Hello all you fine creatures, except Faded. He's not fine.

As you probably didn't notice, embedded images can now have funky encoded URLs. This is because you have not embedded them as https, either because your image host doesn't support it or because you couldn't be bothered. In this case, another server proxies the image and caches it with Cloudflare so it doesn't affect our SSL compliance.

Example: https://nulledbb.com/c/fddd930ad69a505d3...tqmbtg.jpg

If you already embed images with https, don't worry about this.

If you use a host like Imgur but don't embed using https links. Don't worry also, it will just convert your links to https for you instead sending it to a proxy. This will become the case for the majority of hosts out there in the near future, we have to populate a list of supported domains first.  :noh:



If you know any popular image hosts (or file hosts that support direct image viewing) that support valid SSL/HTTPS, please message me them. 

To check a host, upload an image and go to the image URL. If it's already https, great. If it isn't, change it to https and see if you can view the image with no security warnings. The https in the URL should be green.



In the event a smart boy (or girl?) out there uses an IP logger disguised as an image, and attempts to boot the proxy. Don't worry, all images are cached with Cloudflare. Only newly added/embedded images will not be shown. This doesn't affect the forum, it's a totally different server. Oh and it's bound to happen, people still try to attack our mail server.  :spooky:

If it does cause a problem, it'll just be disabled until I can be bothered looking at it. So please, if you're a skid.. Leave it be for a while so I can chill yh? many thanks.

Glad that change was made.
I honestly have this weird annoyance when the ssl lock turns grey.
Nice job on that c:
