website suggestion

Post by abda53 » Tue Jul 28, 2020 1:42 pm

http://www.envision.box5software.com/
should have a redirect to http://www.envision.box5software.com/forum/

http://box5software.com/
should have a redirect to https://box5software.com/

www.box5sofware.com
should redirect to non-www (or redirect everything to www) - right now you technically have 4 versions of your site, http, http www, https, https www.. https www SSL is broken, so I recommend just https. Search engines may see that as duplicate content which would hurt your SEO rankings

Thank you for the very helpful information abda53. I went and implemented all of your suggestions tonight. I am a lot more familiar with .htaccess files now.

Please let me know if I overlooked something.

Awesome! Main site looks good. here is what I see now for the forum

https://www.envision.box5software.com/forum/ SSL cert error (redirect www to non-www)
and then
https://envision.box5software.com/forum/ - broken ssl (at least one image/script is being called through http and not https)

Thanks abda53,

Looks like the favicon was the issue with the broken ssl so I think that is resolved now. For the www to non-www redirect maybe you just need to clear your cache because that seems to be working correctly for me now. There were a couple weird instances while I was making the updates so it might just not have propagated properly. On the other hand, if you have steps to reproduce then I would love to see them.

Thank you again!
