Avatar/Image Changed/Doesnt Work/Embed
#1
A recent update we have implemented has removed the possibility to embed non-HTTPS images in posts, signatures or avatars.
Links to insecure content can still be posted without issues.

You may have seen some links that look like this [Image: rtXR7rU.jpg].
This is where our system has picked up a non-HTTPS delivered image and decided to NOT embed it.


Non-HTTPS avatars have all been reset to default and the forum will now reject any non-HTTPS avatars.

We recommend using Imgur.com for image hosting and using the HTTPS EVERYWHERE plugin if it is available for your browser.

Imgur supports https, so just putting the s in there will sort it.

If you visit https://www.eff.org/HTTPS-EVERYWHERE there should be a button in the middle of the page to install it for your browser (if supported) and it will make your browser use HTTPS everywhere that it can.

I did put the s in there but it said that my url was still invalid when I tried to change my avatar. I'll see if I can install that thing though, cheers Renton

I'm using https everywhere in firefox, I think the youtube embed code is wrong.

PHP Code:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/WUH9NaZI9eA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br/> 

Renton needs to change that from http:// to https://
