 http vs https [SOLVED]
#
Hello!
I have a question regarding the http/https transition:

is there a fixed date when all http sites will force-pass to https? And also, what's the explanation behind the way sites kind of mess up in terms of coding when accessed through https instead of http?

Thanks in advance!

Tek:

I can't seem to locate the timeline now but I remember reading somewhere that it will not be until 2021 that Google Chrome will start marking http websites as insecure and put a big warning up. So time will be up around then whether anyone is ready or not in a sense.

But, when will we force all sites to use HTTPS or nothing? I would really like to have everyone using HTTPS by 2020, in advance before Google throws down on HTTP. But I can't say when we'll finally close http. Obviously we're not ready for this and I don't see that happening for 2 years.

Very soon, though, we will be directing users to HTTPS by default for new forum creation but using it will not be forced upon anyone at this time.

Websites are "messed up" because they are serving embedded content (scripts, css images, etc) over http and not https. HTTP and HTTPS do not mix.

More details about everything you're asking is discussed in our wiki page regarding https
