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... :)

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

March 31st, the problem persists. I've also noticed other users mentioning it in some topics recently.

Thanks for your help.

Today, unable to edit at real separate times of the day.

But server access seemed wonky today, too, maybe related.

I have been nudged ;-D. I am digging more into the issue now.  At least right now, it seems to be an issue isolated to iOS and MacOS safari use, as using chrome on my MacBook I don't receive this error. Anyone still having this issue, can you please let me know your os/browser you are using on the forum?

Can confirm. I am currently using an Asus laptop and Chrome browser. However when I switch to Safari on my iPhone or Mac the problem persists. Thanks for your efforts.

Edit: now I can't post a new message on this thread. But I can edit xD

I use IOS 10.2.1 and Safari is my browser when I can't edit.

For a period  this evening I was not even able to Reply to threads or post new topics from my IPAD.

I am making this post from my PC using Firefox.

Two days ago I was going to come here and say "you guys are brilliant, you fixed it." I had just edited a post.

but then, when I tried to post on this thread, I couldn't. Couldnt start a new thread either with a new post.

This morning editing worked fine from my IPAD.

I am posting this message from my PC.
