See if this helps:


Use the longer solution at the bottom (from Maiden_taiwan), not the
simplistic one at the top.

Is there a way to make user logins occur over TLS? Meaning when the user
clicks Login the protocol scheme is changed to https (if it is not
already) and then, after having successfully logged in, changed back to
what it was previously?
