  • SSL Caused icons and some overlay text problems

    My host added the SSL certificate to my site, but as you can see there are some problems, pictures not showing and text overlaying.

    How do I fix this?

    There is more to it than simply adding a certificate.

    Please ensure ALL steps in this guide have been followed:

      All is done except this...I should contact the host to redirect???....

      All my title pages in threads say DEFAULT ????

      ANYTHING ELSE?
      Your site should now load and run normally when using https in the URL. However, you now need to redirect any http traffic to https, so that everyone using your site uses the secure connection.
      Again, in most cases, the simplest way to arrange this is to ask your host to configure it for you. They shouldn't charge for doing this, and it won't take them very long.
      If you'd rather do it yourself, it involves playing about with special files used by different types of server software - For instance, a server running 'Apache' will use an '.htaccess' file, whereas a server running IIS will use a 'web.config' file. If you don't know which server software your server is running, speak to your host. GoDaddy have a useful guide to making these changes HERE. However, these files can be quite tricky to work with, and an incorrect entry will break your site. It's much simpler to get your host to do it!

        I talked to my host and they say https is working and being redirected. Yet I have the same problem.

          I did this. I put it in the head_include and I still get icons not showing, text overlapping text and title pages in threads saying DEFAULT for each one

            OMG you are not going to believe this. In Forum URL all I did was add the www and now the sitepics work. Why should that be?

              There is still one problem. The icons in my vBulletin control panel are broken.

                The icons in the control panel work now that I cleared by browser cache. But there is still one problem. My banner doesn't work.

                  Man I am solving one problem after another. I went to "title image" under Style Manager and added an s to http, now my banner works.

                    In stylevars you should be using relative path, not full path

                    So images/icon.png rather than domain.com/forum/images/icon.png
