SSL Errors and WordPress custom domains

I’ve recently been informed that since I’m using a custom domain that some browsers are giving an SSL warning when trying to visit my blog. I’m not 100% sure if WordPress has it in their ability to fix this because this would imply they would start allowing private key changes for each hosted site. Most likely they do not support this.

In the meantime I’m NOT going to be updating my links to point to the HTTP URL. If you’ve got a browser giving warnings to the site I recommend you try without the HTTPS.

I will look more into this issue and if necessary I’ll drop the custom domain and head back to a wordpress named blog to eliminate domain validation SSL errors. SSL is more important than the name associated with the site.

Thanks! (I’m still recovering from Cisco Live so there hasn’t been a wrap-up post. I’ve also been very busy at work.)
