    T.

    Since a long time before the outage, to get things to 'look' correct (with cookies/cache etc all cleared), I have to enter http://dmctalk.org/forum.php or dmctalk.org/forum.php (not secure). I assumed it was part of my admin/mod panel(s) problem....

    This will point your guy to the problem(s):
    Enter https://dmctalk.org -- It gives a page like novadmc posted (URL is https://....., secure, but all text).
    From there, clicking any link on the page takes you to http://....., non secure), EXCEPT the offsite link to vBulletin at the bottom.

    Once logged in, using "www" (i.e., http://www.... or https://www....) with any DMCTalk address will give a page that offers logging in. Secure or not, the user is really logged in still and clicking any (on site) link gives a page that is not secure. Using neither (i.e., www.dmctalk.org) redirects to http://www.dmctalk.org/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi which gives the "SORRY!" page.

    P.S. The site is going down and up as I type this?? Hopefully fixes, propagation....

    My tablet still went to the jacked up page. I cleared my cookies and it was fixed.

    Some of the vbulletin configs have specified absolute URLs to load certain things, like javascript & css.

    There is also an issue with session data set on the non-secure being unreadable on the secure (the double-login problem).

    Honestly the best solution is to force the entire site to use https and redirect all non-secure traffic to secure using rewrites. You'll get better google rankings too, if that's important
