[Request Name]
Upgrade MD5 password hashing and route traffic over HTTPS

[Description]
MyEpisodes still uses MD5 hashing for passwords. While it is good that passwords are hashed, this algorithm is not safe anymore and really needs to be replaced.

Additionally SSL is currently not enforced although there is a valid certificate. Enforcing SSL is pretty common nowadays and I would suggest that this step is taken as well.

[Target URL]
Every page of the site.

[Comments]
Enforcing SSL is very easy to implement since there is already a valid certificate present. Changing the hashing algorithm is a bit more annoying, but there are clear instructions of how to implement this online: https://security.stackexchange.com/questions/90561/how-to-replace-an-old-password-hashing-method-with-a-newer-one-in-software

I hope you'll find time to make this change to future-proof the site a bit more. I'm a big fan and would love to keep using it for many years to come.

you might want to at something like:
Code:
   RewriteEngine on
   RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,QSA,R=permanent]


into your virtual host configuration (depending on what server you use, this one works for apache and rewrites the url from http:// to https:// )

I think that supporting https is enough - and if someone doesn't want to use please let them be.
(and if you want for your browser to automatically redirect you to https just use HttpsEveryoner or similar)
