Google Chrome is going start warning people if a site they are visiting via HTTP contains a text box. Even if said text box isn't for collecting a credit card number or other personal information. Of course, that includes PCQandA. I was going to get an SSL certificate, but then got a notice that we already had one. Surprisingly, all of my sites are available via HTTPS! (Though I need to tweak GhostThiefNovel.com a bit as something's not loading right there via HTTPS.)
No problem here using Firefox, didn't have to relogin. Except that instead of showing a green padlock symbol it showed a grey padlock with a yellow triangle. When I click the circle it shows: Could it be because there is mixed content i.e. links to non-secure pages? Just guessing, don't know much about https!
Yup. Cookies are used to maintain login so you should be able to stay logged in from http to https. Given all the positive responses, I might update the site to go HTTPS only. (I'll post a notice before I do so in case anyone has troubles.)
