Discuss Now Running HTTPS Instead of HTTP in the Plumbing Forum area at

    I just have a few more tweaks to do, but we're now running on HTTPS instead of HTTP. Which is more secure and prevents the likes of 'man in the middle' attacks when you're out and about browsing our forums.

    Note that we also allow two-step verification for logging in too. So that you get notified if somebody else tries to login as you.

    And we Google Web Services for our own in-house emails, rather than our own mail server. And we us Amazon Web Services for the forum auto-emails, rather than our own mail server. So that nobody can gain access via those either.

    We use CloudFlare Web Protection services to route all traffic via to get checked before loading the website, which keeps the baddies away.

    So all that combined makes us genuinely one of the most secure websites online. We pass with flying colours all tests I can find. :)

    One possible snag or side-effect is that I seem to have to login to ukp far more frequently than previously. I'm used to having to re-login once a month but it's become a daily occurence recently. Not a huge problem in the grand scheme of things but mildly irritating.

    If this is not a known problem, I'll pay more attention to how often it happens and see if I can pin down what's triggering the behaviour.

    I do check it but next time I'm asked to login it shows up as unchecked. (Using Safari 10.1.2 on Mac OS 10.12.6)

    Not a biggie, but I though Dan might be interested.
