Re: Converting to https://

There's a sticky thread here that should be of help: http://community.theturninggate.net/vie … hp?id=7876

(it's right at the top of the Backlight Support forum if you need it again)

Re: Converting to https://

Thanks, Rod, that link really helped.

I just added the required text in the .htaccess file then changed the URL in the Backlight/settings and voilà!

Pierre, just check that you don't have a link somewhere on your pages that points to http://somewhere.on-your.site. I had a few... and just found another one yesterday that I missed.

Re: Converting to https://

I found that I had to also change the link in PUBLISHER but up to now haven't found any other link that needed to be updated to https.
