  • How do I use https:// as opposed to http://

    I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, and I don't think it is, but I was wondering:
    How might I go about changing from http:// to https://?

    Thanks,
    -Yaggles

          Read the forum rules and don't hijack threads.

            Just curious, how is this hijacking? THe problem was solved above,

            Ok. That works for me. :P
            so I see it as Continuing a thread of the same nature. BTW I read the posting rules of this forum and it says nothing of hijacking. It asks that you stay on topic to keep from turning it into a chat room.

            I am not trying to be a jerk here. I am seriously curious because I have started new threads in the past and get complaints for not looking at or using a similar threads to continue the conversation. And now I see someone getting set straight on something I also was told to do.

            I would like to know for future reference. It seems that there is a common courtesy in forums but different on each one. One forum asks you not to type "Bump" to get your thread back to the top after being 25 pages deep (as opposed to reposting the entire post again) while others request you type "Bump".

            SO how do you win? BTW the "Bump" instance is not really in the forum rules that I have read, but sort of more an each user opinion, in which case is like trying to agree on a pizza topping.

            Again not challenging you here, more or less want to know for future reference.

            Thanks

              Because the original thread asked how to get a https:// instead of a http://. And admittedly is was placed in the wrong forum (PHP) because he wasn't sure here to place it (in that case, it's understandable). That question was answered and everyone was happy.

              A new user came in, posted a brand new question ("i filled out a ssl form and it gave me an encrypter key. What do i do with that key now?") after the original thread had been solved, making his question a) irrelevant, b) useless in forum searches, and c) off topic. Not to mention as a brand new question it was certainly in the wrong forum.

                  It's common sense. Pretend it's a real-life conversation. Would you interrupt someone who's discussing a problem to say, "hey, could you help me with this other problem?" Of course you wouldn't!

                  Bumping a thread is pretty rude, too, although once in a while it's okay. If you're new, expect to be admonished for bumping a thread, but if you're familiar in the community people tend to be a little more forgiving.

                  If you have a new question, start a new thread AFTER searching the forum first to see if it's already been answered. Ask nicely, give as much information as you can, and be polite when expecting a reply. People do not get paid here to help with others' problems... they do it on their own spare time, to be nice. So the least everyone else can do is be patient and accepting.

                  Again, this isn't rocket science. It's everyday common sense. If you ARE the type of person to interrupt other people in the middle of their conversation to say, "hello? I asked a question! Aren't you going to help me?"... well, then good luck to you.

                  Edit: Whoops, typed all that after you already replied. Ah well, maybe it'll help someone else

                    Well since you brought it up I would like to elaborate on the "Bump" comment.

                    I am a developer. I come across problems and I go to forums. While I wait for someone to help me with my problem, I often try to help with someone else's problems but I do not have the time to become a "regular" in this forum or any other for that matter. SO when I do post a question (BTW I make a living at this, not for recreation) I need the answer to my problem like yesterday. But I am not one of those guys that bumps if it is 6 posts down or a couple pages back. But I have waited 2-3 days and posted on other forums. And while juggling the forums topics, I do research and try things on my own. But honestly after a post goes 6+ pages deep, you can pretty much right it off.

                    SO I ask this, because I am not "Known" to the forum community as a regular what am I supposed to do? If I repost the topic, I get flack, If I bump the topic for people who may not have been on here within the first 2-3 days I posted it, I get flack. So what do you do? It almost sounds a bit elitist to accept that I have to assume the regulars in here know me before I can get away with typing "bump". In my opinion, it is saving a good bit more resources than reposting. And overall, I need my questions answered (Like most people) bottom line.

                    I do understand that noone gets paid for these things (I have my own forum) but I also find it hard to believe that if people are wanting to help others and your question has been viewed like 100 times with no comments, that maybe the people viewing are people looking for the same answers I am SO I see nothing wrong with bringing it up to the front of the line again.

                    Sorry to take this post to this length but honestly, I have run into this problem more than once and would like to get a better understanding of why? Because in my mind there is nothing wrong with it or it is really not that big a deal.

                    I have had many good experiences with this and other forums but I have come across those that just post "Don't do that, itis rude" after I had an unanswered post go for over a week and to top it off, not answer my question. So how is that helping?

                    Again, looking for insight, not challenging. BTW I do not want this post to get out of hand especially with it being offtopic of the original post so I will leave you with the above and view any comments.

                    Thanks again
