Forums Upgraded, Now More Friendly Towards HTTPS
Written by Michael Larabel in Free Software on 12 February 2016 at 08:20 PM EST. 50 Comments
Apologies for the brief downtime this evening of the forums with upgrading to the latest major release of the forum software.

Of interest to a number of Phoronix readers will be that the forums have worked out some HTTPS-related issues as with the new vBulletin release, they finally switched everything to using protocol-relative links. That should take care of a few outstanding issues.

This upgrade also brings some theme improvements and other changes.

If anyone runs into any issues as a result of this upgrade, please let me know. Thanks!
