Web site work

Postby HughSpencer » Mon Jun 03, 2013 9:11 pm

Some of you might notice that the site is available via https. I bought a Comodo certificate that covers www.bodgers.org.uk and bodgers.org.uk. While it isn't completely set up as it should be, most of the site is encrypted. While we don't sell directly on line I think it is worth the added protection it gives you when browsing.
I still need to update this forum to the latest and greatest, rework to match the new look site on the forum and the gallery and modify a few things. While the main site works well on a mobile, it may prove harder to do the forum and gallery.

If anyone has problems with the site email me hugh (at) linx.net and I'll try to respond - although work has to come first of course.

Fantastic job! The bodgers site looks perfect on the evil iPhone. How about tapatalk for the forum?

Good idea (https).

Problem: I am no longer logged in automatically when I click on my browser short-cut, despite checking the "Log me on automatically each visit". I'm often logged out too.

Solution: Login and then create a new link to that (https-prefixed) page. Delete the old short-cut(s).

Thanks Tonewood,
I figured folks would look in their saved passwords on their browser and find the password. Once entered and told to save pssword for https as well its no problem.
Now all I have to do is why the gallery does not give me a padlock symbol as I've removed all http calls that were in the adverts and it does not show what its failing on... grinds teeth!

Roger, I'll investigate your suggestion for the display on iphones etc..

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/internet_explorer_password.html might help.
I haven't used IE in the last ten years. Banned its use at work as a security measure.

You mentioned the gallery. Nice though it is, it does not give a very dynamic look - two photos from the 2013 Bodger's ball are all we have to show for the years since 2008 ?

I still have to log in each time I come on here, I am on google chrome on one computer and IE on another- how can I fix it- the explanations above mean nothing to me.

Nic - I found this too and realised that it was because I was using my old tab, before the Change, to access the forum. So sign in and click "save password" then save the url as a NEW tab and get rid of the OLD one. Hope this makes sense and works for you.

Sorry, it actually says "Log me on automatically each visit" with a checkbox beside it...

To avoid having to continually login, you need to convert or replace your old http-links/short-cuts/favourites/desktop short-cuts/etc. to use https instead. For those having to login each time, check the URL/link that appears near the top of your browser when you first arrive at this website & before you login: does it start with http, rather than https (with the padlock symbol)? I still encounter this sometimes when I click on a link in my browser-generated summary page, because it shows links that I have used most often in the past, which are now out-of-date for this forum.

Would be nice if forum worked with tapatalk, following a number of boards is much easier with a single app..
