Tip: When making your overworld, mix the terrain up! Angled land and multiple colors looks much more interesting than square land and plain colors.Not logged in.
“Not secure”
Forum Index - Valley of Bowser - Site Questions & Feedback - “Not secure”
Pages: « 1 »
Not sure why when you are at the homepage, the address bar on the browser says that the page is “not secure”:


--------------------
Give thanks to RPG hacker for working on Asar.
Because of Sinc's site #smrpg{argh}



This thread is insecure now too.

--------------------
Twitter
On a technical explaination: SMWC uses HTTPS which on its own is more secure than HTTP. However, parts of the site still can be insecure (hence "not fully secure") if images (such as the VGM Guessing logo) and other embedded stuff are linked to a HTTP website or a HTTPS site with an invalid certificate instead to a certified HTTPS site.

--------------------
Okay, my layout looks ugly.
Is there no place on SMWC to host that image on so that doesn't happen? #smw{o_O?}
It's a simple matter of changing http:// to https:// to make the image secure again

No, it's not. First of all, the site has to support HTTPS in the first place (most common servers such as Apache and Nginx do allow you to use HTTPS connections and even force them with redirections if set up correctly) and Browsers still may have trouble if the connections is uncertified or the certificate ran out.

Edit: Added more information about HTTPS and the webserver.

I thought it was simple for every site, but inputting https:// does lead to a potential risk of safety page in this case. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
