Subject [jira] [Commented] (ROL-1998) Allow both HTTP and HTTPS by using // instead of schema://
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2014 02:36:15 GMT


Glen Mazza commented on ROL-1998:

Hi Matt, question, in allowing your blog to be served by both http and https, do you know
if that would end up harming your search engine hits & Google Analytics results by dividing
your blog hits into two (or you really don't care)?  I'm not sure if you have 250 hits via
http:// and 250 hits via https:// you might be on the 4th page of Google results instead of
the first (if you had 500 hits using one schema); also, it might (?) be harder to determine
your most popular blog articles via Google Analytics if they're divided between the two schemes.

> 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.
