HEADS UP: Configuration of https
« on: June 11, 2020, 02:24:20 pm »
I'm working on configuring https for TM's web server.  This will include some brief downtime for server restarts, but it could be more significant if I break anything.  I'm starting the process with some of the other sites on the same server, so hopefully by the time I get to travelmapping.net and forum.travelmapping.net, things will go smoothly.

The forum and main site should now be running on https://.  Old URLs with http:// hard-coded should be redirected but that might not be perfect.  I've fixed a few items that caused trouble as I've been switching things over, but please let me know if you see problems.  The problems I've encountered so far involve trying to load scripts or stylesheets over http from an https page, which is disallowed by modern browsers.  I few instances may have snuck in, and one (https://github.com/TravelMapping/Web/issues/481) seems to need a bit more investigation but only affects a couple of our map tile options.

Shield fonts are not rendering correctly in the HB.

Looking good in a few checks on my end.  For which ones are you seeing problems?

Looking good now. I'm not sure that I've closed & reopened my browser since then, but maybe it took time for some cached items to catch up.

I experience strange behavior on the forum today. Many Posts I read are still marked as NEW on the board page after I've read them. Even my own posts are indicated being NEW. I need to open the thread minimum twice again (3 times in total) so that the NEW flag disappears. I've restarted the browser and even the PC but still the same. It was fine yesterday, but the latest change was the https thing.....

Does anyone else have this issue?

edit: It worked fine with this post though.
edit2: Then I've edited the post and I have the issue now. I leave the thread by clicking on the "navigation line" to go to board level - this link: https://forum.travelmapping.net/index.php?board=9

I've seen similar behavior but have not attempted to investigate.

Maybe somewhere there's an http:// item trying to get imported/run?  That's all I can think of as a possibility, but I'm no expert on the specifies of SMF.  The AARoads Forum runs over https so maybe @rickmastfan67 has some insight on whether they're encountered behavior like this on their https server?

It's really annoying today. I have to open the thread 3 or 4 times till it's finally marked read. Or is it a timing problem? The mark read button does also not help.

edit: It always happens when I edit a post. My post is marked "NEW".

You might just have to get used to it.  Marking a topic as unread if the last post gets edited has been how things work over at AARoads since forever, to the point I'm actually surprised it didn't work that way here.  It might just be the intended behavior of the forum software, although why it changed at the same time as https was implemented is a mystery.

But why do I need to open the thread multiple times to get rid off the NEW icon? Even pressing "Mark read" does not help....
And why does it not always happen?

well, if I'm the only one with this problem, maybe there is any other reason......

And it's not limited to edited posts. I had to open the thread of my latest post 10 times to get rid off the NEW indication....

I didn't have the issue with the previous post but where back to the url=https://forum.travelmapping.net/index.php. Opened this board again, back to index, back to board 9, back to index and this board (Welcome & Notices) and the "General Web Design Discussion" have the icon for unread posts now.....

I am not sure what to make of it, as I have never seen that problem in either this forum or on AARoads.  I would suggest we wait until this weekend's planned update of the SMF software on this forum to see if anything changes.
