SSL OS/2world
« on: January 23, 2018, 11:40:54 pm »
While the postings on os2world.com are not really that secret. Is OS2WORLD.COM going to use SSL encryption ?
As in the near future web browsers such as Firefox will warn if a website does not use SSL. It might scare away users... Just a thought...

Hi Roderick

I had read the news and I'm also concerned about this topic. I had chatted with the webmaster to check what are the options.

I have no idea about this subject or what are the required steps to get the ssl certificate, I also need to learn more about it.

Whoever looks after the server needs to install it :)

Hi

Kim (the webmaster) just installed an ssl certificate.

On the main page the firefox warning says that some parts of the site are insecure. I will check on that. Possible because I take parts of the forum and wiki on the main page.
On the forum it is working fine. The firefox warning says it is secure.
On the wiki it also says that parts of the site are insecure. But it also broke the layout of the page. I also got to check on that.

Hi.

I pinpointed the problem on the SSL's main page.

There is the block that says "Latest Forum Posts" if I turn it off the encryption padlock will turn green.

The warning on the console says:
"Loading mixed (insecure) display content “https://www.os2world.com/components/com_jfusion/images/new.png” on a secure page"

It is the "New" png file from the JFusion component that I use to merge users from Joomla, MediaWiki and SMFForum.

I'm checking my options here. Suggestions are welcome.

Hi Martin. I'm getting a "Insecure information on this page was blocked" with buttons for "Keep blocking", "Unblock" and "Preferences" thingie at the top of this page with SeaMonkey and the padlock is yellow. The Error Console has this (for the Warp 3 Beep page),

That plane image is from other forum user. It seems that on his profile he is linking an image from another site. I will check if I had to block that on the forum script.

Ok, I fixed that. I found that the plugins was pointing to http: instead of https: Now the on the main OS2World site the padlock is green.

The same thing applied for the wiki. I changed the configuration script to point to https:// and now it looks fine.
Now I will have to see why it points to some CreativeCommons in http://

This forum also has a broken link to:
Code: [Select]
https://opi.yahoo.com/online?u=martiniturbide&m=g&t=0
Some referrers should be changed. But I think most users block the annoying tracking of this pages.

Now this page shows up more insecure in Firefox and is no longer useable with Netscape. A migration from "World" to village happened.

Hi Dave, it seems to be the social network plugin of the SMFForum. I will look arround for some update.

Is all this tracking needed? Unless it is providing you revenue, perhaps it could all just be gotten rid of.

Hi Dave.

The social network plugin was not for tracking. It is just to make "Like", "Tweet" or "+1" on each post. I had just disabled it since I didn't find a new version. It seems to me that was not used also.
