Thank you Justin for bringing this to the club's attention. I don't understand any of this but after reading this thread I noticed the not secure warning when I redirect to the 356 talk forum. The main site or any of the other areas such as classifieds, news, etc. do not show the warning only the talk forum. I had bookmarked the site years ago and figured that the problem was with an old link so I deleted the bookmark, searched for the site and established a new bookmark. The talk forum still shows Not Secure in red.

The site does not use Cloudflare, but it does load a single JS framework through cloudflare that someone else hosted. You can see this at line 831 in the page source: '<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/ ... "></script>'

Transferring http and https mixed does not make a site insecure in itself nor does the forum handle any information that needs to be secured in transit. Adding cloudflare introduces another failure point and the cache it provides can cause headaches when it's not solving any problems. phpBB aggressively caches server side and the forum performance is adequate (< 2 second load time on most requests).

Note: This account is not monitored and I may be very slow to respond.
