Hm, I got into the site without using a proxy at school so success in that :D

However, some little things....
OmnomIRC doesn't work, albeit my using an old version of chrome (12.0.742.122) while firefox takes its time updating on the USB drive.  I can click the chan tabs and they change, clear cookies, etc but the log won't load and the send button doesn't work.
Also, the login on the front page goes to the http version of the site, despite going there from the https page.
EDIT: the banner on top goes to the http version as well
EDIT2: omnomIRC showed in the login page, before I logged in ???

EDIT3: so I'm trying the https at home, and things seem normal for the most part.  Omnom works, the Quick Modify button is there, etc
So apparently it's trying to load stuff from the normal omnimaga, not the https, which is blocked so some things don't work :\

I hadn't seen the edits to the previous post, so I overlooked it.

Due to the way that SMF and OmnomIRC, etc... work, they're not very SSL-friendly. OmnomIRC uses http://.. hard-coded in numerous places, and SMF wants it set to either HTTP or HTTPS in the config, and it returns links to pictures, etc... based off of what is in there.

I would move the site over to SSL, if not for the fact that an SSL cert costs so much. Making users get warnings about bad SSL certs seems like a bad idea.

Sorry to hear Netham45. Hopefully this won't be an issue for our members at school or home x.x

Ok then, I guess I'll just deal with the problems :P

In any case it works a ton better than through pretty much any (unblocked) proxy so yay

I was wondering why certain buttons work with SSL and why others don't.  Like, Modify and Quote show and work but Quick Modify isn't shown at all, and the "More attachments" button is borked as well :\
Would it be possible to fix a few of these?  Idk about the more attachments button but afaict the quick modify button just isn't showing..
