Sounds like it may be a local issue with your device, or the wireless network you are connecting to is blocking access to the cog URL. This is most likely when using an employers network. 


Using wifi instead of direct connect does not effect a web server from serving up pages. I routinely connect to both the member portal and forum via wifi without issue on mobile devices (phone and tablet) and laptop.


Anyone else experiencing issues connecting to the COG pages?  Which part? The forum or the member portal/calendar?

I was finally able to connect through wifi. A red triangle with an exclamation point is showing saying that the COG site is not secure. Not sure why.

Bad SSL certificate config

WIN 7 Pro
Firefox 57

when I assert https:// on the forum/site.

Gong to the paywall for events, it's OK! :great:

Not necessary bad SSL cert... it's just a notification that the page being accessed is not using SSL. As noted, the payment gateway is secure.

Login credentials being sent in the clear for the forum and Membership page, then if we aren't SSL on those pages.

... Another good reason to for the move away from the current platform provider. Many express concern, few offer support to assist.

I'm really busy with 5G now.......just like you are busy Steve with what ever you are doing. That pays the bills. I am looking forward to the migration and the work that has been done to make that happen. It is appreciated, but this is a hobby for me.

Sorry Craig - was not trying to ruffle your feathers. There are ~1500 members and it feels like its always the same volunteers who do the work.
