Dearest Members and Visitors of our little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,


Today we attempted to bring FPN over to full SSL, or, IOW, to get all pages displayed via https rather than http.

On our test site this proved to work just fine. Unfortunately, there appeared to be too many instances on FPN itself still where a message was displayed regarding insecure content, mostly caused by externally hosted images. Therefore, we decided to roll back and only make the login pages secure for now.


We will be looking to move the entire site to https eventually, but as it stands that apparently may only be possible after upgrading to the latest version of the forum software. We will likely put all our efforts into that first as a result.


Some smaller maintenance tasks were executed completely successfully, including installation of a security patch.


Enjoy, and as usual we will keep you posted of new developments!


Warm regards, Wim
