Is that next payment in July? What is the monthly payment?

I don’t mean to be nosy, but we can have no sense of the situation, the financial needs, nor plan for further assistance with just that one figure.

Michael,

At present the monthly payment - including July's payment - is $65. July's payment will be taken from the present $638:55 total.

Assuming the payment remains the same the we have funds to make payments up to April 2020.

James.

James, are you OK with posting your PayPal payment address? Others are having difficulty navigating to the payment portal. I reached it through the “store” button. Others don’t see that button, as shown in screenshots.

Thanks for the link! I just used it to make a 45 dollar contribution. I hope many more members will do the same.

David,

Although we own the content we only lease the site. As to why the site is not "HTTPS" is a decision decided by Invision.

As to the answer, I have no idea.

Sorry.

James.

I came across this information about securing an Invision site with SSL/HTTPS:
https://invisioncommunity.com/4guides/advanced-options/configuration-options/using-ssl-https-r273/

The first line suggests that for "Community in the Cloud" customers its a simple case of submitting a support ticket.  If an admin person for the EdForum does this, it may be possible to get Invision to redirect all http requests to https so everyone can be a little bit more secure in their visits.

Judging from the PHP code they have on the above page, I would say its a 5 minute job as you only need to change the "base_url" from http to https, and then flush the cache.  Its literally adding an "s" character and pressing a few buttons, but watch out for the warnings on the above page about possible problems this may cause.

As a test I tried accessing the Education Forum using the https like this:

https://educationforum.ipbhost.com/forum/126-jfk-assassination-debate/

This seams to connect securely, but of course as soon as you click a link you go back to plain old http, so an admin will need to tweak the settings to make https the default for all links.
