Given that a https:// certificate is pretty much a must these days, I think giffgaff should change the code of their banners accordingly.

 

Of course, when clicked, the link takes to the https:// version of the giffgaff site (giffgaff's own redirections), however those who put the banners on their own website still need to swap "http" in  "img src" to  "https" - if they forget to do so, the browser will tell their visitors that the page is not secure.

Supported.

I'd go further and make sure all external functions are under the giffgaff domain, (those which are integral to the forum, not those added by posters obviously.), as the forum is supposed to be fully inclusive but thanks to external scripts and such like, it's just not.

I wasn't aware of this so thanks. I'll edit the code on my websites when I get a sec to add the "s".
