    Request: enabling SSL login to AQ forum

    Hello, my first post here. I've been on LQ for a few years and now I have just discovered I could use my login credential to access AQ.

    When I log into LQ I use a secure page:
    https://www.linuxquestions.org/

    and then I can reuse my account to access AQ. But if I log into AQ directly from this page:
    https://www.androidquestions.org/

    I get a warning that my credentials will be redirected to an insecure page.

    Can the admin please enable SSL login on this site? Thanks

    Thanks for the feedback. As the site grows it's likely we'll purchase an SSL certificate for AQ, although I don't have an exact ETA for you at this time.

    Thanks Jeremy, but my problem is not with certificate but with the login
    script. On the LQ forum I stay in ssl after logging in, but on AQ my
    credentials are sent in clear. This is the message:
    Code:
    Security Warning
    
    Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to
    be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a
    third party.
    Is it possible to copy the login script from LQ or are these two
    completely different pieces of software? Thanks

    While they are completely different sites, that's not the issue you're having. SSL is not enabled for AQ as we haven't purchased a certificate for it at this time.
