I just installed an SSL/TLS cert for The Corner Forum. It all seems to work OK, but I'd appreciate it if you's have a look and let me know if you see any weirdness.

If there are no problems, I'll probably force https for everyone sometime next
Corner Forum - Now With https ! - ( New Window )
Seems to load faster

It works well in safari loads much faster. Good job. Thanks
You may want to force HTTPS always

Good for SEO juice
Steve in South Jersey : 9/5/2017 9:00 pm : link
I agree. Looks good.
Works fine here in FireFox.  
Vinny from Danbury : 9/5/2017 9:02 pm : link
Does seem faster too. But probably just a placebo. Hehe...
so far so good.

running ok.

Runs well so far, Gary

Maybe fractionally slower by my read; not by much (Chrome), but smooth.
Seems fine browsing around,

posting this from the https url using google chrome.
It does seem faster  
Gary from The East End : Admin : 9/5/2017 9:50 pm : link
Which doesn't make much sense.
all good in Chrome  
Jints in Carolina : 9/5/2017 10:10 pm : link
I agree, it is faster.
One minor glitch I have noticed  
11 to 89 : 9/5/2017 11:03 pm : link
Clicking a link using the "new window" link doesn't actually open up in a new window. Instead it opens the link in the current window forcing you to "go back" to return to the corner instead of just closing the linked page. I am using Firefox on a Mac if any of that info is useful.
wow - what a difference in load time  
gidiefor : Mod : 9/5/2017 11:25 pm : link
that's outstanding Gary
I do get these warnings from Firefox

Doesn't work  
trueblueinpw : 9/6/2017 12:53 am : link
I still can't figure out if the Ewok is playing week 1 or not.

Just kidding. So far so good.
Loads very quickly  
ATL_Giants : 9/6/2017 7:46 am : link
looking great. Thanks!
no problems  
TJ : 9/6/2017 8:25 am : link

Works for me.

Dallas sucks!!!
Screw Zeke and Jerry

This https site works fine.
All is well  
jpennyva : 9/6/2017 9:31 am : link
I have tried it on a couple devices - computer and tablet and everything is functioning fine so far.
Looks fine  
bigblue1124 : 9/6/2017 10:06 am : link
And much faster on Chrome FWIW
Although when I try to get to it from "outside" of BBI  
PatersonPlank : 9/6/2017 10:55 am : link
it comes up funny.
Seems okay  
Carson53 : 9/6/2017 12:43 pm : link
to me, I generally use Mozilla myself.
I didn't see any lack of speed.
One reason it is faster is due to less requests  
Scyber : 9/6/2017 12:51 pm : link
It looks like one file is loaded via http and chrome blocks it:

Not sure what that js is.

On the http site there are 29 network requests, and on the https site there are 25. I did not audit the requests to identify all of the differences.

If you update your server to HTTP2 (now that you are testing https support) you should see even more speed improvements.
Gary from The East End : Admin : 9/6/2017 1:20 pm : link
Looks like some of tracking scripts are being loaded over http:, so Chrome is filtering them out.

Maybe faster because  
Steve in South Jersey : 9/6/2017 1:30 pm : link
the heavy load of connections is still over on the other non https game?
Won't there be a problem when people load images  
Stan in LA : 9/6/2017 6:04 pm : link
That point to http? Won't that trigger insecure warnings?
Didn't notice any difference on chrome  
Mad Mike : 9/6/2017 7:00 pm : link
So far so good  
Matt M. : 9/7/2017 4:12 pm : link
What should the differences be (good or bad) using this protocol?
Definitely faster  
Reb8thVA : 9/7/2017 4:28 pm : link
On my IPad.
