I would like to see Seti at Home transition to a HTTPS secure site.

Thanks

Well if you click on the Seti @ Home logo in the upper left corner of the forum you go to an HTTP site.

And if you go to the Add project tool in BOINC Manager the URL for Seti is an HTTP site.

So maybe they did the leg work and never transitioned the sites to use the HTTPS as primary ?

Thanks

Why would anyone want to click on a logo? Click on any of the other links, as you are supposed to, and you get HTTPS sites. Every project site in Boinc Manager" add project" tool is HTTP. But when you attach to a project then you get work from their HTTPS site. Why is there seemingly a problem?

Sorry Clicking on a Logo on most any site is an Old timers go to the Home Page trick.

Maybe it is a habit I should un-learn but since most every site and page has one it is most always easier than looking for a link back to a home page.

Thanks
Bill

I get "connection is not secure" and the padlock with a line through it....but I think that is because of the content uploaded here like pictures etcetra....
