𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗣𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝟰.𝟴 𝗩𝗶𝘀𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝗘𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗼𝗿 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗧𝗲𝘅𝘁 𝗪𝗶𝗱𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗮 𝘀𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗼𝘂𝘀 𝗯𝘂𝗴 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝘅𝘁 𝘄𝗶𝗱𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝘂𝘀𝗲𝗿𝘀.

Many people do coding within text widgets. The auto-on visual editor destroys attempts at making changes to existing text widgets with pre-existing javascript and coding. Deja vu to some years back, before they added in the "Disable the visual editor when writing" User option...

I had hoped that disabling the visual editor in the user profile would have disabled this new text widget rich edit feature by default.

But it appears the WordPress developers did not implement this standardization into version 4.8.
- A bug report was submitted on this, https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/40960

I can't even imagine what might happen if after updating to 4.8 some innocent tiptoes over to the Widget area and tries to edit a coded text widget setup by their long gone web designer years before - without a backup in place... pretty much an end game situation for that unlucky person.

Word to the wise here. If you have anything other than text within your text widgets you may wish to hold off on upgrading to WordPress 4.8, at least until the next release.

Lesson learned the hard way–as much my failure as any, in that I failed to run the beta and point this out to the core WordPress folks before the release.

"My client is frustrated that I have to wait for SSL to work after I move their website to your service.

This means that my client's site might be down for a couple of hours after I update name services to your servers.
That's not cool!
How do we fix this???"

𝗥𝗲𝗽𝗹𝘆 𝘁𝗼 𝗔𝘂𝘁𝗼𝗦𝗦𝗟 𝗾𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗧𝗩𝗖𝗡𝗲𝘁:

Thank you for asking. I'll try my best to explain why below.

Comodo (SSL) must be able to reach the domain.com/filename.txt across the internet and verify that this file exists when the AutoSSL script runs. If it cannot find the file, it will not issue the certificate. We simply have no other way around that. It's the only way to get "Free SSL".

Here's the gist:
SSL is used to encrypt the connection between browser and web server. The problem is, that way back it was also decided that it should be used to verify the identity of the server you are communicating with. That is what started the whole industry, and why it has historically cost so much for an SSL certificate. It's considered proof of identity, and they charge money to prove that.

About two years ago, LetsEncrypt came along and offered free SSL certificates. All you have to do is run their program every 3 months, and as long as they can connect to your server at the domain you're trying to get an SSL certificate for, all is well. Now about 8-10 months ago, cPanel added what they call AutoSSL, which is their suite of functionality to handle issuing SSL certificates and properly installing them on the system. There are some other functions we could discuss, but the main one you and I care about is where it hands you a "free SSL certificate".

Now, coming back to my initial point about identity verification, the one way companies like LetsEncrypt were able to get past this whole expensive entrenched industry, is that they had to figure out a way to prove that you owned the domain that you are requesting a certificate for. One way of doing that is to automatically place a file on the website's public_html (or equivalent on other servers) and have a remote server access domain.com/filename.txt -- In order for this to work, the DNS has to be pointed at the server when it is making the request. If it's not, you're denied. Simple as that. That functionality is there to protect everyone, and it's a pain. But, you certainly wouldn't expect to set up a google.com or chase.com site on your server and have it give you a valid trusted SSL certificate, right? This has become the industry standard and cPanel's solution that they've come to use with Comodo.

This is where we have this chicken and egg issue, where we cannot actually issue an SSL certificate for a domain unless it is already on our servers.

𝘗𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦 𝘯𝘰𝘵𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘰𝘯𝘭𝘺 𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘳𝘦𝘦 𝘤𝘦𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘧𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘦, 𝘢𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘯𝘰 𝘢𝘭𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘯𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘮𝘦𝘢𝘯𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘧𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯.

𝗦𝗼, 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘀𝗮𝗶𝗱, 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗯𝗮𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝟯 𝗼𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗺𝗼𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱:

1. Purchase an SSL certificate from us, and we can go through the normal standard pay-channels to acquire one from Comodo, giving us the ability to do email verification or DNS record verification. -- We can set these up at any time, even before the site is pointed to our servers. Our cheapest certificates are $38 for 2 years. These may be the best option for customers that really care about how secure their site appears anyway. And when it expires, they can simply choose to switch to AutoSSL free certificates at that time, and there will be no interruption.

2. If the client has an existing SSL certificate at their old host, we can attempt to import it on our server, so it is set up before they point DNS. The fee for this is $30. -- They could also then choose to use AutoSSL when that certificate expires.

3. We can continue with the current method of moving over the domain and then getting the SSL issued within about an hour. Generally speaking, it takes 5-10 minutes on average, and though I've seen it take up to 12 hours, that's usually because something is broken in the site configuration, which we can more readily check for now. Overall it does work, and it works well.

Please let me know how you would like to proceed, and if you have any other questions, or would like me to clarify further.

Wordfence scans and LiteSpeed issues?

If your website with TVCNet is running LiteSpeed and Wordfence scans do not complete, this link describes the subject in more detail,
https://docs.wordfence.com/en/LiteSpeed_aborts_Wordfence_scans_and_updates._How_do_I_prevent_that%3F

The solution in most cases is to add this text to the top of your .haccess file
(located within your public_html directory):

# BEGIN litespeed noabort
<IfModule rewrite_module>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule .* - [E=noabort:1]
</IfModule>
# END litespeed noabort

Another wonderful service review, this time from our friend John Anastasio (a customer of ours since 2008, yes, over 8 years :)

"Jim Walker and crew have handled multiple websites, email servers and domains for us for many years with the utmost professionalism and technical knowledge. From simple domain setups, PCI, and complex email configurations, TVCNet is our go to "web department". In this day and age, it is nice to still have personalized domestic tech support and service that is a cut above the rest."

{This is what we live for here at TVCNet}
