Forum now HTTPS
« on: January 18, 2014, 05:55:51 pm »
This site's been optionally HTTPS for a while now. I flipped the switch to make the site HTTPS by default early Saturday. Shouldn't cause any issues, but if you notice anything, let us know.

The automatic redirect with stuff after the domain itself is missing the /

eg:
http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?action=unreadreplies
is rewritten to:
https://forum.pfsense.orgindex.php/?action=unreadreplies
We do what we must, because we can.

Woohoo!  Thanks.  I had written a custom rule in HTTPS Everywhere, but defaulting this is best.

HTTPS Everywhere has built-in rules for *.pfsense.org sites that support HTTPS (most, but not yet all, non-download sites default that way now). I submitted a pull request to HTTPS Everywhere a few weeks ago to update their built-in list, which was merged.
