Thanks to Chris Pelzer for looking in to an issue with the WordPress admin area which was serving up a few assets that were hard coded not to use the secure certificate.
Why did this happen?
WordPress itself does a very good job of ensuring the security of all of its pages but unfortunately we can’t say the same for the plugin developers out here. We take advantage of many plugins to make the blog publishing process as painless as possible. Some of those plugins don’t handle secure certificates correctly by default so we had to go in and hand edit them to be as secure as possible.
What does this mean for you?
In some browsers you will no loner get the warning about insecure content on the page. You can rest assure that everything you type is encrypted no matter where you are writing your blog posts.
We made a minor change to the default settings for lightbox2. By default the “Shrink large images to fit smaller screens” setting will be turned on now. This was a retroactive change, so all blogs should now have this setting turned on. If you’d like to turn it off, the setting is available to you in the left column > Settings > Lightbox2.
Sharing information is important and we want to give the Wayne State community every opportunity possible to publish and share their every day life. We set up this blogging platform to do just that.
