HTTPS / SSL

#1
Hello all, 

We have enabled HTTPS/SSL security for the entire MS community. We ended up using Certbot (as suggested by Thomas and S3_gunzel) - which massively simplified the process compared to the failed attemps for us to do so before. Everything worked without a hitch.

   

The site should be much more secure on public networks and will no longer display the "not secure" message on Chrome. It is also faster (HTTP/2.0) than before. That being said, we had to change a number of CSS/JS/Image URLs througout the theme, so there might have been a couple we missed. If anything looks incorrect or you get a "mixed content" error, let us know in this thread and we will address it promptly! 

Regards, 
-Makestation

Yep, we've got SSL at last! Cool

MS should be noticeably faster as well. I did some optimizations on linked resources tonight, and as it turns out, we were loading quite a bit of excess javascript and CSS and it was slowing the website down. According to stats and analyzers, we've sped up the site's load time by nearly 2x, so pages should load considerably more quickly now.

It's very quick on my laptop - although, I never had any speed issues on here to begin with, so I probably wouldn't notice Tongue .

This is great! Looks like the logo is still being loaded over HTTP though.

Does this issue persist on another theme or browser? It's loading on HTTPS for me, but it's possible we missed something in one of the alt themes. I'm gonna guess it's probably just a cache issue from the stylesheet (as Ben mentioned), but I'll do some further digging and look into it to make sure.

Thank you for the report! I think I’ve discovered why it’s wrong, it’s related to one of the old settings that still affects the child themes. Will fix shortly.
