I can’t find this issue in the forum and I’m hoping I’m not the only one and someone can help.
This page is showing an SSL error on the images in the Notes sections because HTTP is being used in the path. The main images look to be using HTTPS.
I cannot figure out why. The site is on WP-Engine and we are not using any force SSL plugins. The general settings are set to use https.
I’m using shortcodes to display these sections throughout the site and they all show the same issue. Using the cMap template.
Has anyone else had this issue? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!04/19/2016 at 9:03 am #373332
This is not a bug with Connections…
When you inserted the image in the notes field you did it setting the URL to start with
http. It should be
https. Notice the trailing
s. Edit the entries which you inserted an image and correct the URL and the mixed content errors will go away.
Hope that helps!04/19/2016 at 8:57 pm #373377
Thanks for your quick response. However, the Connections interface does not allow for a choice of http or https. In fact, it doesn’t allow choosing an image from the Media Library. It only allows an upload from your computer. I tested this yesterday by adding a new image with the same results.
What table are the image paths stored? I can’t find it in any of the tables that begin with “wp_connections”.

This is absolutely correct for only the logo and image upload fields. There is no need for you as the user to choose
https, Connections will take care of that for you when displaying those two images. You can verify this. All the logos are infact being served using
The issue… the images in the notes fields that are giving you the mixed content warnings, those were manually entered into the text area of the notes field by either copy pasting the URL of the image or using the Add Media button and inserting the image from the Media Library. In either case, my previous reply is still the solution. You need to edit the URL of the image in the notes field to be

You’re right, I do see the manual entries for these images.
What table are the image paths stored? I can’t find it in any of the tables that begin with “wp_connections”. I’d like to run a search and replace rather than manually go thru each one.

Never mind, I found the info in the connections table in the notes field. I think I’m good to go now.
