Use relative links (or, do not create unsecure links for users on secure server)
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

After I searched for "piano" on
https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/wiki/Sequence:Test2
the Sequencer displayed the following message:


Proxy is not configured [x]

The request failed. Are you logged in on commons.wikimedia.org ? Please [log in] and try again
General security reminder: Only login to web sites when your address bar displays that site's address.

[cancel] [Retry API request]

and [log in] was linked to
http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php/Special:UserLogin
although I was on secure server.

Could you change the code which creates that link so that it points to the secure server when the user is on that server?

Yes .. sequencer could use improvement in protocol relative urls in a few places.

Will have to be deferred until the whole application can be revisited.

Which tools are no longer in use? Why?

Sequence Editor is no longer in use and does not see active development.
