Docs site now HTTPS

I’ve moved the Textpattern Documentation website from HTTP to HTTPS now, all previous links should be redirected without problem.

I need to move the Textpattern.com domain to HTTPS in due course too in order to fit in with my plans for the new site and keeping maintenance low (docs and .com are meant to share the same CSS/JS but I can’t do that right now because of mixed content restrictions). Not sure how easy that’ll be since WE STILL DON’T OWN OUR OWN DOMAIN NAME (which is fucking ridiculous).

Brilliant work on docs Phil. And it feels just fine on that .io domain.

I know the dot com site is the historical site, but i think the domain never belong the community.
The .io domain is now a more sexy name. Why not decide to use this io domain as main domain, and do a good redirect from .com to .io. Imagine the death (or not so bad problem !) of the .com owner :-(( …

Me too. All the little graphical touches and icons make it feel right. The image on the 404 page made me laugh, never spotted that before.

I’ll try and do some more doc tidying too at some point. Still got FAQs to go through and move and I’m only partway through fixing the core callback docs.

Re: Docs site now HTTPS

Thanks everyone. The .io domain usage is a conversarion we, as devs, need to have at some point soon. It would certainly make ongoing site work easier across the official sites – not having control of the DNS is a major setback for me.

If we are to do it, it needs to be during the time when the textpattern.com domain is still viable so we can 301 redirect and not lose inbound link juice. It would make sense to coincide that at the same time as the new site launch (there are some pages of the old site that are redundant so they can either wither away or redirect to more appropriate pages).
