If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Hi, I was wondering if anyone succesfully implemented installing ssl cerificate with shoutbox theme and the WordPress HTTPs plugin. As soon as I activate a ssl on a particular page my css on the site gets broken and it doesn’t display properly. I only want to activate it on one page.
Please provide us a link to the actual page where you force the SSL. Where are you hosting the website?
Hi I think the issue is caused by the cloudproxy, because I am behind a proxy server. My host pointed this out to me. So I will contact them first.
Please do so and let us know so we can mark the thread as resolved or assist you further
Yes, you can’t simply change the protocol. If you want to change the url from http://www.middleeasterngeographic.com/ to https://www.middleeasterngeographic.com/ you must also load all resources (images, scripts, etc.) from https://. However it requires that all url paths in the database also point to the https:// url. I recommend to use WP MigrateDB or WP MigrateDB PRO to export the database. Use the “domain replacement” feature to replace all occurrences of http://www.middleeasterngeographic.com with https://www.middleeasterngeographic.com in your database and export the database. Then make a backup of your old database, delete the database data/tables and import the database file you exported with the migrate plugin.
