    The site is now using the https url's which should bring in a bit more security for everyone. Anyone see any site issues please let me know.

    Site address is now https://www.royalmarines.uk rather than http://www.royalmarines.uk

    Basically Google is saying that it will soon change the content of your site (if you use Chrome) to warn people that forms like your log in forms aren't secure. Google changing the content of your site - there lies dragons people o_O.

    Some pages on the Royal Navy website seem to be insecure, surprisingly

    That's not its URL, but its web address mate.

    EDIT: You are in fact correct-http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/

    I'm quite chuffed we're now seen as a secure site, whatever secure actually means in cyber-geek world. Nevertheless I'm hoping it'll see us move up a notch or two in the Google search pecking order.

    Not noticed any side effects, the pages still seem to load quite fast.

    On a different note, none tech level. I'm a bit more sceptical of https, it leads people into thinking that they are safe to do what they want online. The truth is that anyone can get a https for free, sure it is sort of secure between you and whoever you are sending your info to - but https doesn't mean who you are sending your info to is safe. It's better than not having it technically, but don't turn off your spider senses if something doesn't feel right on a site just because it has a https.

    I'm more one of those who think seat belts in cars are actually dangerous, I'd much prefer to see a massive 12 inch spike coming out of the steering wheel. Watch how safe people drive then. -nailbiting-

    Anyway, I'm off back to my cave to wait out 2017 because the liberals say Armageddon is coming this year.
