In my view, Israel's update of his post (I can't remember what it originally said) didn't provide an answer to the questions in my reply, which would give an answer to folk in your position and who need to know:
1. What they should do
e.g. do you need to turn on https at the time of posting a request to activate https or only after Nabble have done whatever they need to do at their end, or do they need to wait until after Nabble have done their bit to switch to https
2. How (and in what timescale) Nabble would respond.
Because that will affect when a request might be posted as there's the possibility a site will be left with a link to a forum when it should appear embedded.
Volunteer Helper - but recommending that users move off the platform! Once the admin for GregHelp now deleted.
I've been wondering about all of those things as well. And then I came to the realization that I have to put HTTPS on my whole website in order to be able to turn it on for my embedded Nabble forum. But I don't have the needed certificate for my website, and they want significant money to get the certificate, so I'm not ready to do that.
Ok, I've looked into it and it should be an easy thing to get HTTPS on my Weebly site. However, there's something odd going on that doesn't let me flip the switch to turn it on, so I'm working that with them.
So, please continue on with SSL for the Nabble portion. However, that is assuming that once you do that the forum will still work but won't be "secure" until I can successfully flip the switch. Is that correct?
Makes sense, but then what do I know. (I retired from 40 years in IT, but I'd been promoted to my level of incompetence long ago, and had people working for me who had people working for them who knew what they were doing.)
Alright, Weebly has done their bit and I can enable SSL on the whole of the site. In fact, I have done that and, as expected, the forum won't load. So, having turned SSL off I'm now ready for your bit.
