Web Authentication not using HTTPS by default?

Am I just looking at things incorrectly, or does this forum not use HTTPS/SSL when authenticating user's username/passwords for logon by default?

I see that it's possible to manually enter https:// at the beginning of the URL to bring up a HTTPS site, but even then the entire site isn't showing as fully secure. If I manually type in HTTPS:// in the URl, is the username/password encrypted then?

Feature Request: Have the forums redirect users to HTTPS and insure username/password are all sent securely.

Casey,

Thanks for expressing your concern about securing your log-in activity to our public forums.

We're looking into the possibility of forcing/redirecting to HTTPS for forum log-in actions and will post here when we have a complete answer for you.

It'd be best to use SSL for everything to avoid leaking session cookies.

FYI,

As of today, forum-specific pages are now redirected automatically through to https://forums.vandyke.com/, including log-ins.
