persists.

 

This issue is generally caused by changing your character set in the ACP to one that does not support data stored in the rest of your settings or by restoring a database/backup/completing a server transfer and importing your database tables using the wrong character set or collation. You should contact IPS Technical Support for further assistance. 

 

Thankfully, it was only Soap Opera fatal and rectified its own self somehow as I have access to GA once again. Could this have been a result of the changeover? I'm hoping I never see it again...

There was a software issue that was quickly corrected.

If you have embedded links in your blogs, you may need to change the protocol from http:// to https:// 

I did so in my blog and the links work again.

 

Oh, wait - this may just be me, since I'm still using IE. :*) Probably there's no problem with newer browsers.

Please stop using IE.  There are plenty of free alternatives of modern browsers.

I know - old habits die hard. :*)

 

OK, I've switched to Chrome now. Takes a bit of time to get used to, but it should end my problems and prevent me from asking any more silly tech questions. :lol:
