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.
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...
@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?
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.
Hello Colleen Your DNS folks can handle this change easily. Whoever controls the boldsociety.org domain can make this change https://assets.socialstrata.co...;customer=Crittenton Choose option A. You will also need to obtain an SSL certificate, perhaps also through your domain provider. There is also a "free" SSL provide called Let's Encrypt https://letsencrypt.org/ Let us know the direction you're taking there and we'll get specific instructions ready.
Hello Colleen I was talking to the OPS team and if you wish we can handle the SSL certificate for you once you have the domain squared away. We can issue the Let's Encrypt certificate on your behalf once the DNS is set up and pointing to Hoop.la. You *may* have special SSL needs from your IT department. In this case, we will need the certificate in the "Apache" format. They will know what that means. Let me know as things develop. BTW -- feel free to use this ticket system for questions.
Hi Colleen, We have to make the change on our side due to the SSL certificate generation. We've generated a Let's Encrypt SSL certificate for boldsociety.org for now, and we've changed the site's domain. You can now see it in action here: https://www.boldsociety.org Let us know if you see any issues or if there's anything else you need! Thanks, Brian
Hi Kelby, You have a false positive with your SSL (Secure Socket Layer) on the following.site; hisadvocates.org After testing,some users may experience a warring page and asked to make an exception to the website. Others will still have access to the pages and or website but instead of having a green lock icon confirming safety, they will see a yellow caution symbol and depending on the browser, a brief message informing the user the site may be unsafe. The two options I'm aware of to fix...
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
Note: if you proceed, you will no longer be following .
