Subject [jira] [Closed] (ROL-1998) Allow both HTTP and HTTPS by using // instead of schema://
Date Mon, 26 May 2014 17:42:01 GMT


Glen Mazza closed ROL-1998.

    Resolution: Not a Problem

Closing, Matt, as I put in my last comment I think our present options are good enough and
the use case for this does not appear strong enough to absorb the potential for lost security
and perception of Roller being less secure as a result.

>                 Key: ROL-1998
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Roller
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: User Interface - General
>    Affects Versions: 5.0.3
>            Reporter: Matt Raible
>            Assignee: Roller Unassigned
> On, I'd love to be able to serve up my site with both HTTP and
HTTPS. I've found that the easiest way to do this (in a web browser) is to use schema-less
URLs (// instead of http://). However, many of the Roller macros use the Absolute URL's value
to construct their URL. 
> I tried using "//" as an absolute URL, but this didn't work. You can
see the issues I encountered on the Roller mailing list:
> As a workaround for many URLs, I was able to append ".replace('https://', '')" in my
theme. However, there were a number of them I was unable to change b/c they're embedded in
> Atom/RSS Feeds
> OpenSearch
> Category Links (#showWeblogCategoryLinksList)
> Page Links (#showPageMenu)
> Recent Entries (#showWeblogEntryLinksList)
> Read More
> RDF Comment
> $url.home
> $url.feed.entries.atom
> $url.tag
> For Atom/RSS feeds, I can see why the Absolute URL is important. However, for the HTML-rendered
version, it'd be great if the schema from the browser's address bar could be used.
