Title: It's 2020 and no TLS-encryption
Post by: sact on November 09, 2020, 04:41:16 AM
I was wondering could Collector or whoever is responsible for running these websites could consider setting up TLS-encryption in place  to both http://sciprogramming.com and http://agiwiki.sierrahelp.com ? If there's lack of knowhow, EFF's certbot-website should help you get it up and running in notime:

SierraHelp is managed by Collector, but I think this site is managed by Cloudee1, who hasn't been active for a year. A lot of the Sierra fan pages, for that matter, are seen as "not secure" by Chrome.

I do agree that an SSL certificate would be a good idea. My new site, The Missing Floppies, does have one (it came with my Hostinger plan and never expires).

Yeah. I'm considering moving things over to my new site. I spared no expense and got a XenForo license. I can connect the new board with the main site, which uses WordPress.

Here's my analysis of this site:
Arcade
   Doesn't work. Probably don't need it anyway.

Shop
   Uses SMFShop. I can replace this with trophies, which are standard in XenForo.

Gallery
   Uses SMF Gallery, can be replaced with XenForo Media Gallery... later.

Tools, Fan Games
   XenForo Resource Manager can handle these easily.

There will be search engine optimization, proper support for mobile devices, and social media support.
