It is for me, and I don't get any message about the certificate not being in order either...

Maybe you just followed a link that left out the s? AFAIK it's still possible to access the forum via plain old http, and unfortunately you won't get redirected automatically.


Okay, thanks! Yes, indeed the first google result I get directs to the mere http version, and that's what I used. Silly me, I realise now that I could have just added the s to the URL line. But this makes me wonder if it wouldn't be better if the http address just redirected everyone to the https address?

Yeah, especially ever since the issue about the certificate was sorted out way back. Not that the certificate was ever bad, it was just that the name on it wasn't unilang.org, but rather proycon's domain, so some browsers issued a warning.

In any case, I've contacted him about it.

Right, I'll have a look soon to make sure everything redirects to HTTPS, I made an issue on github as well: https://github.com/proycon/unilangforum/issues/20

If the site is on Apache, basically that's all you need:

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =unilang.org [OR]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =www.unilang.org
RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,QSA,R=permanent]

Except that the server name "www" seems to only be on HTTP. I tried both "http://www.unilang.org" and "https://www.unilang.org" and both directed me to "http://ww.unilang.org". It's only the server name "forum" that seems to accept both HTTP and HTTPS connections.

I noticed a bug for the Wikipedia page associated with one of the language flags. The flag alt  (alt), which refers to the Altai language, incorrectly takes the user to this Wikipedia page for which there is no article. The correct Wikipedia page should be this one, as far as I can tell.
