    forum.questionablequesting.com now unconditionally redirects all incoming HTTP requests to HTTPS. If anyone has any issues, please mention it here, or complain in the IRC channel.

    This breaks links to individual posts with http as the header.

    It shouldn't. Can you give an example?

    Exam

    Copied from my index. The bbc points to a single post using http. Clicking on the link only goes to the page, not the section.

    It redirects to https:// perfectly for me, both that link and manually going to the index and clicking the link there.

    Apparently its a safari specific bug, which only applies to http links being redirected to https.
