Don't know if anybody else is experiencing strange goings on.

I can be logged in , go from a thread , back to the home page by pressing home, then it will have me logged out from the site.

Sometimes I can press home at the top of page again or some thing else , then I reappear as logged in. Mostly not though.

I went off the forum a moment ago, as I had disappeared from being logged in again, and the thread I was looking at had pages in the hundreds, and all I could see was page one when I clicked it , followed by /next , however no fast forward to the last page, which would have left me to do 170 something , Next clicks to get to present day.

When I left forum, then showed up again, it had me logged back in wallah!

Now I'm being told its ran into problems trying to post this. It is requesting a prefix, what is a prefix, I've got a title up.


OK looks like had to select ' feedback'

Hi Kindlling,

Looks like you worked out the prefix one.

Regarding the logging issues. I think I might know what is causing this. Can you confirm for me and report back:
  1. When you are logged in. Up the top left of your browser where the forum URL is does it say "secure" or have a padlock icon?
  2. When you click home and get logged out does it say "Not Secure" or something like that?
I think it could be something to do with the browser only remembering the password to the Secure version of the site (https://) and not the standard http one. The home button is directing to the http so I will have a look at fixing this regardless.

When I navigate to website using iPad running latest os in the address bar it says Not Secure-buschcraftoz.com.

Not sure what, or how to get to secure website.

Couldn't see those two things you mentioned Blake.

I'm not on an app, by the way, and I view from a phone.

Could be . thanks.

Yes, it has happened with me too. I've been lazy and gone back to a previous page via history. I assumed it was when I'd visited "new territory".

Its still giving me the runaround.
When looking at bottom of home page , latest threads.

I clicked on the thread I wanted to view, whilst logged in.

When I got in , the view seemed a bit different , like the format possibly?

Then whilst looking at option to reply, it says I must log in first (again) .

Then I clicked to login, then it said you are already logged in lol

Then I clicked on this thread and I'm allowed to reply here no worries

Also, where the page bushcraftoz.com/thread etc. above in the search bar shows a little red hazard triangle sign with the exclaimation mark in it /!\ .

I have minimal techy know how by the way.

So I'm passing on the clues.
Thanks.

Hi everyone,

The site should now default to the secure version of the site (https://)

If you are being told you are already logged in it is because you are logged into the http version. To get around this you will need to logout and clear your browser cache by following the instructions here depending on your browser.

Alternatively If you are asked to login then do so and remember your password if you like. Your browser should eventually re-cache the new https (secure) version of the site. I have added a redirect so anyone who tries to go to http will be redirected to the secure version automatically. Please report back here and let me know how you go.

So far so good thanks Blake.
Thanks mate. I setup the redirect as a temporary one. Technically it should be permanent for better SEO but its really hard to undo if it buggers anything up if I do it permanently. I will monitor here so please post any problems and I will observe for a few weeks. If all good I will make it permanent after I'm confident its all ok.
