    Hi all, I'm a newbie here.

    While perusing the forum I noticed I was getting a mixed content warning, so I'm guessing the forum was recently changed to use ssl, and not all the script urls were updated to https

    So basically all your google ads are being blocked by certain browsers, such as IE11.

    Edit, had to remove the offending line of code because it wouldn't let me post it, even using the code tags..

    Just thought I'd mention it. ;)

              I don't get those warnings you mention in your first post. so am unsure what you are getting. Maybe an Admin such as @Zigs or @ARMANDII will come along and give an opinion?

                I use Chrome and always get a warning that GC pages are trying to "load unauthenticated script".

                Me being me, I aint got a clue what that means, so.......I just ignore it.:snorky:

                          It's not the server but your forum software calling a script using a insecure url. It's right there in the source code if you view source. ;) I can't post urls for some reason, or I'd post the offending line you need to change. Actually, if you google, "why no padlock", and then enter the forum url into that site, it'll show you the problem.
