Minor Update on September 5th, 2017

On September 5th, 2017, we will be redirecting all HTTP page requests to HTTPS requests in OpenScholar and making changes to prevent content authors from adding embedded content that points to non-secure sources.

After this change, site owners will not be able to embed content (like images and iframes) that use an insecure HTTP:// URL (you will be presented with an error message). To fix this, often it's as easy as replacing "http://" with "https://" in the URL of whatever you're trying to embed.

Existing content that was previously embedded using HTTP:// on Openscholar sites will be modified to use HTTPS:// instead.

Upcoming updates for the major web browsers, particularly Chrome and Firefox, are leading us toward an internet where HTTPS is a requirement.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at openscholar@princeton.edu.
