XF 1.4 SSL on xenforo


I've been working on implementing SSL for some time now, and it's all going fine. There's one issue I haven't been able to work around, and it's users embedding images/attachments. Is it possible to force all links to https? How does this forum solve this issue? Even this might be an issue as not all websites have a SSL certificate installed. The forum has lots of attachments, images and embeds, mostly from imgur. I do realize that even if some resources aren't encrypted, the other ones are and as long as it's not sensitive information it's OK.

Enable the image proxy feature in the ACP.

Forcing links to https wouldn't work if the URLs are only available at http.
