I just realised that https://wordpress.meta.stackexchange.com/ doesn't have a proper SSL certificate set as the site kind of broke when using HTTPS Everywhere. The main site is fine, just the meta site is affected.

The certificate served is only valid for:

*.stackexchange.com, stackexchange.com, meta.stackexchange.com, stackoverflow.com, *.stackoverflow.com, stackauth.com, sstatic.net, *.sstatic.net, serverfault.com, meta.serverfault.com, superuser.com, meta.superuser.com, stackapps.com, openid.stackauth.com, *.meta.stackexchange.com

At the moment, this is by design. We do not yet fully support SSL across the network, and we do not support HTTPS Everywhere.

We intend to support SSL, but that's still a ways out and we don't have an ETA.

    Okay, good to know. But even if it is by design then I think instead of delivering an invalid certificate redirecting to http would be better, wouldn't it?

  • Is there an ETA on this now that Letsencrypt is introducing wildcard subdomains in January?

  • @TomJNowell We don't use LetsEncrypt. :) We've switched to full SSL in Q&A a few months ago. Note that meta sites now live at a different url: *.meta.stackexchange.com because wildcards in the middle of a host address are not allowed in SSL certs.
