ALERT: Expired SSL Certificate Issue
One of the core WordPress 5.8.1 files has SSL certificate code in it that is tied to the LetsEncrypt service. However, LetsEncrypt retired that specific code on 30/09/2021. So this is now causing widespread issues.
If your server/domain uses the LetsEncrypt service for your asset sites, you shouldn’t have any issues with your front-end content. However, this issue will cause the following on the back-end:
- Prevent you from installing the SplashMaker+ themes (and related plugins).
- Prevent the HubSpot SmartToken service from running (meaning no connection to HubSpot).
This is not something we at Splashmetrics can fix right now as the problem resides in the WordPress core code. As you’ll see in the link above, it has been reported that this issue will be resolved with the release of WordPress 5.8.2.
