Wow, even the our old forum is secure.  Beautiful work, PCNetSpec!  ;)

No problem guys :)

I know the old forum isn't used much any more (and I think user logins are disabled), but theoretically admin can still log on, and some users may TRY to login, so I figured their passwords should be protected  by SSL / encryption as they travel across the interwebs just in case.

I used the old forum the other day.  I could still login to access my user threads.  It took a bit of time to remember my details.  I've now got it to automatically log me in.  It saves me fusing a few more brain cells  ;D.   It's still a very useful resource  ;).

Ahh right, it must be just posting that's locked then .. even more reason to have it secure, so nobody can intercept your password.
