Given recent developments on the web and the fact that the HTTPS protocol hasn’t been rolled out as quickly as some (such as Google) would have liked – because the transition to full HTTPS can be long, complex and costly, particular for small sites – we have decided not to make HTTPS obligatory on Hypotheses for the time being.
At present an obligatory shift to HTTPS would cause various technical problems for blogs using content hosted on sites that do not use the HTTPS protocol.
However, it is possible that in the medium term the HTTPS protocol will become the only protocol in use on the web. We are not ruling out this option, and the advantage is that we now have the technical tools needed to shift Hypotheses to HTTPS when that becomes necessary. This is an ideal situation both for the time being and for the future, guaranteeing a user-friendly experience for our users as well as the security and stability of the platform. It should also be noted that the HTTP and HTTPS protocols currently coexist on Hypotheses. If you have a user account on one or several of the platform’s blogs, you are automatically browsing the platform using the HTTPS protocol, regardless of which Hypotheses blog you are on.

Please note that a new version of Hueman is now installed on Hypotheses, meaning that much of the information contained in this post has changed: all the configuration options for this theme can now be found in the “Appearance > Customize” menu on your dashboard. The tutorial shown below is therefore out of date. However, it may still be useful to help you understand Hueman’s different configuration options, which are still available and outlined below.
For full and up-to-date details on Hueman, please visit the official website created by the theme’s developers. However, please note that we have chosen not to include some of the configuration options mentioned on the official site on Hypotheses itself. These options will therefore not be available on your blog.
