HTTPS being rolled out on all our sites

We are in the process of rolling out the use of SSL for all our customers.

 

This means that your website visitors and also the search engines will consider your website more secure to visit.

 

When this is rolled out, you will notice that the url have changed from http:// to https:// before your domain name. You will also notice the "green padlock" indication the same (see below picture)

 

gaatec ssl url

 

websites that don't use SSL are normaly indicated with a exclamation mark ( ! ) as can be seen on the below image.

 

gaatec nonssl url

If you click on that exclamation mark you will get up a popup indication that the "connection is not secure"

 

 

The security aspect is one thing, but Google will also show preference to sites with SSL going forward.

Joomla 3.5.0 and 3.5.1 Released

gaatec-joomla-upgradedJoomla released the new major version 3.5.0 of their awardwinning platform on the 21. March 2016. A couple of weeks thereafter on the 5. April Joomla released the first bugfix for Joomla 3.5 which they named Joomla 3.5.1.

 

All such major releases (3.5) introduces a few new features, and is a normal part of the evolution of Joomla. Major releases is therefore often followed shortly thereafter by a bugfix release, and we therefore decided to wait until the first bugfix release before we upgraded our portals.

 

We do have a number of customer sites on Joomla 3.x, and we have over the last couple of days upgraded all affected portals accordingly.
