How can I make my site secure?
« on: September 10, 2018, 04:47:20 pm »
We've been experiencing a lot of pop ups and I'm assuming this is why? How do I change this?

Hey there, so I purchased the SSL about 2 months ago, but have had 2 users say that when navigating they got pop ups (redirects?) to sites and their computers became infected with virus.  I tend to get the pop ups as well but no virus thus far.  I contacted GoDaddy and they said it's on the createaforum end. 


The landing page appears to be secure: https://www.creativelifesolutions.biz/index.php
But clicking into the forum is when the pop ups happen and appears to not be secure: https://www.creativelifesolutions.biz/index.php?action=forum


The rest of the pages are secure as well.


Any advice on this would be appreciated, since we're expecting over 100 new users in the coming weeks, thanks.

My guess it would be from your counter scripts in the footer of your forum in global footers
Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://counter4.whocame.ovh/private/counter.js?c=7q657y7dag3tm2gjgfthq54j5ajk55y9&down=async" async><

ah, it's a site counter...3rd party.  That's probably it.  I'll remove and see what happens, thank you. 


By the way, do you have all access to everyone's createaforum pages?

Very cool.  I'll keep that in mind if I ever need a reset or something.
