Cornell Blogs Go Secure February 15, 2021: Check Resource Links
Related services: Blogs
In the early morning of Monday, February 15, 2021, CIT and CampusPress will convert all websites in the Cornell University Blog Service to secure communication, reflected by the sites' URLs changing from http:// to https://. This change helps secure data transfer, ensure the trustworthiness of websites (a search engine ranking factor), and provide more accurate referral data.
Images that were added using the built-in upload and library tools should already have the proper address. This issue only affects links that were inserted into code manually with http:// included.
CIT recommends that admins of websites that use Cornell Blogs examine their code for links to http:// addresses and update to https://. Any sites that, on February 15, begin triggering browser error messages that content is not secure should also be investigated.
