All HTTPS, All The Time

I’ve finally implemented making the site entirely HTTPS for all content. I’ve wanted to make it work for a while, but it took a while to finally pull the trigger. That not only keeps Google happy, it should keep everyone happy. Ordinarily, a redirect is easy, but I have a lot of widgets and old content that had hard coded links I had to find and change. But it seems to be working OK now, and I get green in Chrome and Safari.

  1. Works well so far with Chrome and Firefox from here. Fortunately Let’s Encrypt makes life easy.

  2. I have noticed that, when I am signed in to a certain university’s guest wifi, that I couldn’t access your site: they filter their content for this access, and your site is filtered because it’s “Uncategorized”…

    But I just barely discovered that if I add that magic “s” to the end of “http”, I can access things!

    Which is a good thing, because social media sites are filtered out as well. (I may hate Facebook, but our symposium committee uses it for announcements and keeps a list of Google documents there.)

    I can’t help but wonder why “http” is filtered, but “https” is not….

    (And for all I know, there may even be good technical reasons to only filter “http” websites…)
