April Site News
Posted: Admin @ March/31/2017 6:46am
What is SSL and why do we need it?
You may (or may not) have noticed that http://www.rcscalebuilder.com is now https://www.rcscalebuilder.com and the little green lock in the URL bar of your browser. This is because we are running a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) which basically means all data sent between your browser and the site is encrypted making everything much more secure. Why do we need this? The  browser developers and search engine vendors are forcing all site owners to implement this to force higher security on the internet. If we don’t implement SSL you will see a big “UNSECURED” or red padlock in the URL text box at the top of your browser depending on which browser you use and I will get dozens of email asking why the site is insecure. Also, RCSB would drop in the site ranking on Google, Bing, and other search engines if we didn’t move to SSL.

What are the ramifications of this?
So, with SSL being implemented we are going to have to eliminating outside linking of images in posts as of September 1st from external sites like photobucket and unsecured private sites where images are stored as it breaks the SSL certificate and causes the page to be insecure (and pop up annoying warnings) by linking a HTTP url inside a HTTPS page.

Also, after doing some research there are less than 170 threads out of over 11,600 using external image linking and guess what, almost 40% of those have had images missing because the person leaves the site, leaves the hobby and deletes their photobucket account, or deletes the images from their personal site. This is very annoying for someone coming to read about building a specific model only to notice none of the images are there. All current threads will still have the external images linked, but as of September 1st you will no longer be able to link images externally.

So what do I do now if I use photobucket or my personal site in my posts?
Well until September just keep doing what you are doing. Before all this this happens I will be writing more detailed information in the FAQ about how to pre-process your images before they are uploaded making that step as simple as possible on ALL platforms. It is really simple and to many folks try to make it more complex than it needs to be. There are simple tools for every platform (Windows, iOS, and Linux) to batch process images making them web friendly.

I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause any of you, but this is a necessary step we must take to ensure the long term security and integrity of the site.

Until Next Month,
Mike
