Fun with Chrome Certificate Transparency errors

If you’re renewing an SSL certificate and there’s a checkbox to use certificate transparency, CHECK THAT BOX! Otherwise, the certificate will be fine in all browsers, but Chrome will give a panicking error about “this site being unsafe.” The issue is that there was no entry in the internet-wide certificate transparency logs and Chrome doesn’t trust it. You’ll have to reissue the certificate with that box checked.
