To secure my website I had to switch from HTTP to HTTPS. But since my site is on https connections tile-plus doesn’t show the pictures in my business directory. It is although impossible to edit or create an entry. An error message comes up
FEHLER: Die $img_path Variable wurde nicht gesetzt.
This message is shown for all the 112 entries. I am on PHP 7.x using cloudflare for my HTTPS services. If you need more information or please feel free to ask.

This error is fairly rare and usually only ever happens when any of these constant are defined incorrectly in the wp-config file; WP_SITEURL, WP_HOME, WP_CONTENT_DIR or WP_CONTENT_URL. Do you have any of these manually defined in the wp-config file? If you do, can you remove them and let WordPress setup them up to see if that fixes the issue?10/09/2018 at 2:22 am #474370
Thank you for your replay but I am sorry to inform you that I haven’t changed the wp-config file. If I download the whole content to my local web server that is running on a MAC in a MAMP environment everything is fine and the logo’s pictures are shown. If you want need FTP and or ADMIN access to my website please let me know and I will provide you with the necessary information.

RE: I am sorry to inform you that I haven’t changed the wp-config file.
Ok, what method did you use to convert the site from http to https? The method being employed is likely the cause.

Ok, I tracked this down to WP Easy SSL and its Cloudflare mode. This was actually quite difficult to track down because the way it alters content to make URL/s secure was also altering my debugging code I was outputting on the screen… I’m not saying that’s bad it was not showing me on screen what was actually happening in the code :/
I am not going to delve too deep in the technical details but here is what is happening.
With Cloudflare mode active a core WP function
falsewhen it should be returning
true. This is known issue in WP that core WP does not want to fix and that the fix should be up to plugins such as WP Easy SSL which implement feature like Cloudflare support.
is_ssl()is a core WP function many, many, plugins rely on it being truthful including Connections.
To fix this issue I installed the CloudFlare Flexible SSL plugin. It is a no frills single purpose plugin that does only one thing. It sets the global server variable for SSL to on based on Cloudflare headers so
is_ssl()will return the correct result.
The better fix… if you can report this issue to the WP Easy SSL support team, they could integrate the few lines of code CloudFlare Flexible SSL into their plugin so
is_ssl()will be truthful when their Cloudflare mode option is enabled.
Hope this helps!10/12/2018 at 1:47 pm #474837
