  1. I would like to +1 this. It appears that both Mozilla https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2016/10/24/distrusting-new-wosign-and-startcom-certificates/ and Google https://security.googleblog.com/2016/10/distrusting-wosign-and-startcom.html have distrusted StartCom and Wosign SSL certificates. Let's Encrypt is the most secure and recommend provider for free certificates. This would be a very good to have feature if it isn't too expensive/complex to implement.
  2. Hi Eli, Thanks for taking the time to look into this, I've followed your instructions and I can confirm that I can now access my website over https as well. As for the other site that I had mentioned in the post, it now shows up this message - "This Website Does Not Support a secure HTTPS connection. Please Go Back and try a regular HTTP connection." I guess that you'd have changed the settings, thanks for fixing it for other sites as well.
  3. My site is hosted on VlexoFree, I have a free account. When I access my site over https, it takes me to some other page. I think that this impacts other users also. Another example - http://annihilatethehero.com/ and https://annihilatethehero.com/ Please see this for more details - http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/78726/wordpress-site-redirects-to-different-site-when-using-https-have-i-been-hacked
  4. If you're on a free plan then you need to display the Linkback or the Ad on your website and if like me you use wordpress for your blog then it can be a small hassle to update it every time after upgrading your theme. To avoid having to do this each time around you can use Wordpress's child themes. https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes Here's what my footer.php looks like <?php /** * The template for displaying the footer * * Contains footer content and the closing of the #main and #page div elements. * * @package WordPress * @subpackage Twenty_Fourteen * @since Twenty Fourteen 1.0 */ ?> </div><!-- #main --> <footer id="colophon" class="site-footer" role="contentinfo"> <?php get_sidebar( 'footer' ); ?> <div class="site-info"> <?php do_action( 'twentyfourteen_credits' ); ?> <a href="<?php echo esc_url( __( 'http://wordpress.org/', 'twentyfourteen' ) ); ?>"><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'twentyfourteen' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a> | <!--VlexoFree_LinkBack--> </div><!-- .site-info --> </footer><!-- #colophon --> </div><!-- #page --> <?php wp_footer(); ?> </body> </html> Basically along with the style.css you need to copy the footer.php into the directory of the new theme and make changes there. Hope this helps.
