    All,
    You "should" have received and email from me informing you I have decided to move our website to a SSL Secure Server. www.imtbgear has already been completed.
    This is for two reasons:

    1. This in hopes that it will solve a long standing issue of some members not being able to see the images posted if using Wild Blue Satellite Dish Internet Service.
    2. To improve the site folder format to enable SSL Secure Web Hosting.

    Google next month requires SSL of every site otherwise they will place an ugly banner stating that our site is not secure and to use at your own risk. This will not do!

    So I'm forking the bucks to migrate and secure our site and hopefully fix some tech issues!

    Just wanted to let you know this in case the site goes down. As stated in the email, I will get it back up and running if this happens.

    Just an FYI.
    As always, cross your fingers. I hate when we do Sh!t like this!

    :)Mikie

    the last time a board crashed that i was a member of... i went missing for 6-1/2 days, and came back smelling like nacho cheese doritos and dill pickles with no recollection of what had happened.

    Yup! I sent a bulk email to 1282 members late last night. If you did not receive it, you may have checked a box to not receive emails from the moderator. But why in the world would anyone not want an email from me???:unsure:

    Apparently not. When it does it will have a green lock next to the web address.
    Going to have to call them tomorrow, I reckon.

    All,
    The migration has completed and all is left is to now add the SSL Certificate.
    I know there has been some error issues.
    I assume some of you have received this error:
    upload_2018-6-28_19-24-20.png

    I believe this is now fixed. I was able to "Like" @Cyclotourist Oregon pics and @SnakeCharmer 's Beer Pic now.

    I have 14 day starting yesterday to elevate any additional errors or situations from the migration.

    @mountaingirl sara , you said you could not post to the "I Rode My Bike Forum". Is that still happening?
    Let me know any issues, ASAP!

    Thanks for the great patience everybody!

    Mikie

    Interestingly, I see videos that were posted/uploaded, but not pictures. Or at least pictures that were uploaded prior to the conversion. See:
