Approved links on ROBLOX website only use http, despite having https in link

  • Describe the bug. Describe what is happening when the bug occurs. Describe what you would normally expect to occur.

When clicking on a link on the ROBLOX website which leads to another portion of the ROBLOX website, even if the link contains https, it will take you to the non-encrypted version instead.

  • How often does the bug happen (Everytime/sometimes/rarely)? What are the steps that reproduce the bug? Please list them in very high detail. Provide simple example places that exhibit the bug and provide description of what you believe should be the behavior.


Read the description. Read the link to their devforum bulletin post. Clicking the link should take the client to the displayed link

Expected Behavior:
The link should take you as displayed

Actual Behavior:
Regardless of having https at the beginning, the parser will always place http instead, thus putting people at potential risk of spoofing/other security risks.

  • Would a screenshot or video help describe it to someone? If so, post one.

  • When did the bug start happening? If we can tie it to a specific release that helps us figure out what we broke.

Just noticed it today. Can’t tell when it would have started initially tho.

  • Anything else that you would want to know about the bug if it were your job to find and fix it.

Uuuh … spaghetti? Other than that, should be a 10 second fix.

I still have DevForum saved on my Boomarks as just devforum.roblox.com not https://devforum.roblox.com so when I click that I have to log back in every time, seems like https redirection is not setup on this Discourse Install.

On top of that, I’m thinking this is more of a parser issue as the link clearly has https:// declared in it, yet I’m taken to the http version of the website. When clicking on an linked https vs directly visiting the site through my address bar, I notice a small but noticeable delay which makes me believe the parser issue.
