    https not allowed, chrome popping up warnings.

    Hello,

    I seem to be having an issue using Chrome. The Https isn't working and I am having to hop through a privacy warning page to see all content.

    The top level domain (cosmoquest.org) is working correctly, perhaps a setting is off someplace?

    Not the problem I'm having. My problem is that CQ never 'remembers' me. I have to sign in every time. (Yes, I check the 'remember me' box)

    I'm not sure if its related to the fact that the site is now nested inside an ubersite, and that I get here via bookmark: forum.cosmoquest.org

    When I go via the book mark, I get the warning screen, as does Solfe. When I go through cosmoquest.org and get to the forums that way, I don't.

    I don't get the warning when using an incognito browser tab, but the https is still crossed out.

    I got the same stuff using either Chrome or Microsoft Edge, when going directly to the forum. Entering through cosmoquest.org did not encounter that, but in address field it says "Not secure" in red text.

    It's telling me the security certificate expired yesterday. I'll let Pamela know.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    And FWIW, Chrome on my creaky old iPad 1 seems to work fine.

    The apps that do work (iPad, some Chrome) probably use a link that starts with HTTP instead of HTTPS. That means the web traffic isn't encrypted, and you might run the slight risk that someone might try to steal your connection (and thus gain access to your account here). It's probably not a big worry.

    Anyway, if you want to use the HTTP link temporarily, as a work-around (just remove the S in the browser address bar), remember that it might give some issues with staying logged in (the "remember me" option), and you would still get the warning page if someone puts a link in his post with HTTPS.

    There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.

    She literally said "in the morning," but given she's pretty busy - and I don't know how long the fix takes to percolate into the system - I figured I'd make a more approximate announcement.

    Possibly related, possibly not: I just logged in with my password fully visible in the password field - not obfuscated. I think the password field itself may have been altered.

    Got that warning at home yesterday evening (Edge) and again today at work (MSIE). Did not get it this time (Edge).

    Thanks, I was worried the Fermi paradox discussion got too close to,,, something...and the time lords had to close us down before panic spread.

    After three days of nonsense trying to log in, it's finally working again.

    My firefox bookmark [https://forum.cosmoquest.org] just goes to a page that says "Welcome to nginx! If you see this page, the nginx web server is successfully installed and working. Further configuration is required." Only when I use url "forum.cosmoquest.org," without the https, can I get to the forum.

    I'm using https and it seems fine. I think I had the nginx thing the first time I tried loading from https this morning. Try reloading it, I think that fixed it for me.

    Cougar, I had that happening for a few hours yesterday, after several days (or so it seems) of the missing certificate message, and then I think it was giving me an empty page, but now everything has returned to normal. It felt like the site was out of commission for days.

    Maybe those of you who still see nginx can try to do a forced reload (ctrl-F5 on windows), or to remove temporary internet files (empty the cache) and try again?

    Ok, I just got through. I sometimes despair of this place. Many of us don't know the tricks, and the issue should never have happened.
