C-3PO is helping us lock down the site a bit more, so we don't get that, 'this site is not secure' error message!

..... and fix the missing Image upload button issue!   >:-o

I would imagine the image server should also be https -

Any embedded object (most commonly images) in a post that is not on a secure server or uses the http reference will cause the page to be reported as insecure.

Where a member has uploaded their own Avatar to the Mayhem forum it appears that the SMF script used to retreive that image uses http not https so the page is reported as insecure.

Martin has made progress and been able to secure the forum home page and menu pages - with regards to individual posts then where an http embedded object is used the post will report as insecure.

Spam Email warning!

Be on the Watch, there are some spoof emails seemingly coming from martin@modelboatmayhem.co.uk - I only send emails about model boat stuff... obviously! 😠

Some idiot Russian spammers are annoyed that they can't get onto Mayhem and post their crap... and they have really been trying this week! 🤬🤬

You can actually check if it from me by 'hovering' over any links that say modelboatmayhem.co.uk in the email or looking at the 'header'.
