Ok since we have been having these ssl problems. A lot of the links are not functional. The link to the forum at the top of this http://porteus.org/info/docs/45-other/1 ... ricks.html
not functional. Do we need to report stuff like this now or wait until it is resolved with the ssl problems?

The 4 hours you mentioned seem to be over...
I made the decision to generate a 2046bit SSL certificate today and wait until tonight when everyone is sleeping before i assign it to the site. SSL has been disabled until then. I believe the previous problem may have stemmed from using the 4096bit cert. Too may bits. Sorry for any inconvenience. After assigning the certificate tonight, i will go to bed and allow the global DNS some time to catchup, then reapply the SSL settings early in the morning.
How do i become super user?

I re-enabled the SSL Support on the forum and on the website.

Forum https://porteus.org/forum
Website : https://porteus.org

If you have any issues with the ssl support , just report it.

An observation only.

On one computer using windows I am alerted that third party folks can view whatever I am doing. Even though the page is in https:// for secure. On another computer I can view the site with the http://porteus.org/forum/ page using Fedora/Slackware/ or live porteus cd.

Thanks to all for fixing the viewing troubles within windows :)

Hello,

It is not an issue. Only the login and register pages are on https (ssl support).

Regards,

Nah... it's that Windows again.... :D

Things never seem to work with IE, anyway... :)

@agreimann,
I am sorry, but your comment is not about a bug on the forum.

Do not post a message about another subject.
E.g: You are posted a message about Windows..
And , the subject of this thread is the Forum's bugs only.
11. Keep on topic - If you are replying about something to do with iptables for example, and someone mentions a configuration tool that runs in KDE, don't start talking about KDE, stick to the topic. Go start a new topic and post a link to the old one if there is relevant information there.
I hope you understand this rule.

Sorry. I was merely trying to joke. :)

Staying on topic, I have not noticed one bug with the Porteus website.... so I'm not quite seeing where there's anything really serious outside of when Internet Explorer 8 or greater (yuck!) is used. Under Firefox (which runs on every *decent* system by default--e.g. Linux, openIndiana, etc.) and in Safari for Apples there's not any "compatibility mode" errors. I haven't looked at the site yet--have you tried turning on quirks mode in your code for IE 8 and 9? Also, I might add that you are in safe company if your site has bugs with the newer IEs--other websites I've visited I've had to toggle compatibility mode on. Maybe M$ will imitate Firefox to the point IE will function exactly the same! :D Fx *is* the better web browser. Anyway, I do apologize about going off track earlier.

I think this may be a spam bot of sorts I am sorry I couldn't figure out the reporting feature or even if we have one.
It is kinda obnoxious.
