That's a rather &mdashing move!

(Serious version: your html entities got munged.)

>2 brightcopy: Yeah, sorry about that. All fixed now.

This is good news.

My session was mungled however: I was being sent in 301/302 redirect circles from the HTTP to HTTPS URLs until I cleared all LT cookies and logged in again. All working now.

I like it. It's in between munged and bungled.

Hehe, it's a slightly mungled word I think... :)

I'm afraid I'm not able to reproduce the looping I was getting before, Tim.

I suspect it was just a cached 301 for https://www.librarything.com/home and so was going to http://www.librarything.com/home, which then promptly 302'd it back to where it came from. Clearing FF's cache fixed it.

I'd thought it was something to do with the Firefox plugin HTTPS Everywhere that I had installed, but removing it didn't help. (On which topic, here's the ruleset that that add-on uses to redirect people: https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/atlas/domains/librarything.com.html )

I was going to leave a note in their bug tracker, but I don't have a clue where to start trying to use that thing.

I raised a related bug this morning: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/10892

I think the looping might be because of HTTPS Everywhere + previous LT Cookie/cache. I was getting the same thing on Firefox, but disabling the rule for LibraryThing, and clearing LT's cookie + FF Cache, fixed the issue.

Oddity - I'm not sure it's related to this, but it might be. On the ReadaThing wiki page, most of the profile entries in the timeline are http; a couple are https. The posters _might_ have done it intentionally - it's two members, and their entries are https every time they show up. Don't know, it's just weird.

Better late than never. I hope it won't take much to have the whole site on https.

I am trying to get SSL enabled for search widgets (/ltsw/) My secure page which is hosting the widget displays the search box but the results of a query appear unsecure. See an example here: https://ciel.viu.ca/teaching-learning-pedagogy/new-or-fairly-new-teaching/centre...
