ETA, 2-22-17: Aaaand killed, rewrote and re-submitted this request, try next one... bingo. (Actually, I'm surprised "Wow, that's weird!" took a whole week to find me. My luck holds as usual).

ETA, 2-28-17: Not weird, just another issue.


  • Move background images from WP to DW (but keep WP backups and WP style sheet, just in case)
  • This layout looks 7 years old and is actually 7 years old; maybe do something about it - ETA, 2-28-17: maybe not? I actually hate doing new code.

Dreamwidth is running a beta of HTTPS Everywhere. This page turns it on; right now it's the second red button down from the top.

I turned it on tonight (actually, just minutes before opening the editor for this post) and have done exactly zero poking or prodding. Since I'm a frequent finder of Wow, that's weird!, if there's any Wow, that's weird! then hopefully my luck will hold. I like finding bugs, as long as they're not destroying things (though, theoretically, I could like a bug that destroyed some or even all the things, but that's probably a pretty far out edge case involving a fake news website of some sort. Thousands to choose from...).

I asked in a DW comm thread and was told by [staff profile] denise that turning on HTTPS Everywhere, the Dreamwidth Beta, won't conflict with keeping HTTPS Everywhere, the browser add-on, enabled while on Dreamwidth, so apparently you'll be able to keep both running at once.

Being me, I'll try the beta both with and without the add-on (I've been using the add-on for a while and am kind of stuck on it - it's not bad as long as you don't force it to run literally "everywhere", which prevents about half the web from appearing in your browser) so I can see how it all gels.
