the hacker known as 4chan

Some one set up LetsEncrypt SSL. We installed the server into LynxChan and Nginx (though only nginx was required). We figured good to just have it ready on LynxChan just in case.
And since we have a similar situation to 8chan, where the owner doesn't own the domain. We decided to get a 2nd domain as a back up. Infinow was purchased and set up on CloudFlare.
Then we set out to make the templates SSL friendly. A lot of the URLs were absolute URLs referencing images as http. This will break under SSL, so we had to make the template URL relative.
People really like the 8chan feel, a lot of compliments for the styled front-end. Minor tweaks were made to various UI elements including message box, navigation items, and several to home page.
