      Have you definitely got the correct test URL with https prefix showing in the admincp?
      Also is the SSL certificate wildcarded? Because if it's specific to the live site and you have it on a different URL it will fail.

      Realistically we are going to need a support ticket and access to the test site, since these issues do not occur ordinarily. I've converted numerous vB4 sites, including my own.

      • Definitely got the test domain URL in admiccp with https prefic

        The ssl cert is issued to the test server (used lets encrypt)

        My test server is on a subdomain xxx.yyy.com

        while this might be relevant I am not sure it is the core issue

        The problem seems, to me, to be the URL generated by attachment.php - as I said there are 10 thumbnail images displayed by the widget, all of them, bar the problematic one, have a https prefix.

        I have just also noticed that of these images all those with a https prefix point to the test server, but the problematic one points back to my live server.

        What could cause vbulletin to serve links such as forumname.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=... in different ways

          Shouldn't be anything pointing back to the live server. That is the issue.
          Could be the postparsed table causing it.

          That said it's not going to be an issue on the live site anyhow since they will be pointing to the right place.

            Is this in a post ?

            Perhaps you have just pasted the full link into the post.

            vB4 will not magically change hard coded links in a page.

            • Hi Pau;l

              it is in an article and the picture was uploaded and stored in the DB (not in the file system) by clicking on the image icon in the editor (I never use links to pictures and always upload them from my PC)

                    You are right.!

                    Sometimes uploading images via editor in a post stopped working and had to reload the page to upload an image to the post.

                    I think Paul M can help on this.

                    We can use image upload function like vB 5 for vB 4?

                    or changing the editor to another one?

                  • Updating to HTTPS does not break the editor. I've done numerous sites now and there have been no issues.

                    • I am using vB 4.2.5 RC1 on my website with SSL (Https) and so far there is no any problem, it works as it should be.

                      Comment


                      • OK - so I bit the bullet and went live with 4.2.5 Rc1 and I have the same issue.

                        Attachments I have uploaded (not links) are causing a problem. The following screenshot shows the firefox report - the first two attachments are http, the remainder https

                        otherwise everything seems OK

                        any ideas?

                        • Find the attachment links (in the article) and change them to https.

                            I don't know how I could do that - the attachment does not have a 'link' - the jpg is in the vbulletin database and all I have in the article that references te jpg I have uplaoded with vbulletin is is:

                            Code:
                            [AT TACH=CONFIG]451[/AT TACH]
                            spaces added to make sure it displays
                            there is nothing for me to change to https

                            • I dont really see how thats possible, vB uses the URL defined in settings (which I presume you have set to https).

                              Maybe you have some kind of addon doing this. Impossible to even guess really as we have no access
                              You cannot tell much from screenshots, we dont even know if its a thread, cms article, blog post or what.
