I don't know what you mean by NO valid certificate and what does that have to do in welcoming people back here after this place went down.

Gad the forum is back but whenever I log onto the site, my antivirus gives an alert that there is a security problem. Possibly this refers to the earlier comment about a valid certificate?

I suppose this is just a glitch with the new server.

Yes I had that on my PC about this being a possible security hazard but I carried on as I didn't have that issue on my phone. Anyway glad this site is back up and running

The errors were from not having an SSL certificate installed on the site. The old site didn't have one either so I'm surprised people didn't see this before. I installed one tonight so everything is secure now and shouldn't be any more errors.

The forum is now running on the latest software. The theme we used to run hasn't been updated in years so it won't work anymore. This one seemed nice so we'll give this a try for a bit.

If there are any issues, feel free to post them here.

The old site worked on HTTP and just operated insecurely; this updated version redirects you to HTTPS, and it looked like it was picking up the bondagejunkies certificate, and producing a warning because it was for the wrong domain.

I've had the same problems, either it's off-line or security warnings. But have noticed it's now running HTTPS and everything working fine now.

Getting the feel of the new design.. kind of like the Bondage Forum mansion has a new altered 'floorplan' but at least all the 'rooms' are still here. :-D

That was probably the difference. I knew I was going to put SSL on the site and I didn't feel like rewriting the config for HTTP just to switch it back.

The forums are still present, but it appears that the embedded images are now gone.
Some were quite good and without them the threads have lost a lot.

Not all images are gone.
It appears that images that were embedded in the threads themselves are now all gone.
The sizes of images that could be embedded in the threads was quite small, so many people used external sites to host larger images and linked to them in the threads. THOSE images are still present.
I always embedded images in the threads because it meant nothing needed to be maintained, so anything I posted is gone.
I believe many others did the same.
This makes a few descriptions and many of the threads in the DIY area are now pretty much worthless.
