https://fleetlists.busaustralia.com/indbusdata.php?requesttype=&reqtype= I suspect this is being caused if the URL for the search does not contain an s where shown in red.

I have asked our systems person to investigate this as a a matter of urgency.

This appears to be unexpected issue with the Fleet List code while using a secure connection to the server.

Until this code is updated this error will occur when connected via https as the search form is yet to be updated.

The automatic redirect to secured connection has been reverted until the code is updated

If you have any issues with the Queensland section, please send me a private message.

Before putting your foot in your mouth you should ascertain what the actual problem is.

Internet browsers are updating their software to increase security for users, requiring sites that use passwords to send the password across the internet by a secure connection (https instead of standard http). In consultation with me, Matthew (PRT 065) enabled this setting on the server yesterday. We tested to see it didn't cause any issues and everything we tested worked fine. Unfortunately one thing we didn't check was the fleet list search. As Matthew has said, he has disabled the https temporarily until the search code can be corrected. If anyone else noticed any other problems, please let us know.

gen man, I'm sure you would be the first one to complain if you received an error message saying that your password is being sent across an unsecured connection.

Matthew does a lot of work behind the scenes that goes unappreciated, so it would be nice if people could post in a nicer manner than the 2 complainers in this thread. Thanks.

Unfortunately his communication to those that need to know has been very lacking in recent years, causing lots of frustration when trying to access and/or update lists. Hopefully this improves in the future.

That's a fair point, I'll try and get things improved in that regard.
