    No more secure login to Windows Secrets Lounge

    I used to be able to get a secure login to Windows Secrets Lounge by logging into https://windowssecrets.com/forums/login.php?do=login. But now, when I try to log in that way, it takes the "s" off of the first part, resulting in my logging into "http" rather than "https".

    Apparently the ability to login securely was removed in the recent "upgrade".

    Sorry I can't be of much help, however:
    Maybe something changed on your end as it works for me. My browser is set to default to "HTTPS" for all sites.
    Also clicking your link above takes me right in.

    My Lounge pages are http only, but that isn't really an issue as long as the login itself is over an https connection. What I send over the wire can be read immediately by anyone so encryption is not required.
    [Edit] I just check the password change page and that is not encrypted either, not good.

    cheers, Paul
