HTTPS Conversion

Discussion started on Main News


Hello everyone,

As some of you may know Google is now penalizing websites that are not using the HTTPS protocol! (More info here: Currently it's easy and free to get a SSL certificate using Let's Encrypt; however, SMF does not support https for plenty of tasks and if you get such a certificate you'll see multiple errors as links are being handled to non-secure pages.

Here at we are offering the service to port websites from HTTP to HTTPS, this includes:

  • Changing all paths to guarantee avatars, attachments, javascript and css to work!
  • Include secure links for images embedded in posts.
  • Force the use of HTTPS when HTTP is requested.
  • Include support for external images used as avatars which can throw that too.
  • Assist in identifying mods that don't support https out of the box.

The entire process is entirely pain-free and it has been tested here and in two additional websites! If you are interested please contact us:

Best regards!

Do you handle the parts with "Lets Secure" or do I proceed with the service then contact you for integration?

I can help you with the SSL certificate (it doesn't has to be Let's Encrypt), but that kind of assistance maybe limlted by the hosting provider, in all the transitions I have done this part was quite easy to achieve!

Hi Nibogo,

What is the best order to do this in? Install https on the website and then contact you to convert the forum?

I'm guessing this would mean a downtime with the forum being 'broken' between those two stages?

Best wishes

Installing the SSL certificate in your domain should be the first step, there is no downtime involved!
