Just noticed that all the pages on my site are secure.

Interesting. On my site, the home page can be https - if I use the CC long name, but beyond some of the admin pages, that's the only page that is secure since it reverts to the domain name for access to all the rest.

We have started the transition for sites without domains. The sites with domains will be receiving an option this week to secure their site with their own domain if they wish. If an admin chooses that option their entire site will be secured by their own domain replacing any instances of our secure certificate that is in place now.

For those who have a domain the option will appear under the Admin Functions > Manage Domain page. It is there now, however, the first round of installations will likely be the end of this coming week after the notice goes out to all domain holders.

I commented about that a while ago. IOW, your site has been that way for some time. HTTPS was possible for a long time. It'a why I wrote the script that modifies the URLs to https. That's all CC did Smile

One has to be aware of the change though since some things may no longer work. SHOULD have been posted in the forum.

CC still has not fixed the reference to the bottom images, so your home page shows as not secure in FF but OK in rest. Don't know if that type of thing will be allowed in the future. There are some changes in the browsers since only a month ago in this area. FF now shows non-https images in a https URL. They used to not allow that.

I think all the long CC names are now https - but you have use it for access to start. But once you click a link, they are all now https.

This part controls on the bottom of the page source

If the base_rul says https, then it stays that way.

I noticed 'my' site is https, but three other class sites that I am member of from our school are simply www.

{Wish I was 'more educated' on this stuff!}

Hi Steve,

We have always secured the pages that historically needed to be secured (join, sign-in, admin functions, member functions and anywhere credit cards were entered using our secure certificate. Browsers started tagging all pages of the site individually as secure or not secure making it necessary to secure all pages of the site even if the page does not collect contact for credit card information.

Many site administrators have domains and want to be able to secure their entire site with their own domain rather than our secure domain so they can keep their site branded identity throughout the site. We had some reworking to do in order to accommodate that option. We are launching the option this coming week - a notice will go out to all administrators with a domain name. If a site has a domain name they will see details about the options under their Admin Functions > Manage Domain page. For sites that choose to their own secure certificate it will replace out certificate throughout their entire site including their join, sign-in, admin/member functions and credit card pages.
