To improve the overall security of Spiceworks’ websites, we’re in the process of transitioning to supporting only HTTPS and dropping support for the insecure HTTP protocol. To avoid broken links in your content, please follow the guidelines in this document.
Linking to another community.spiceworks.com page
Whenever you’re linking to a page on community.spiceworks.com from community.spiceworks.com, you don’t need to specify the protocol or the domain in the link. You can simply add a / to the start of the page you want to link to, and the web browser will figure out the rest. For example, you can simply link to:
from anywhere on community.spiceworks.com and the browser will understand it as:
Linking to a different Spiceworks site
When creating a link from one Spiceworks site to another, you need to specify the domain (e.g. community.spiceworks.com), but you don’t need to specify the protocol. You can simply add a // to the start of the page you want to link to. For example, if you want to create a link from community.spiceworks.com to www.spiceworks.com/jobs, you should use:
Linking to a non-Spiceworks site
When linking to non-Spiceworks sites, you should always try to use an HTTPS link, if available; this helps keep our users safe.
https://google.com is much better than
http://google.com. However, not all sites support HTTPS, so please test links before adding them to your content.
