XF 1.5 Smilies and changing their path / SSL and mixed content

    I have a strange problem with mixed content after switching to SSL. I saw that all the smilies were served with http. Then I discovered that in the database in xf_smilie the image_url all had a direct link to "http". I think I did this several years ago when I was switching from vbulletin (don't ask me why, I think it was when importing my custom smilies).

    The urls were changed in the database and point to https now. But still the smilies are being served with http.

    I waited 6 hours now, but nothing happened. Is there any caching mechanism, which shows the old smilies?

    Thanks alot :)

    Never change things in the database directly. You should change the smilie URLs in the control panel which will trigger the necessary rebuilds.

    You should be able to edit a smilie to get your changes to be applied. You may need to change a URL and then change it back to what it's supposed to be.

    Thanks, that worked.

    I did that in the db, because it were several hundreds smilies. Thank you for the hint :)
