Geocaching Australia 'Secure' URL: https://geocaching.com.au

Post by CraigRat » 12 March 18 1:14 pm

By popular demand, and also because we were going to have to by mid-year anyway, Geocaching Australia is now using 'secure' https.

Our proper URL now is https://geocaching.com.au but fear not, the old url still works for the site and forums and automatically re-routes it for you.

While we had it on good advice that this was a simple change, it was a bit more technical (as I expected) thanks to some of our non in-house software, taking about 4 hours to fix up properly.

I think all the bugs have been ironed out. Let us know via here or at https://geocaching.com.au/support if anything is broken!

Is this why GA Cacher started reporting"Error connecting to Website: Moved Permanently" today?

Yes, I've contacted mtrax to let him know. My bad.

I received a response from him this morning ....
"I've pushed out a change to support the new https URL it should be available shortly"
So all good.

How do I update my chrome settings, or whatever I need to update, to allow the LGA and dZ map layers to show... on the map of course? It keeps blocking me and I just tried allowing almost everything in the settings for the site.

Thanks No_Tomorrow

I noticed this earlier today but being at work I can't fix it until I got home. It should be working now.
