Well done Feline.
How can we completely convert a site to https ?
Do we need to redirect old http URLs to https via .htaccess ?

Best way ..

1) make a full backup of your database
2.) make a full backup of all forum files
3) edit all links in the database file (eg. global find / replace "http://your.forum" with "https://www.your.forum")
   Note: this can be perfect make with a editor like notepad
4) create a new database
5) load the changed backup in this new database
6) now setup https (change the boardurl in the Settings.php)
7) put the new database name in the Settings.php

start your https forum

Now make all need changes in the Admin section

PS: I don't known if this works with a vanilla SMF 2.0.xx and/or PortaMx extension

This procedure I made with our PortaMx Forum

Many thanks Feline... Seems pretty complicated and time consuming with a 700 MB big SQL database... :o

Will you do some of the following features also:
1. How can we add Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, GooglePlus and a few other Share buttons under each post ?
( would also be cool to force users to share it on Facebook or twitter after the first post to see the rest of the page...
so the topic is always shared on Social Media and generates traffic back to the site...)
2. Can we have banner ads each 5th or 7th posting on a page automatically ? ( I don´t want to use an ads plugin...)

Many thanks.

P.S.

1. Do you have an explanation somewhere how to upgrade from SMF 2.0.13 with ProtaMX 1.54 to PortaMX Forum without loosing any data ?

2. is it possible to use ALL the Admin functions also on Mobile for PortaMX Forum ? So can I moderate users and edit things also on the Mobile
phone ?

3. Do you have also Sitemaps for all the forum postings and also Mobile sitemap ?

4. Do you have a gallery so we can upload many pictures and this will be shown in some kind of slideshow ?

Same question as every year  ???

1. No
2. No

We develope a FORUM, not a social media huddel-duddle ..
If you need that, you can add that yourself !

1. The (integrated) Portal create new Tables. But the old PortaMx tables are NOT dropped, so you can get the content from these Tables to create the Blocks you need.

2. Yes .. with a 7 inch tablet (as example) you can administrate you forurm and the Portal. On smaller devices it's a little bit complicated (to small for may data), but also possible.
Note, the we NOT use a responsive design, so you can switch to desctop view on a mobile device, if you need that.

3. No. If you need that, you can create one by yourself ...

4. Yes .. I think, you have see this here  :) .. we have Lightbox integrated

Do you support somehow a child theme like in Wordpress, so if I make changes to the Main template, and it comes an update,
so that I don´t have to do the changes again after the update ?

Okay, you say, these features I requested are huddle Doudle, but I think many users would like to have it for commercial
use of the forum to support their work with better ads payments etc.. and bring automatic traffic from Facebook and Twitter....

I am just working on a different project via Wordpress and I see, how hard it is nowadays to bring your website to page 1
on Google in a competative niche and now only traffic counts and how many hits you will get from Social Media...

So a few traffic generation tatics would be very useful....
Many thanks for thinking about this...

Regards, Stefan.

Do you think the RC 1.03 version would be stable enough to use it on overunity.com with over 700 MB Database and over 60 GB of files ??

I just saw an error on this forum.
I wanted to edit one of my last postings here and when I tried to save the posting, there came up the message:

"Numeric request keys are invalid."

I wanted to add to my last posting:

and I see, how hard it is nowadays to bring a website to page 1

Well .. I don't use Twitter or Facebook .. I hate it.
I'm a pure Google fan .. so I have all in one Hand .. mobile, desctop .. mail and news, Google+, Games, Music, Images etc. etc.
For what I need Twitter or Facebook ? Simple .. for nothing.
I communicate via Hangout with my friends .. simple, quick and easy

I can not give any garantie that this will work .. you can run in a timeout.
So if you will do that, make a backup from ALL data before you start this work.
Also you have to note, that our Forum is a RELEASE CANDIDATE .. not the final version.
It's allways possible, that we have bugs inside, they we not see or found ...

Would you do customisations of the PortaMX forum for money payments ?

Or if you don´t have time to do this, would you help to provide tips how to do my customisations I would like to have
like a banner ad inserted every 5th posting or under the user thumbnail picture as a skyscrape banner like 160x600 pixels ?

Now again, when you have already typed your answer, I got when trying to quote your message and answer:

Numeric request keys are invalid.

Now then also the board was not found...

An Error Has Occurred
The board you specified doesn't exist

I wanted to say:

I am also a Google Fanboy, you are correct ! ;) :D
But almost all my Friends are only using Facebook nowadays and Google Plus is unfortunately
dead.. .I also don´t use Twitter, but it seems to be good for traffic and Google checks it also for link juice...

I need SEO optimisation and bring my sites to the top of the Google Index and nowadays you can only do this via good traffic...
