    Good afternoon, My site Huskermat.com is hosted through SS and I was wondering what I would need to do to enable an SSL for my site. I understand that at the end of the month Google Chrome will display the message that the site is unsafe if an SSL is not enabled. What would I need to do to resolve this issue? Thanks--Ross

    I would like to enable SSL for my site: http://members.thegrantscollective.org

    Hello, As Google has made SSL necessary, may I know how I can enable SSL on SS hosted website? Also, let me know the procedure to automatically renew the certificate as it gets expired in the period of three months.

    I just got a phone call from someone saying my SSL Certificate for Hoop.La expires soon, and trying to sell me something. Is this something that will happen? What to do?

    I still see .. There is no SSL installed on your site .. As Lori said .. It might be complicated for you .. But if you are using WordPress then I would suggest you go with Really Simple SSL plugin. It's amazing .. You don't need any kind of coding .. Just install the plugin and get it done ..

    I guess I'd have to ask my site designer if I use that? My site is kind of old but it still works lol

    Hi, Ross: We can do that for you for free! We use Let's Encrypt, per this article we posted last fall. Before we actually switch it over to SSL, you'll want to update any http resources you have on the site to https. For example, any external JavaScript, CSS, images, etc that are currently loading http:// should be changed to https://. Once you've checked the site and made those changes, let us know, and we'll make the switch. Let me know if you have any questions! Lori

    Hi @neil , all of the links within Hoop.la, and external links TO your Hoop.la site, will just work magically. However, you would want to check your header, footer, any custom CSS, ad slots, images or videos from an external source, etc., for anything loading http:// and change it to https://.

    Neil, we run banner ads in our Hoopla forum served from an outfit called "Adpeeps.com." When we first made the Hoopla change to https, the banners did not appear. The browser would not display a mix of "secure" and "non-secure" content. All I had to do was go into the Adpeeps code and add the "s" where appropriate and all was OK. Adpeeps now generates code that contains "https" so the problem has solved itself on both ends. External LINKS appeared just fine, even though the link was going to...

    Thanks Rich and Rosemary. We have a ton of links embedded by users in their posts. Are you saying all those would need to be changed ? <- 1st time ever using the exploding sausage/balloon

    @neil , the process to enable TLS/SSL will automatically update your community URLs (including embedded image attachments, etc.) to use SSL. Any external URLs will not be updated, however, as Hoop.la can't make any guarantees about whether those external data sources support HTTPS or not. Note that this would only be an issue for embedded content; any external URL links wouldn't be an issue. Does that help?

    Thanks for clarifying, Brian. Our "embedded" content consists almost entirely of https youtube (iframe) so we should be okay. What's the next step for authorizing and getting this done?

    Thanks for the updates Ted and crew. Regarding: "Extract Improvement: we now filter out quoted text from content extracts to make the extracts more readable." Can you explain this one a little more?
  • Blog Post Comment
    Hi @neil ! That just means that when Hoop.la generates automated extracts of posts (e.g. for showing recent replies in the topic list), Hoop.la will now strip out any quoted text (i.e. text in a blockquote ). This will give more focus to the actual post/reply/comment that was made.

    Hi Gary, Your Hoop.la site doesn't have SSL, so there is no SSL certificate to be worried about (and if there was, we would have notified you about it). Do you have any other websites that have SSL enabled that the call could have been about? If not, it may have been a spam phone call. Hope that helps! Brian

    Great. They specifically mentioned the Hoop.La site. Please mark this answered. Thanks.

    Interesting. It was probably just a sales pitch trying to get you to buy a cert (whether you need it or not). Have a great day!

    Hi Tara, Thank you for your contact! We have now enabled SSL on your site. You will notice that the site will now respond to https://members.thegrantscollective.org . However, to get a padlock, showing that the site is fully secured, all the elements on the page (like images) will have to be using https too. I believe that is not the case with the banner on the top of your site. If you change that, you should be able to get the padlock beside the URL of your site (like you see if you go to...

    Hi Paulo, Which banner are you referring to? Thanks! Tara & Erin
  • Support Topic Reply
    Hi all, This one: The address that the image loads from (not the link it leads to) starts with http://members.thegrantscollec....org/ws/masthead5_.. . and it should be https. The destination link can stay as it is, although if you want you can change that too. Regards, Paulo

    Hi Paulo, that file doesn’t appear to be in our Web Space (all of the files in WS are https) — are you able to tell where it’s loading from? Thanks for your help! Tara
  • Support Topic Reply
    Hi Paulo - I figured it out (under Home Page Settings) and corrected it. We now have the padlock. Thanks again for all your help. Tara

    Hi Tara! Thank you for the update! I'm glad all got sorted. I had to step out yesterday, so I could not get back to you sooner. Best regards, Paulo

    If I understand this correctly, all the items that are presently on our site (TravelGumbo.com) with http:// will automatically convert to https:// but it will not change external links embedded in blogs, etc. If I am correct, what will happen if someone clicks on a Tweet, or a link somewhere else, that contains http://travelgumbo.com/blog/whatever ? Will it automatically route to https://travelgumbo.comc/blog/whatever ? If not, what can we do to make that happen?

    Hi Paul, You are correct. All requests will be redirected automatically to a secure connection. If you enter http://www.socialstrata.com on your browser, it will redirect you to a secure connection. Incoming links from other sites work the same way.
