Recently, when trying to log in here, either on iPad or laptop, I keep getting a warning that this website is not secure - has anyone else noticed this? I don't sign in very often but this makes me wary.

Are you running old computers or Operating Systems? I don't have any problems with this site but some time ago when I used to get messages like that it was to do with the security certificates becoming incompatible with old operating systems and I had to upgrade to the latest version.

No, Jeffian, newish iPad with latest IOS updates and not so new laptop running Windows 10 with all latest updates. On the iPad as soon as I start to enter my email address to sign in, the address bar shows in red 'Website not secure'. On the laptop, an exclamation mark appears alongside the address and when you click it, it says that the website is not secure. It's not an actual message, Geoffrey, more a warning within the address bar.

You are probably seeing this because the forum pages are on an unencrypted HTTP connection. HTTPS can be used for the main pages, although even here some of the content (images?) is unencrypted. [Edit] The login page also appears to be unencrypted.

This is simply the way the site is configured.

I never thought this was a secure site - there are no https signs
