View Full Version : trouble accessing forum
07-25-2011, 04:57 PM
When I access this site--------I get a window showing that part of the data may not be delivered clean (may be contaminated)----------do I want to access only the part that is determined to be clean-----or not.
When I click on "yes" to access only the safe information-----------I am not able to pull up the formatted part of the ACMOC site----------looks like I am pulling up a skeletal outline of the site.
The only way I gain access to the full format is to click on "No" in regards to accessing only the safe content.
Is this something coming from the ACMOC site-----------or possibly something else in regards to my computer. Only site I pick this window up on is ACMOC.
Helllllllpppppppp?????? I definitely don't feel comfortable clicking on the acceptance of possibly contaminated data----------I create enough computer problems on my own.:jaw:

I'm getting the same also.....just started recently in about the last week or so.

I'm having the same problem, it started last Wednesday for me. If I log out and then back in it clears up for just that one instance. As soon as I navigate away and then back again the problem reoccurs.
I've been away from the computer since yesterday morn. I will forward the info to Megan and see what she finds. Sorry fellas.

If you're using Firefox for a browser, you might try going to Tools at the top of the page, click on Options and check the box that says "Block popups". There's a similar setup in the IE browser.
Check the URL and see if it says HTTPS instead of HTTP. We recently adjusted the main site to use HTTPS (secure) login to better protect your user details. The BB doesn't force you to use HTTPS, but if you got here from the main site, it may come up that way.
Internet Explorer has an annoying pop-up box that alerts you that some of the content may not have been delivered securely. This has to do with the way the BB is pulling in files like images and styling. It doesn't necessarily mean there's a security problem.
Two ways to fix it:
1) Change the HTTPS to HTTP when you're on the BB
2) In IE, go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Security tab and click the button for Custom Level. Scroll a little over midway down through all the options and look for one that says "Display Mixed Content". Change it so it's "Enable" instead of "Prompt".

Re: check the URL for HTTPS vs. HTTP
How do I find URL????
I am probably more computer illiterate than you are with the tractors and lawnmowers--------Is there any problem/dangers with clicking "No" on the pop up window and continuing forward???
Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi Delta Dirt,
Went through the drill as recommended and it took care of the problem....which should not have been a problem in the first place.
The URL is the site name in the box at the very top of the page.

I'm experiencing the same issue and checked my settings under the Tools drop down and mine were already set to enable so that doesn't appear to be the fix in this case. Hopefully somebody comes up with a fix, it's not a big issue just an annoyance. Thanks.
Send me a PM with the exact description of what happened when you attempt to log in. Thanks.

Still getting the same pop up window---------with URL set as http or https. Also checked to see that pop up blocker is enabled ("on").
DD and Bryan, can you please list the browser you are using. Thanks.

I am using Internet Explorer----------my wife says that is a MicroSoft product???
In watching the URL (after I have learned what that meant):smokin:--------I see once I click on "no" on the pop up window; ----------------the http version is what I am actually accessing the board on.
I have tried accessing the home page via both http and https---------get the same pop up window (basically-------saying some of the information delivered on this site may not be safe; do I want to receive only the safe info-----click yes or no). I believe the home page is coming up as https----------regardless of which version I enter???
Then the only way I can gain access is by clicking the "no"------meaning I am willing to accept "un-safe" info????
DD, as Megan implied earlier, the pop up is a pesky feature from the browser. You are not receiving questionable material. In order to be a certified website, we needed to pass some security scans. We accept credit cards for payment on memberships and merchandise, so it is neccesary to qualify. We have since passed the certification process. As a result, we now have these silly pop-ups. Megan has been working on the problem. Hopefully we can resolve it without too much inconvenience.

I'm also using Windows Internet Explorer, I have no pop-up issue when using Safari on my wifes Apple. Thanks.
Hmm I have some ideas...when I get back in the office tomorrow, one of them will turn into a solution. :)

Not to add to the confusion but I use Firefox as a browser, the 'puter is using Windows XP Pro with all the updates and I have no problems since I checked the box to block popups in Tools > Options > Content > Block Popups quite some time ago.

I see the problem has cleared up this past week, thanks to who ever worked on it.
Glad to hear it Bryan!
It may not be a permanent solution, but that definitely proves that the additional security features were causing the problem.
