SSL and phpBB3

Post by Sir Glen » Fri Mar 05, 2010 4:30 pm

I've changed my forums over to SSL. I have the certificate installed, set the forums to work on https and port 443. All is well. However, any time you view ANY page you get a popup that says, "Do you want to display only the content that was delivered securely?" No matter which option you click when you view a different page (or refresh the same page) it pops up again. Any ideas how to fix this? I'm especially concerned about offsite images in people's signatures or avatars. Is it going to pop up like that for any image that is linked to from photobucket for instance? How can I fix this?

Make sure you set your cookie to Secure on the Cookie Settings page.

Any images from offsite are insecure, of course. There is nothing you can do about that.

So any page with offsite images is going to trigger the popup? There's no way to even on an individual level disable the popup in IE?

No. By definition, linking offsite is not linking to your site, and its certificate.
About all you could do is host those images yourself, and change the links.

NM, this post should be deleted. The script I was referencing does not do what I want it to. :-/ How about this, does anybody know of a secure offsite photo server? Like photobucket but on the https protocol for sites like mine?
