NukeWorker Encryption

(1/7) > >>

I'm working on converting the site over to an encrypted connection.  This means that you will get to see the nice green padlock type connection.

You can test it out here:

I have a long ways to go to get the whole site compliant.  When I made the site, I hard coded a lot of links to images, so now I have to check the 1000's of pages and change all the links, and try to figure out what else it might break.  However, when we are done, the whole site will be encrypted from stem to stern.


I have the home page locked down (as seen above) and I have the forum locked down (encrypted with SSL).

However, please note that if you post an image in the forum with "http" instead of "https" it will 'break' the beautiful lock.  The rest of the page is still encrypted, but that image isn't so it's not 100% locked down.  You can fix this by changing it to https if the image you are linking to supports it.

I'm slowly going through the site file by file (100,000's of files) and fixing them.  I tried doing a global search and replace and it rendered the site useless, forcing me to restore a backup one night.

There is a lot involved in this process, but I think it's worth it.

TLDR; When embedding images, use 'https' instead of 'http' if you can.

A see that a person having a yahoo IM screen name in their profile also embeds a non-encrypted image.  MY OCD is not going to like this.

The job board and photo gallery (and and) still needs to be updated.  I'm working on it.

Update:  Photo Gallery is updated.  Let me know if you have any problems with it.
