    CoffeeSnobs Secure - April 2018

    We moved the site from HTTP to HTTPS last night and it went smooth(ish).

    Spent many hours fixing some bugs and some still remain.

    Mostly, you will see (Secure) in your browser URL bar, sometimes you will see the info saying that some images are not secure. We are fixing those as we find them and hope to have them all squashed in the next day or so.

    The biggest bug at the moment is when posting a new message or replying to one. There is an odd 10-15 second lag and sometimes your browser will give a pop-up asking if you want to leave the site. You can click "leave" and the message will post.

    This is a strange one and I'm not having much joy finding the cause but am still working on it.

    Hopefully everything is back to normal soon

    When I click on 'leave page' it opens an error page re site requirements for a 30 sec interval between posts.
    The post appears in the thread and under the thread banner but not in the thread notifications column on home page right ... at least not yet.....

    Here's an interesting one.

    I receive an Email notifying me of a post to a subscribed thread, click on the link and it takes me straight to the post logged in.

    I open the CS page from a desk top short cut, takes me to the CS home page, however I have to log in every time I visit the site from a short cut.

    Thought it may be a cookies thing, have checked settings, all seems OK.

    No big deal, more nuisance value than anything, any thoughts?

    Yelta, edit your desktop shortcut to:
    https://coffeesnobs.com.au

    ...the "s" might be the difference between the two methods.


    requirements for a 30 sec interval between posts
    hmmm... I didn't get that one but do know the message. Might be a clue, there might some sort of loop before it tries HTTPS.
    I'll keep that in mind. Ta.

    Thanks Andy, that did the trick.

    Sweet Yelta, that was the easiest fix in this unnecessary pseudo security saga.

    I'm on a roll.

    1: I think I've fixed the half secure Browser Bar issue, some site sponsor ads were not secure so internet browsers had a sook. I think I have them all locally now so they shouldn't complain.

    2: I think I also fixed the lag on posting too. The forum was pulling YUI and jQuery information from Google when you hit post, the go out, come back, go out, come back was the lag. Pointed the query local to the server and it now posts faster and without the dopey browser message about leaving the site.

    The post appears in the thread and under the thread banner but not in the thread notifications column on home page right
    I think that's normal. There is some lag in that "Latest Posts" widget, it only updates "every so often" on a cycle. Mostly to stop a flurry of posts causing big server overheads.



    I can't find anything else broken at the moment.
    If anyone finds something post it here or drop me a line via the contact us.

    ...and this post is to see if the lag is back...

    (edit - the lag is gone again. Maybe it really is fixed!)

    Lag test, was quite slow earlier this evening.

    About 6 seconds now, seems fine to me.

    I agree. A handful of seconds is normal, the timeout errors and browser pop-ups we oddly long.

    I think we are good now. (phew)

    Hi Andy,

    Just so you are aware, because of the changes I was required to log back in, and following the Login I got a redirect error. I got around it, but looks like there is still a link without the https://

    And I'm back to "leave page- error page " then having to click on the forum tab to return to the home page......but maybe you're having a tweaking session......

    Funnily enough... not for this post. It went straight up.

    Ta. I don't know where that one is buried but it shouldn't cause grief as the site will redirect HTTP to HTTPS (in theory at least!). I'll have a look tonight to see if I can find where that one came from.

    I had a random slow posting today too... and then the next 5 test ones were fast (near instant).
    Something cached somewhere maybe? I can't replicate it long enough to troubleshoot it.

    I've experienced similar Andy, far from unworkable, just a bit inconsistent.

    PS 13 seconds for this one.
    PPS just made another post, 20 seconds.

    Settings were:
    Require SSL - unchecked
    Accept - Client Certificates

    now

    Settings are:
    Require SSL - unchecked
    Ignore - Client Certificates


    Does that fix yours?
    (Android Chrome on my phone was working fine before and after so I can't test it)

    This is a test for Andy.

    Worked like a charm. No error messages and only took at most a couple of seconds to post.

    Actually, don't think it is your issue Andy, I thinks it's local to me, I was using an old saved URL I had which still had the http:// link.

    Seems to be working fine after fixing
