I'm guessing, based on the timing and error message in the first screenshot that the new https change broke it.

Always consequences to changes... :)

We're looking into it.

Hopefully should be good to go now!  The forced https redirection was preventing the posting function from working. I have removed the redirection.

You may have to clear your browser caches, as redirects are cached locally in your browser.

FYI, default links are still https, you just will no longer be forced over if you type in http

One other small issue is the MMM banner at the top. (http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/mmm+joel_logo.jpg)

Since it's http, Firefox gives the "Connection is not secure" warning with a grey lock/yellow warning sign instead of green lock.  When I hide that one image and refresh, I get the green lock.

When I try to edit my post it gives me a warning: "The information you have entered on this page will be sent over an insecure connection and could be read by a third party."

I looked at the source code and in the form, the action has http instead of https.  When replying to a post it goes over https, but editing an existing post still goes over http.

The forum home page now shows as fully secure for me (I'm running Chrome on Debian). All of the sub forums show as fully secure. The reply page / window shows as fully secure. However, forum threads still show the "Mixed Content" security warning.

I will try editing this post.

EDIT: edit is working fine for me.

FWIW:  Since the https change I have been getting the pop-up.  But... it never stopped me from being able to edit.  The edits always worked if I ignored the pop up.

Platform: Firefox/Linux

edit to say: edit working fine for me
Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight

Similar issues here, but only on certain threads. For instance I cannot reply to sailor Sam's journal or the barnhouse thread, but my own journal and various other threads have no issues.

Weird.
