My computer also shows Scimitarweb as Not secure and has done so for many months now.

Unfortunately your screenprint doesn't show the address you used - especially if you're using a saved bookmark link, check that the link starts with https not http. If you're still using the old http link, it will still work, but produce a "not secure" message. If you use the secure link starting "https" then you shouldn't get the message and it should display a green padlock in the address line (dependant on browser).

I've just checked my connection and it feeds into the secure site, but as soon as it goes to the forum it is insecure. Is this correct?

This is the address I have in my address bar https://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/vie ... 78#p474178 The tab above the screen shows "(112) Not secure? - The Scimitarw" and then nothing because the tab isn't wide enough to show any more.

This is my saved site address:
https://www.scimitarweb.co.uk

This is what it connects to when clicking the navigation:
http://scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/

I'm not sure why it doesn't connect into the secure site?

If / when you start with a https:// you can still end up with an unsecure version. The menulinks are pointing to the usercured version, just like the [ScimitarWeb] button top left.

Erik has passed this to me for attention.
The server is secured by a valid certificate and can be accessed securely using the https protocol.
Some menu items have been inconsistent in this respect and I have just corrected those to all use https.
Other links throughout the site may be either https or http for historical reasons and it is not practical to change them all.

Thanks Erik and especially Ian, for sorting the anomalous menu links :)
