BlenderNation is switching to SSL


I have just enabled SSL on BlenderNation (all pages are now encrypted when they're sent to you), which will give you better privacy when surfing BlenderNation or when logging in to leave comments or to post new articles. As far as I can tell things have continued to work correctly but if I broke something, let me know :)

About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Of all the websites I visit, this is probably the least "questionable" one, but thanks for keeping our security in mind. Many of us are too stupid to have separate passwords for all our logons.

    A secure Merry Christmas to you!

  2. I'm not very concerned about my security on this page. I only wish the "Remember me" button on the login page would have any function ;) Almost every day I come here I have to log in manually again...

    • Hmm weird, it's the standard WordPress login and it has always worked fine for me. Perhaps a cookie has gone bad - could you try deleting all your cookies and log in again? Another thought: do you use a password manager that autofills the form? If so, check it to be sure it didn't save the 'remember me' field as unchecked - that happened to me a few times too.
