Since this is affecting albums, have you tried updating the album .htaccess? (Backlight Advanced Settings)

Yes I have set just the same code in Backlight Advanced Settings.

Same effect. You can try it on my site.

Re: https

after changing the album .htaccess did you also update the album files by clicking the Update Album Files link on the Publisher admin page?

Re: https

No, but now I did it. There is no redirection from http://www.rainer-goergen.de/backlight/search/ to https.

And the result site of a search stays to http. By clicking onto a single image of the result site, also http.

By clicking onto the albums which are found, they are all with https.

If I click on the menubar from a https site, the search site is also https.

Re: https

For clarity, and those using Bluehost.com...

To enable https for your site you’ll also need to edit the htacces file as described in post #3 (http://community.theturninggate.net/vie … 289#p47289)

The code goes here as shown in the red box....

htacces%20code.JPG

After saving the file, then go to your backlight admin panel and navigate to Backlight > Settings. Scroll to the bottom and click on Show Advanced Settings.

Click Edit Settings and change both the Company and Site URL’s to "https" (no quotes).

Scroll down and if you see an htacces file, edit it as you did the first file.  If you do NOT see an htacces file, it may have already been edited. Regardless, once done, click Save settings. Lastly, clear template cache. That’s it, all should be good, and you should now be using https.
 
Note that editing the htacces file and changing the backlight settings to https must to be done for https support.

For Bluehost.com, the support the code is:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://example.com/$1 [R=301,L]  (substitute example.com for your website)

Hope this clarifies; though I'm sure the software authors probably has an easier more efficient way.

Peace:)

Re: https

Thanks Andrew! This seems to pull several threads together and I'm sure will be very helpful to others (I know it is to me).

Re: https

Thanks Rod. Had to figure things out myself today since Bluehost was no help. This thread actually helped me put it all together.

BTW will new versions of Backlight (Backlight 2) or whatever the new name moving forward use https by default?

Thanks.

I don't know. Perhaps one of the developers, Matt or Ben, will chime in.

Re: https

Applications don't use HTTP or HTTPS by default. Whether you're using HTTP or HTTPS is entirely up to what your hosting is configured for.

Re: https

OK, so I thought I had this fixed but just discovered my Search page is coming "Not secure"  - https://exposedvisions.com/backlight/search/

What am I missing cause I can't seem to find the settings to fix it?

Thanks.

Re: https

Read post #31 and see if it works for you.

Anyway all the pages on my site is secure except for search page. Don't know what's going on there and I can't seem to find a setting to fix that one page.

Re: https

I suspect that the warning on exposedvisions.com is due to this warning in the console:

The page at 'https://exposedvisions.com/backlight/search/' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image 'http://www.exposedvisions.com/backlight/designer/?c=page&a=image&p1=5'. This content should also be served over HTTPS.

Can you try temporarily assigning a template that does not use a banner image, to see whether the 'unsecure' warning goes away?

Re: https

Not sure what you mean?

Anyway that's the same banner (nameplate) used throughout the site, yet only the search page comes (came) up unsecure. Oddly enough now the site appears to be working (secured) after going to backlight admin and clearing the template cache (again). And this SSL test site also confirms all it good (now) - www.whynopadlock.com (suggested by bluehost's tech support).

Earlier it flagged the page bad with basically the same error message you posted.....

A file with an insecure url of "http://www.exposedvisions.com/backlight/designer/?c=page&a=image&p1=5" was loaded on line: 68 of https://www.exposedvisions.com/backlight/search/.

This URL will need to be updated to use a secure URL for your padlock to return.

Now I get a "Pass" checkmark with "You have no mixed content." after I cleared the template cache (again).

Will keep an eye on this and let you know if any more weirdness pops up.

Thanks.

Re: https

Strangely, I'm still getting the insecure message on your search page at https://exposedvisions.com/backlight/search/
The identity plate is also still coming in over http, not https.  Looking at the code, the base URL is taken from the Site URL value in Backlight's settings.  If that setting does include https, then clearing the cache should remedy the problem.  Based on your above comment and the fact I'm still seeing it come over http and the warning, for some reason that doesn't seem to be the case.

Looking at your home page, the identity plate is coming over https.

Re: https

There seems to be a consistency issue going because I'm also getting the unsecure notice. However I've notice that if I log into backlight admin and clear template cache (again), the issue clears for a couple of hours than returns.

Any ideas???
