Avatar or signature image missing? Click here to fix it
#1
As some of you have already noticed, we recently switched to using SSL (https) using Let's Encrypt. To prevent various mixed content warning messages, we've enabled a plugin that blocks all images (in avatars and signatures) that are not loaded via a secure https protocol and finally show that secure green indicator in your browsers address bar.

To fix this, simply edit your signature image link to https from http, and the same for your avatar (or simply upload it on our forum and it will be served via https normally).

We've already changed [img] tags for hosts supporting https in existing posts wherever that was possible but for the same reasons as above, posting an image from an insecure protocol will not work and the image instead of getting embedded will appear as a simple link opening in a new window. To properly embed an image, you will have to use an https host from now on!

Well, my issue is that the website that serves my signature does not support HTTPS. Normally I'd just change it, but my signature is kinda crammed and right at the character limit. I use the server that I use because it's a URL shortening image host. Because characters in the URL of the image count as characters in my signature even if they don't actually APPEAR in my signature. Is there anyway to get around that?

Would https://goo.gl/4WBtud work?

Says the image height is too big(height=150, max=130). I think I recall having to trim it before though.

Fair enough, I just wondered if there was a way to fix it without changing anything. I could also screenshot the text and make it in to an image.

Partially off topic, but if it's the same server which you use to embed images at the forum, it could be a good thing. IIRC I could never see your images because for some reason it just blocks them for me, and if I go to the URL itself (which I have to extract from the forum page source), then it puts me through ugly CAPTCHAs and whatever before it finally agrees to display it. And then it doesn't recall my IP when I get back to the forum. So I just gave up on seeing the images you post.

Same issue here actually when attempting to go to that site.

@Ryudo - thanks very much, the goo.gl link just barely fit!

@avih - Nah, the only place I've ever used that hmp.me is in my sig. That one on the forums is anony.ws, but it doesn't exist anymore. I've been using imgur for several months now for forum links.
