Switch to HTTPS

Postby jacargo » Sat Nov 15, 2014 8:21 pm

Hello.

In a long-overdue move to imrpove security and user privacy, we are implement SSL (HTTPS). From now on, use https://www.mariskahargitay.org/ to access the galleries and message board. This encrypts what's sent and received between your browser and our web server.

In addition, I've also purchased a site certificate to confirm that the site you are visiting is ours. For right now, there is a self-signed certificate, which means if you access the site using https, you'll get a warning. Just continue on. The order for the site certificate should be processed and in place on Monday, November 17, 2014.

Update 2: I noticed that there's a problem viewing images over HTTPS. I don't know why yet and am working on it.

Update 3: Fixed the image display problem by changing the .htaccess file to include https.

Right now, we are not enforcing https. You can still visit the galleries and board using http, but I strongly recommend using https from now on.

Thanks John! I get it, the 's' on Http means it's secure...You've taught me well! LOL/JK John, it this true for both galleries also? Did you change the link buttons on those galleries so they will use the new secure links instead of the 'older ones' Jordy built?

SSL applies to everything in mariskahargitay.org.

Also, for those concerned about unsecure content on the board, it is only referring to the tv episode banner displayed at the top of the page. Everything else is via SSL provided you access the site via https.

Bear in mind, we currently don't enforce https.

John, I'm using it since the 16yh & have no trouble with the pix in either gallery. I use Windows, laptops!
