After the maintenance, it seems that Youtube video no longer show previews and instead show up as hyperlinks.

Example:
shows up as

This has also messed up Youtube videos on guestbooks.

Update: Might be a problem for the site. Youtube itself actually died lol.

Yeah I had to turn that off temporarily to get some other stuff to work, I'll hopefully be able to fix it tomorrow.

Not sure if I should be asking the following question here specifically or if we're even allowed to know about this in its entirety, but I am admittedly curious about what all has been changed recently?

I did just notice a mere few minutes ago that the site seems to now have a secure connection while viewing the boards and overall forum whereas it didn't previously, IIRC.
But then apparently it doesn't while viewing individual topics for some strange reason? Not sure what's up with that, tbh.

Though in either case the site seems to work on phone data now according to one of my friends, which is pretty neat. Not sure if this was actually one of the changes made recently or not, though.

Yeah I see that too. Boards are secured and topics aren't. Good job for improving the site though dark :)

For me-- it varies depending on the topic/category. This topic, for instance, isn't secure while everything under S&N is secure.

EDIT: It seems to be the YouTube videos that make a topic insecure; something off with how they're embedded?

It's secure on my end even though there's an embed at the top, that's odd.

Either way congrats on https!

double congrats on getting it before Neopets which got revamped and *didn't* ._.

Yeah it was to get https running. You might get a "mixed content" message from pages where people have linked to an image with http but the site itself should still be https. Thanks for pointing that out about Youtube videos, they should now start linking to the https thumbnail.

Huh, it's showing up as secure for me. Strange...

Problem solved-- it became secure once I cleared my cache on mobile and when PC Chrome presumingly cleared its own cache. My bad! smilie

EDIT: Thank-you Dark for everything you do if I haven't said it already.
