Photools.com front page link to photools-services.com not HTTPS
« on: February 13, 2019, 06:09:49 PM »
1) The link on the photools.com banner to "Community" is to http://photools-services.com/community/ Firefox and other browser complain that the username/password will be sent insecurely.

2) If the user make a bookmark to https://photools-services.com/community/ and attempts to login, that attempt fails with the message:

Code: [Select]
An Error Has Occurred!
Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again.

Is it really necessary to have a valid referrer in the case of linking directly to photools-services.com/community/?

In any case, a bookmark pointing to https://photools.com/community/ works fine as expected.

Looks like it's the link for Community at https://www.photools.com/

That takes you to http://photools-services.com/community/ which gives a 'not secure' message for the URL in Chrome.

If you mean the community link right at the top (there are several on that page) I have fixed that.
