    Actually the downtime was due to a different issue, but since it ended up being fairly long we used the time we were forced to wait for figuring out other things.

    For example, we were able to switch last night to encrypted connections without any interruption.

    Now the connection between you and the site is encrypted and this is all there is to it.
    Basically, in the past if someone could intercept your internet traffic between you and SRP they could see everything that's being transmitted. Now even if they do, what they'd get is encrypted and very hard to decrypt. Of course, once it is on SRP anything you've transmitted is as protected as it's always been (actually it's protected better then ever).

    Odd, I did not have to sign in until this AM. All works well.
    Thanks for your efforts, Gugi.

    It does work, but I'm getting "Mixed content" warning, and something about non-encrypted images. Hope it helps to debug.

    That's not really a bug, unfortunately.
    When people include in their posts images from other sites those would use the connection to that site and it may not be encrypted.

    It's easy enough to disable this behavior so that only images which come from encrypted connections would show and images from non-encrypted connections wouldn't.
    I just did it if you want to take a look.

    However, it is a matter of some pages either:
    (1) do not show some of the images included from external sites
    or
    (2) display the 'mixed content' warning

    The two things are mutually exclusive at this point and I'm OK with either way. The question is what does the majority prefer?

    I don't know what has changed, but I stopped getting these "mixed content" warnings, and now it's fully secured and verified. Good job!

    I put a block on anything that's not using encrypted connection, i.e. option (1) in my previous post.

    I too am not sure what does the majority prefer, but I think this solution is the correct one as far as the security concerned.
