SSL Mixed content warning
« on: January 09, 2016, 09:31:17 pm »
I had been noticing an SSL mixed content warning on the forum for a few months. For some reason, I had been too lazy to fix it?  :-X

However, now that the site traffic is increasing and the @goldcoin Twitter is exploding, I decided it needed to be fixed. I opened a site page on Firefox and clicked "view page source". Then I searched the page for "http:" and found the culprit at the top of the page.

No one had ever reported the problem, but I think IE and Firefox were the only browsers that cried. Wonder why? lol. Anyway it's fixed. And it took me 10 times longer to write this post than it did to fix the problem.  :-[

Holy smokes!

I just realized that those fonts were being blocked since the inception of this theme.  8) And I had previously spent several hours compensating and tweaking the CSS to make the text render properly which would have been unnecessary had I fixed the root of the problem originally. Now, the CSS adjustments don't look right!  :'(

Tomorrow, I'll spend some time reverting to the original CSS and making things look better. Good night!
