Migrating to https

Google Maps, Geocaching, and WordPress all prefer HTTPS as default now, Google Maps has even begun reducing functionality in their API unless HTTPS is used by the consuming web site.  Therefore we’ve begun migrating the entire BCaching web site over to HTTPS as well.

The mobile apps are still using the BCaching API via HTTP, so that will remain available, but all browser-based use of the web site will be switched over.

We are using LetsEncrypt for our 100% free auto-renewing SSL certificate. See https://letsencrypt.org/ for more details.

We are currently testing functionality at https://test.bcaching.com. Feel free to use that if you’d like and let us know if you encounter any trouble.
