Yes, one or two other members have also pointed this out.

I previously found a browser extension called 'Smart HTTPS' useful when navigating WP, since one could enable the https mode for general security, but also disable it with a single click in order to see YouTube videos. At the moment the extension is irrelevant, of course.

Let's hope that https functionality can be restored in the near future, and that any other glitches that have arisen as a result of the server transfer will be addressed.

At least the horrendous 502/520/524 error messages and the daily outages seem to be a thing of the past now, plus of course we can all see YouTube videos!

I thought WrongPlanet was dead because I had it bookmarked as https and I couldn't access it.

Some people might still be locked out for that reason. One or two might never return....

I almost never returned because I thought I got banned. Tried on mobile & it worked.

Whoever's running this site, PLEASE get https working again. I don't trust sites that won't work with it.

Same here, my browser uses https by default(as any browser should these days).

It took me almost a week before I tried on my phone and realised wrong planet was still here. I just thought the main site was down and just the mobile working because my security addon defaults to https on all my main computers.
Does anyone know why this is happening. I would feel more secure using https and knowing my password and other stuff are safe from hackers.
