XF 1.1 XenForo SSL Support (Not working?)

    I bought an SSL certificate and installed it on my server correctly. As I've done this with another domain not using XenForo and it worked fine.
    But now, using XenForo, it seems like SSL isn't working at all.

    First off, using FireFox it reverts back to http:// even though https is set in the config.
    Second, Google Chrome says it's not encrypted, BUT it says it is verified by Comodo.

    NameCheap support, and my VPS hosting providers support said it is caused by the script and that I could contact the developers.

    So, my question is --

    1.) Did I waste my money on an SSL certificate when a big forum doesn't comply with it?
    2.) Well, obviously, how do I fix it?


    Thanks....

    My site is 100% behind EV SSL (wordpress and XF).
    A lot of people XF forum working as well. Just make sure you do a search for SSL, HTTPS here and there will come up with some threads discussing how to set it up.
    From your pictures it looks like you are serving images from http, not https. You need to enable SSL from the server level.

    Use http://www.whynopadlock.com/ to see which sources are over HTTP

    I checked it and I was using a PHP script to redirect users to /community/, but still. When it goes to that page it shows the blue bar for like half a second then it disappears? Why would it show up then disappear?

    Also I host another site on the same server using SSL and it works fully.

    My guess is your PHP is not set up properly with XF. Hard to tell with little info and no link to the site.
    You can always open a support ticket and let them look into it.

    Have you tried changing the script and redirecting to the full "https" URL?

    What do you mean "changing the script" doesn't explain very much :p

    Also while using the http://www.whynopadlock.com site -- it shows errors for things like ImagShack.us images that are embeded, etc. Would having embeded imageshack images mess with it? lol..

    of course. if you have images that are from other sites that serve regular http, it will break the padlock.

    Alright. I never knew that, so thanks. It works fine now, I'll just have to contact one of the sites I use to link a single image, as it's a status banner for our game server.

    Your post implied a relative redirect "/community/" - on the off-chance that your server was not forwarding http to https I was suggesting you try a complete URL, i.e.; "https:// www.yoursite.com/community/" - but you seem to have found the source of the problem now. (y)
