In an ongoing effort to keep things secure and updated, we have migrated the site to HTTPS tonight.

Major search engines are pushing for this, and Chrome has started reporting in the address bar when sites aren't secure

Woodbarter is now running behind HTTPS, so communications from your browser back to the server hosting the site is encrypted.

Redirects have been put in place, so everything will redirect to the HTTPS connection, so there should be nothing needed from you as a user of the site.

Any issues or questions, let me know.

We really appreciate you keeping an eye out for us Matt. That was likely the most understated statement on the net... but I can't think of another way to put it.

Except that it says to click on it for info but you can't.
Never mind, you actually have to click on "here" to make it work, lol.

I cannot upload pics from my phone, it says the file is to large, is this because of the upgrade? Are we going to have to reduce file sizes again?

If you are trying just now, I'm literally in the middle of an upgrade on the server. Give me 20 minutes, and you'll be able to again.

What about the Spanish Inquisition?

Because nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.
