So excited about the new file management interface!

Now where's the option to turn on https? I've been browsing DW that way for a while, with the bookmark for my reading page pointing to https, but Firefox gives me the lock with the yellow caution sign, saying "parts of this page are not secure (such as images)." Is that a known thing?

Can't answer the second question but the option to turn on https is on the beta page: https://www.dreamwidth.org/beta :)

Ah, the one place I didn't look! Thank you.

Does this work with the add-on of the same name?

Hopefully this is a good question: if I turn on https beta (which I would really like to do), will it conflict with using HTTPS Everywhere? If so, should I disable the add-on on DW? I've never disabled it on a per-site basis before, but can probably look up a how-to on it, if needed.

Thanks for letting me know! Turning on the beta now.

runpunkrun - re the yellow caution sign on firefox. That happens to me on all the pages I have images from photobucket appearing on. That could be a tiny icon, a background image, a mood theme, not just an image I've included in an entry. Basically the Dreamwidth content is all secure but the images I have hosted on photobucket are not (I note photobucket do not use https encryption). If I block images with my ImageBlock extension & refresh the page, the yellow caution sign disappears, which proves the hosted images are the culprit. As for the implications of this, this article may be helpful: https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Protect-your-privacy/Mixed-content-blocking-in-Firefox/ta-p/10990

Yeah, I figured it was something like that. All the site pages are giving me secure green locks; I usually only notice it on my reading page. Thanks for the link!

Hmm, that's weird, since we should be proxying non-SSL images precisely so we don't get the mixed content warning. Lemme look into that a bit more...

Oh... Sorry to have uncovered an issue. :( I actually don't have anything from photobucket on this particular account, but I still get the yellow exclamation mark, which does go when I use an extension to block images. So it mustn't only be photobucket images. (Just to be sure about that I just right-clicked and viewed the "page source" on firefox for my entries page on this journal, and did a "find" search for photobucket, but there was no result).

EDIT - no phobucket but it appears the lock icon for my entries and and the userhead on my custom layout are from imgur - imgur have http:// only links.

Yeah, if you replace the CSS for your custom layout with HTTPS versions of the images, the mixed content warning will go away. (Mood themes, too, if you have a custom one.) I've opened an issue to see if there's any way we can proxy HTTP images in CSS and mood themes, but there might not be; if not, you'll have to find a place on the internet that will host them for you using HTTPS. (Or even put them on DW.)

Transferring all my layout images on my accounts to Dreamwidth is definitely on the to-do list, as Photobucket images can be painfully slow to load at times. I'm not sure I'll bother with the existing images in entries simply because there are so many, but from now I'll probably use Dreamwidth for those too. Is there any plan in future to enable albums in the image hosting area? That would be the icing on the cake. :) (Little steps I realise!! Just putting the thought out there).

Images in entries shouldn't be a problem! They go through the proxy already. :)

Yeah, tagging and albums and all that good organizing stuff are on the list of things to do in the future -- the trick is just figuring out how it should behave.

Oh cool - that's good to know re images in entries. :) I have hundreds of entries with images on my main DW account (recently imported over from LJ). Planning to make that one a premium account.

And awesome re albums etc. I shall watch this space!!
