Finally moving to https!

I haven’t been using my blog lately because I’ve been trying to find a reasonably-priced service that offers encrypted web connections, i.e. A few weeks ago my current hosting provider, Pair, started offering that as a free service. Woot! I’ve now got that set up, including a permanent redirect from http->https. I found redirect-checker to be pretty helpful in validating my redirect rules.

I’ve spent some time upgrading my site, which unfortunately broke some of my plugins. I switched to a new recipe plugin, WP Recipe Maker. But I haven’t found a way to use the free version of this tool to import my old recipes automatically. I’ll probably just go through my recipes and reformat them manually. Sounds tedious, but it’ll be a good opportunity to look through them all again.

Another plugin that broke was my markdown formatter. This has left a bunch of raw markdown in some of my posts, but that’s pretty easy to fix. one. post. at. a. time. le sigh

About Jim Vanderveen

I'm a bit of a Renaissance man, with far too many hobbies for my free time! But more important than any hobby is my family. My proudest accomplishment has been raising some great kids! And somehow convincing my wife to put up with me since 1988. ;)
