Websites upgraded+secured; help wanted

Post by robn » Wed Feb 15, 2017 1:10 am

You may have heard rumours that the wiki was hacked. Turns out it was true (I even got in trouble with the datacenter operators).

So, I've upgraded to the latest forum and wiki software (PHPBB and MediaWiki). For good measure, I've forced HTTPS for everything (existing links should redirect and continue to work).

There's a bunch of stuff that I know is now broken or at least a little off:
  • Homepage slideshow styling (probably a failing CSP rule on an embedded script)
  • Wiki mixed-content warnings (MediaWiki footer, probably some non-https images in pages too)
  • Wiki editor seems to be broken
  • http links need changing to https
  • Forum has lost its logo
As you see, I have very little time to maintaining Pioneer infrastructure these days. I would welcome help with fixing the above and, longer term, assistance running the web servers and build infrastructure (with a view to handing it off entirely to someone who wants it). There's no hurry from me; I'm happy to keep putting in my hour of Pioneer work each month, and will still respond when prodded. And I'll will get to all these things eventually!

Thank you very much!

I'm afraid I can't offer much help regarding web maintenance, my knlowledge is quite limited in that field.

I've been meaning to reply but haven't known what to say!

Erm, thanks robn! :)

We'll have to get sorted with taking some of the shit off your hands somehow.
