Clean Blog: Please move includes to https

Post by Lux » Fri Apr 08, 2016 4:53 pm

Hi Don,

I like your theme very much.

Since I migrate all blogs to use https, I like you to migrate the "includes" to https as well:

Code: Select all

<link href="http://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.5.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:300,600,800|Lora:400,400italic' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
Would it be possible to do so?

Cheers

Dirk

P.S.: This applies to any other template as well.

Thanks Dirk. I am pleased you like the theme. I have a handful of minor changes I need to make to Clean Blog anyway, so I could consider your suggestion as well.

May I ask why you prefer https for bootstrap and google fonts?

Yes sure.

Webbrowsers give a warning message that some parts of the website are not encrypted.

What if there were no http nor https? I see the bootstrap css does not use either. Would that help?

Also, isn't this something you could do via htaccess?

If the Bootstrap CDN ships the files via https (they do), you should reference them via https. There really is no reason not to. Also, there is no reason to use the “protocol-relative URL” (just “//”) any longer, if I understand Paul Irish correctly (see “Update”).

Sounds good to me too. I will make the change when I change a few other minor things.

Hi Don, glad to hear, that you plan some changes :)

Do you think, you could throw an eye on this, before finishing the changes: http://board.s9y.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=20338&start=31 ? :-) Maybe one of the things find a way into the next version.

Also i love your Top Navigation in Kinetic, with the Sub-Navigations. Maybe it is also possible to add this on Clean-Blog. For me this is the best theme currently for a kind of diary blog.

Best regards, Harald

Hi Harald. I will review the other forum posts. However, changes easily accomplished by a user with minimal css or tpl modifications are not necessarily going to find their way into a theme's options.

I do not anticipate adding sub-navigation to Clean Blog because I do not think it works well with that theme's concept of simplicity.

I do, however, think sub-navigation would be nice to have in future themes and/or the core. It is really easy to add to any theme - the code could be copied directly from Kinetic.

Any news on this?
