Scott B. Barnett replied to Juliana Perry's discussion CMS choice and ease of use?
"Excellent analysis.  Contribute is medieval.  Yet any system requires some level of user knowledge and I agree that rather than expanding a pool of editors because a system allows for it, you should be rethinking who really needs to touch…"

"Yep, I got the same messages. Some of our sites use SSL and we've been talking about migrating all the rest our sites for a while now. I suspect we will be doing it rather than just talking about it sooner rather than later now. :\"

Should we migrate to https?

I recently got a notice from Google that in October 2017 Chrome V62 with show the warning "NOT SECURE" on all our web pages we have a input field for search. Since on most of our pages there is nothing that would require secure information I've never felt the need for HTTPS. Our class registration pages are secure but not the general information pages. The warning is going to scare people though. Are others upgrading their websites?See More
