hello Andrew,


i see below that you are currently active. AND NOT TO POST DIRECTLY TO YOU.


SO, x.its.tongue.MOM, had a panic moment when he found that Chrome reports your site as unsecured. He did not understand it, quite frankly neither do I.



HTTPS ?


WHAT IS HTTPS?
https stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure. It is the secure version of http, the protocol used for sending data between your browser and a website. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted. The 'S' stands for secure. Web browsers will usually display a green padlock to indicate that a secure connection is in place. For https to work, an https certificate needs to be installed on the server.


WHAT IS AN HTTPS CERTIFICATE?
https uses a public and private key system. Data that has been encrypted with the public key can only be decrypted by the private key and vice-versa.
When a web browser connects to a webpage via https, the server sends its https certificate to the browser. This certificate contains the public key needed to begin the secure session.


WHY DO I NEED HTTPS?
Data sent over regular http connections are sent in plain text and could in theory be read by anyone who intercepts the connection. With an https connection, the data is securely encrypted, meaning that even if someone intercepted it, they wouldn't be able to read it.
Starting in January 2017, Google's Chrome browser will begin to mark non-https pages as 'Insecure'. This warning may put off visitors to your site. Other browsers are expected to follow suit in due course.
More details on this can be found HERE
Additionally, Google is now using https as a ranking signal, meaning not having https could harm your site's ranking in Google. More details on this HERE.


That's for anyone else getting as spooked.


ANYWAY,
He like I want a forum AND yours ( with exception of personalising the home page AS HE REQUESTS ) seems perfect.


I like he, have just about given up on getting any responses from any of your forum members, despite having seen a few site with features ALREADY installed  and currently functioning.


Please help.


OH YES, AND~ if you would / could allow a large size attachment I could ? will post those examples here, as well

Do not worry about https site still functions. Find I will add SSL logins/registration at some point.

You do not have to do anything it is still safe to login and use your forum. Google is just trying to force this change on every website.

OK,


So let me be as polite as I can.


I see an option, under style management to apply a ' New year ' style. ( i say not because i want that style BUT~ because it is proof of the fact that what I want IS POSSIBLE )


SO~ Please tell me how to apply that FULL BACKGROUND IMAGE to your ' Dark Green ' style option.


I can't be any more politer than that, nor clearer.


SO~ Please.....
