7 months later I figure it out.  I was using the Curve Theme it is easier on my eyes. 

Well I just switched to this on that it appears the majority here use and finally, when I am logged in the site is secure. 

The blue is very bright to my eyes.  Any idea how to dim it?

Still have it here.

Love the new banner but why does it go back to the old one when I log in?

I'm not seeing the not secure warning anymore and seems to be running a bit faster

On the site/forum settings that admins can see, there might be a check box for only allowing https embedding. It's a pretty typical setting, but not sure if you have it on your dashboard.

If not - I also agree that it's not worth the time to cull avatar images and such vs the actual risk of bad behavior by someone intending to do something bad.

I think the last thing is the only thing that really makes sense from a time investment perspective.

I think images from photobucket (and maybe other places) could cause issues - any image hosted as http will. However, the warning shouldnít be for every page once the banner is fixed and thatís the easist for me to fix without having members re-do avatars and searching through years of posts for any vulnerable images.  The likelihood of a hacker trying to use an image vulnerability is pretty low so by fixing the easily found banner I think it will be fine. Some of the avatars are stored on site, so those wonít be an issue. I could load the others to our site and prevent new users from uploading their own, but I donít think there would be a way to prevent someone else from using your avatar if I upload it to the site. I can also look at the settings for members posting pictures and see if I can restrict future images to https.

So RC do you think the security warning could go away once weíve replaced the banner (which will happen very soonówe have a new banner). Or do you think all the profile pics will be a problem if theyíre at Photobucket?

Itís a bit slow for me (not sure if itís my internet though). Using Safari.  Otherwise no trouble. I did not have to log in again - never got logged out. Still shows https. Never got any messages about security.

Maybe I didnít click over to the site at the right time? But still didnít have to log back in. I havenít tried posting images, My avatar is fine.

Just posting FYI in case it is useful.

Slow here too, using firefox. I had the locked thing--https, but now posting I have an warning that some parts are not secure ("Parts of this page are not secure, such as images.") Maybe that's the banner thing, but it's only happening in a post screen.

Using Chrome - still slow and the little i is there and says that some images might not be secure and hackers could alter them and trick me!

That's what we are all seeing too (on Chrome) --- the little (i) and then the message about images not being secure. On Edge - it seems their messaging just shows differently, but there aren't any additional issues.

You're good - seeing what we are seeing/experiencing and nothing extra.

Images will do that --- as already pointed out --- like the banner image, folks' avatar images, anything in a post, etc. if it's not coming from an https.
