Mailgun password handling change?


Using Jamroom

I just got the following email from Mailgun.. does this effect our jamroom sites at all?:
===============
"In our continual efforts to uphold the highest security standards possible to protect our customers, starting November 1, 2021, we will no longer return a value for the `smtp_password` parameter in GET /domains and /domains/ API calls.

Why we’re doing this
As a security best practice, we are moving towards hashing SMTP passwords, just as we do with all other passwords on our platform. Due to this new standard, we will be unable to show the passwords in plain text once they are hashed and stored in our secure database.

How this impacts you
After this change, you will no longer be able to view the SMTP password in plain text and must store the password on your end – ideally using a secure password manager. Depending on your configuration, any applications reliant on the `smtp_password` parameter could throw errors.

What you need to do
After securely storing your SMTP password, you will need to update any reliant systems. Applications that are expecting the plain text password in the API response will need to be updated to no longer rely on the password in order to function correctly. We’ve created an FAQ to help you make the change.

Need additional help? Reach out to our support team.
Stay safe,
Chris Farmer
Product Manager"

certificate?/connection not secure...


Using Jamroom

UPDATE: just now heard from this member and she said she downloaded a new certificate to her computer and that solved her problem- she can now freely get to me site with no blocks.
Sorry if I wasted your time on this. ! I sent her your linked article anyway. Marking this solved.

certificate?/connection not secure...


Using Jamroom

This member who's not able now to login due to Chrome preventing her---> she's on an old mac laptop, using chrome and she says she cannot update chrome anymore.
She *is* able to access my site from her phone and a tablet... so I'm thinking it's just due to her using outdated laptop and outdated chrome browser. I experienced her same issue for an hour or so myself, with the 'insecure' block on chrome...but it seemed to quickly update/resolve itself for me. I also updated chrome again.
If that's so then hers is just an isolated case that I cannot really help her with. Do you agree?
I'm going to call this unsolvable for my one member now experiencing it, and I'll send her that link you posted above.
Thank you!

Using Jamroom

Thanks Michael! I'll go remove the Add/+ soundcloud clip button from my members' view now. Good to know it won't delete all my sc videos from my site! :)

Adjusting forum/activity page?


Using Jamroom

Michael, I changed to show the templates in the page's source code.
The code for that page is mighty long so i didn't post it here, but these are the lines that contain .tpl references... can you perhaps suggest which template might be the one to dig into from this? --btw I don't see any tpl references that contain 'action' in them.(I'm pretty sure it would not be the 'footer' tpl...lolol):
line 4:  <!-- BEGIN mdFOTMD_June15_2020/header.tpl -->
line 6:  <!-- BEGIN mdFOTMD_June15_2020/meta.tpl -->
line 38:  <!-- END mdFOTMD_June15_2020/meta.tpl -->
line 51:  <!-- BEGIN mdFOTMD_June15_2020/header_menu_desktop.tpl -->
line 133:  <!-- BEGIN mdFOTMD_June15_2020/menu.tpl -->
line 146:  <!-- END mdFOTMD_June15_2020/menu.tpl -->
line 181:  <!-- END mdFOTMD_June15_2020/header_menu_desktop.tpl -->
line 198:         <!-- end header.tpl -->
line 199:  <!-- END mdFOTMD_June15_2020/header.tpl -->
line 1549:  <!-- BEGIN mdFOTMD_June15_2020/footer.tpl -->
line 1793:  <!-- END mdFOTMD_June15_2020/footer.tpl -->

Badges?


Using Jamroom

Isleander, I got that older module working from "Developer Networks" years ago. It still works on my site, but two things about it:
1) I had to make my own images for the badges- really they are simply little 'labels' that appear under a member's name ONLY on their profile page. Thus, they wouldn't show up anyway in the member page you screenshot.
2) it was a big pain in the butt to get it working in my skin. If i had to do it again I would not... too much trouble!
I imagine that you, like me, were hoping for a little badge that would show in the corner of a member's avatar, wherever they appear on the site. That's what Ning used to have and I think you came over from ning as well, right?
I have not looked into the ultrajam module, since i did get the older module to work well enough to just leave it in place.

(Michael, that jr 'openbadges' link is not working.)

email from Soundcloud... anything to worry about?


Using Jamroom

i need to remove my members' ability to see the SC option when adding an audio file. BUT!- i need to keep the currently existing SC clips up and running on my site.
I can go to my soundcloud module and go to quota config and then uncheck the "allowed on profile" box, ...BUT!- I don't want to accidentally remove all those members' already uploaded and functioning SC clips. If i uncheck that box and 'save'- will it simply remove member's ability to see a SC option when adding an audio clip?
I don't want to delete or remove all the existing SC clips from my site!- I just want to stop members from trying (and failing) to upload new SC clips.
Is that little checkbox the way to do this correctly?

certificate?/connection not secure...


Using Jamroom

Hi, a member forwarded this screenshot to me today when trying to get to my site of fotmd.com (see screenshot)
I wouldn't think too much of it except that yesterday I got the same google chrome message myself when trying to get to my own site. Since then I have not had a problem, and it's working fine now again, for me anyway.
Looks like in the screenshot says something about CERT_DATE_INVALID.... is my site certificate ok or do I need something updated? Thanks-
