Strange... I never had this problem with the forum in 6 years...

Does it happen with just board notifications or post notifications also?

Seems just you ???
Tried with the beta board notification, and no https link ???

Weird it is happening to you...

good question: thing is that's only the second time and I don't remember if the last time was a board notification like today or a post in a subscribed thread...I posted that in the forums with the link and a screenshot too...gotta look for it...

That's right, the first one was a topic link.

I never use the notification emails, I have disabled that forum option.

I find it much easier just to click on the "Show new replies to your posts." link and that gets a list of all topics I have posted in.

See image, my forum Theme is set to the Babylon theme, which will be a different layout from most, but that link should be present in the other themes.

I get the same certificate warning if I try to view any part of the forums in the https format. I had been just using straight http. It says the certificate is not valid and recommends that I don't visit the site.

once you're ready to take the risk  ;D ...you can keep browsing the forum in https, no problem  ;) it's just a certificate that needs to be renewed or validated. Remains the question why do I get https links in my notifications and no one else does...I checked my profile settings here and there's nothing related to that.
