A week from now, we'll be updating MetaFilter to always serve https pages instead of http! You most likely don't need to care at all that this is happening, but I'll explain what it means below. Come on in! [more inside]
Can metafilter force https? It looks like this as discussed a few times, the last being was just over a year ago. A couple specific things I find troubling:
- When I navigate to https://ask.metafilter.com, or any other metafilter site, it removes the https and takes me back to http
- Forms (except for login) seem to be submitted via http POST (even anonymous asks)
It's opt-in for members, but why not use it by default for everyone?
Feature request: enable https for everything on mefi, including posting.
