Move from HTTP to HTTPS

HPFT has finally gotten with the modern times and moved from http://hpfanfictalk.com to https://hpfanfictalk.com.

-Both the archives and the forums are using https now.

-Please update any bookmarks you have.

-There's a chance you'll have to clear your cache.

-If you have images (banners, sigs, etc) that have an http URL, it would be helpful to your fellow members' browsing experiences if you could update them to an https URL.

This change means the ugly notices your browser gives you about HPFT not being secure should be going away now. The exception is going to be on pages where there is mixed content, meaning content that is being served from http rather than https. I have updated everything HPFT-side I could find (images, fonts, site clock), but some of you have banners and signatures and such out there that have an http URL. If you visit a page that has one of those on it, you'll still get a warning--only now it'll be about part of the page not being secure rather than the whole website. :P

Let us know if you encounter issues that are different than normal and that don't go away after clearing your cache.
