Missing pictures with SSL

WP Intense Q & ACategory: External ImagesMissing pictures with SSL
Ronni asked 4 years ago


Im about to switch my site sportsprodukt.dk to an https connection. But i get a lot of missing pictures :-(

Maybe because i use the external images plugin and it would try to get pictures from a not https server - right?

Is there any way to solved this - i would like to keep using the plugin so all pictures are away from my database. But unfortunally some of the shops arent with ssl :-(

Whar can i do with theese shops? Anything to do?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Ronni,

There is no solution to showing remote insecure images over a secure connection.

We do plan, in a future upgrade to have the plugin identify these and get a proxy replacement.

Sorry there is no short term fix in this instance.
