XF 1.3 SSL Encryption Glitch/Jumping

    Just a few minutes ago, I've added the code into the .htaaccess file regarding SSL. For some reason, I'm seeing the HTTPS Lock for maybe a split second, but then it just disappears. When I'm in the admin panel, the HTTPS sign/lock seems to stay there permanently without a problem, but the site itself seems to be not accepting that for some reason.

    I've changed the Board URL and Home URL etc.

    Thank You.

    What is the URL?

    Maybe not all of the content on the page is secure?

    Yep, there is non-SSL content in the page. In particular, there are several tinypic.com images being served with http (not https).

    Oh, I see. Is there a way that i can add those images in, in like a (sprite sheet) kind of fashion? Will that work?

    You have some http images that are throwing up a mixed content warning - blocking stuff in some browsers. Might be in your notices, not sure.
    From your page source:
    Code:
        <LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://oi58.tinypic.com/205v5tx.jpg">
    
    
    Code:
    <p><center><img src="http://oi58.tinypic.com/10rjms0.jpg"><b>The Crew @ Pirates Online Rewritten</b></center></p></div>

    Move the images to your server and then call them from https

    I see that as well. For the titles, is there another way to maybe upload them? Is there a way I could trace a path from my desktop for those images?

    Okay I see. Do I just create a new folder within the database, and move all the images there and trace the path afterwards? Also, Do user profile pictures or any kind of signatures etc need to be removed as well?

    I upload extra images to either my root or my /images/ directory and then call the image from
    Code:
    https.www.MYDOMAIN.com/images/IMAGE.PNG

    Will this path also work? (/data/images/IMAGE.PNG)?

    I've changed it to those paths and for some reason, that doesn't seem to work.

    There will be one URL that corresponds to a file. It is relative to your web root directory on the server. A file in the web root has the URL, http://www.yoursite.com/file . A file in a subdirectory of the web root called /images will have the URL, http://www.yoursite.com/images/file .

    Okay, I'll change it and see how that works out.

    Unfortunately, doing that including the site URL doesn't fit in the user groups custom CSS slot. Its well over 100 characters.

    Also, I've put in a background that was pathed from the database in both the styling options and those two didn't work either.
