Over the next few weeks, I hope to change the forum from http to https. There are many good reasons for this, you can Google for those yourself, but the main reasons I want to do it are:
1. More secure & potentially faster
2. No more annoying warnings about the page not being secure
3. Will improve ranking in Google, so may lead to more people finding our forum

How will it impact you?
There should be no impact at all to our members, most won't even notice the difference, and you won't need to do anything. Once it's in place, http://ooakforum.com will automatically redirect to https://ooakforum.com, and everything will look the same.

How will it be done?
There are quite a few steps involved for the changeover. The forum has been around for almost 12 years, and many posts, pictures, videos, etc have http links that need to be converted to https. I'll need to try different methods to do this as doing it manually is obviously out of the question. Youtube videos for example have all had http prefixes, and they'll need to change to https. Some pictures/videos may stop working (and some may actually start working again!), but the great majority are already served via https, so they should not be affected.

If there's anyone here who can offer their expertise in this area, I'd love to hear from you, as I'm far from an IT expert.

As usual, if you notice something not working on the forum, please post in this thread or send me a message.

It would use AutoSSL.

For those of you that want to try, https is already working. Just change your bookmark link of this site from http://ooakforum.com to https://ooakforum.com

Funny that now that I'm in the process of changing the site to http, I'm getting some queries as to why people's browser are saying that the site is not secure!

For those that are not aware, the site is as secure as it's always been, it's just that browser now give warning when the site does not run under https.
The forum will soon automatically redirect to https, so it's no longer an issue.

As I mentioned before, if the warnings bother you, just access the site (and update your bookmarks) via https://ooakforum.com and the warnings should be gone.
