Every time I switch pages a pop up tells me the new page contains both secure and non secure items and asks if I want to display the non-secure. Very annoying.
The fourth paragraph of the terms and conditions seems to say that if I post a problem and someone provides and answer, I cannot use that answer to solve a client's problem without getting written permission from Caterpillar. Clarification would be useful.
Likewise the "submissions to Caterpillar" paragraph seems to say that Caterpillar could consider anything posted as a "submisson to Caterpillar" unless possibly the post contained words saying that it does not constitute a submission to Caterpillar.

This is a valid issue you've brought up.
The reason that you're seeing those error messages is that there are images on the pages in these forums which are not "referred to" by this website's server code properly using the https format.
This is an example of coding errors in this forum application which are easily resolved by simply recoding the urls which refer to the images displaying on these pages using the proper https format instead of http.
This IS a security vulnerability because the embedded images may contain malicious scripts which could compromise security of visitors and admins of these forums.
I suggest strongly that this issue is addressed ASAP.
Otherwise the forums are great!

Yes mine is doing this as well. Would be nice to have a fix. My work laptop didn't do this earlier today when signing up but my home computer does it. No check box is available to 'not show this again'.

Issue should be resolved now. Everyone refresh the browser and try accessing the page again.
No more security pop-ups should be come up. If this continues, please reply in this thread.
