As many of you have noticed, UER is served over plain-old, unencrypted HTTP. Over the past few years there has been a trend to push SSL to many popular sites (and most can admit this is a popular site).
Unfortunately, UER still seems behind the times, especially considering that Let's Encrypt provides free certificates to enable this capability not to mention plethora of community scripts for most major web servers (e.g. IIS on which this site is hosted).
Furthermore, many browsers now display a warning for non-SSL logins (as in the case of UER).
And to end on a hilarious note, just this week: https://arstechnic...gin-page-insecure/
