Today we have a rather big update from the backend to announce, as Shivtr has moved entirely to https and now uses SSL throughout our service =)
SSL For Shivtr Subdomains
If you use an official Shivtr subdomain for your site, such as *.shivtr.com or *.wowhordes.com, your site is now served over https by default, and will show the green secure lock in browsers =)
SSL For Custom Domains
If you use your own custom domain name for your site and are on the Epic or higher plan, you can now request an SSL cert for your domain name, and we can apply it for you. A note that you can do this has been added in our features page.
SSL Lock has a warning?
Though your site now should show the green lock, you may encounter an issue where the lock is grey or has a warning with it, saying not all content is served over https.
If you run into this, it is likely due to you including images on your site that are not served over https (for example by linking to an external image in a forum post or news entry). Updating these paths to be served over https will resolve this.
The easiest way to fix this is to use Google Chrome and right click on your page and go to Inspect, then go to the Security tab, you should see it mention Mixed Content. Then reload the page with this open, and it will show you the exact images you need to update.
Domain Names may no longer have "." in them
To support https with our subdomains, you may no longer use a "." in your domain name. The reason for this is because our SSL certs are for *.domain.com, such as *.shivtr.red or *.tyriaguilds.com. If your guild domain was "my.epic.guild.shivtr.com", this would not match the certificate and throw an invalid certificate error in the browser. An easy fix would be to update this example to my-epic-guild.shivtr.com
- Bank members who are inactive/deleted will no longer show in the Members tab of the Bank.
- WoW Profiles have been fixed to work with updated stats
- Several CSS fixes have been made to the Glare/Scrime themes.
- The image gallery got a fix to its storage calculations to ensure they are correct
That's all for this update. Happy Gaming =)
