Miva Merchant 9.07.01 Release Notes


MMTextEditor Changes

  • MMTextEditor settings have been moved from the Settings tab of the Users screen to User Preferences:

    • mmtexteditor.linenumbers replaces the "Line Numbers Visible By Default in Source Mode" option

Miva Blog - How To Convert Your Entire Miva Store to HTTPS
Posted by Wayne Smith on 05 May 2016 10:18 AM

HTTPS has always been a core part of any ecommerce website. If you’re accepting personal information online, including credit cards, you must have an SSL Certificate to encrypt the data. Typically, a website was only served over securely (HTTPS) on Account and Checkout Pages. General shopping and browsing was done over unencrypted HTTP. Over the past couple of years, that is starting to change. Google now prefers the entire site to be served over HTTPS to protect the visitor. They are even giving sites that are all https a small ranking boost. 

While serving every page over HTTPS adds some additional server overhead and can cause the page to load slightly slower, the additional time should be unnoticeable to the visitor.

This tutorial will walk you through step by step how to convert your Miva store to be entirely served over HTTPS. While the actual implementation and changes are relatively simple, making sure everything is done correctly is extremely important. If done improperly there are negative customer experiences which can occur, such as getting insecure warnings on pages and negative SEO consequences which can damage your rankings – both of which you want to avoid.
