    struggled to log in tonight Muz ..... I usually let the 'puter do its stuff and log in on auto pilot, but it demanded a manual log in.
    fortuuuunately I could remember me password (unusually) and got in on the second attempt

    I assume that that is all to do with said HTTPS stuff??

    oh... and I did have a green padlock showing..... but that's ****ed off now and sod all showing
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    Stock .. funny that ? To test my theory, I removed your post to the Admin test area, and the green padlock came back on this thread , Ive since returned your post here and the Yellow padlock has re appeared so it must have something to do with your post .. probably a link off the forum to the pic which is seen as weakened security I guess ? Actually its called 'mixed content' if you google it, in actual fact the padlock is still there, its just turned yellow with advisory detail attached. Druids epic 'Druiding' thread is the same .. I'll have a look into it .. Off the cuff I think it means any external links that dont have the https in the address and only http will throw up the yellow padlock and I'm fooked if I'm going through them one by one .. I think job merits a ....

    Right so Ive implemented a mod to try to allow all old attchments to show, but it slowed the forum down, I'm not sure if I implemented it correctly, so Ive fixed it amd re enabled it ... everything seems to be ok at the moment
