Forum has unsafe script?

[ Edited ]
6 replies 523 views Edited Apr 28, 2013

So today, I went to edit a post of mine, and the rich text editor was loaded in a weird way.

 

I am using Google Chrome Beta and at the top right of the address bar, there's this shield thing. I clicked on it and selected ''Load unsafe script'' and the rich text editor loaded correctly.

 

I also noticed that when loading the unsafe script the https:// went from GREEN to RED with a cross over it.

 

Sometimes it happens, not all the time.

 

My question is, is this a bug with the forum or Lithium? Cuz I don't have this problem on the EU Forums.

 

Thanks

No idea, I bet DVM could answer this question though. I mean, the forums are safe...

its not a bug Its Chrome informing you that Https has been diabled for content as content is hosted on non Https hosting.

This is because this site hosts user generated content that can be hosted on any server...

 

Images 

Sigs

and so on..

  

To use Https correctly every peace of data that a site loads would have to be on https servers...

 

One disadvantage of using beta software is that there is no instructions on new software features... Till it becomes non Beta... in the stable version.... 

 

But this is in the stable version.... and is listed on googles own site..

To add to Graphite, "Unsafe Script" in this case is referring to the lack of https support. The script of the forums wont cause any harm to your computer, it's just running on a the standard protocol rather than the encrypted secure protocol. Furthermore the Rich Text Editor isn't actually part of the Lithium software. It's a TinyMCE plugin. So any errors in the post editor tend to either be TinyMCE or browser related.

Usually when I get this message, the potentially unsafe script has been scrubbed already.  I click the Post button again and it posts.

 

I used to have a problem sending PM's with a % (percent sign) in them.  It didn't like those at all.  Now I make a habit of using the word percent if that ever comes up in a PM.

As usual, DVM is on the money & making it rain.

 

I would like for the forum to go full HTTPS but most likely this will never happen. We would have to make sure that all assets, as well as, external content posted on the community are delivered over HTTPS  [images, signatures & videos] otherwise, HTTPS will be broken.
