https updating, http not updating (3 posts)

    I have an image scroller plugin that I want to add to one of my pages. It works fine on the https version of the page, but will not show up on the non-https version of the page. I do have a caching plugin, W3 Total Cache, which I cleared and then even deactivated, to no help. Unfortunately, this page is being used to propagate the homepage, and I can't figure out a way to simply call the secure version of the page.

    The bigger problem is, I want both secure and non secure pages to show the same update when I update them in the dashboard. Any suggestions? If it matters, I am using BlueHost with a shared SSL.

    Thank you!

    If I am correct, the free Shared SSL at Bluehost requires you to use this format:
    https://secure.bluehost.com/~username/
    and then would the non-https version just be your own domain name instead then? (http://www.yoursite.com)
    Would the problem come from you trying to access your site from the two different URLs?

    Thanks, BH_WP_Guru... I honestly don't know. BH installed the SSL for me as part of the pro package...

    I have since uninstalled and completely cleared out the W3TC plugin. The problem still remains that the http and https versions of the same page are showing different content... I'm at a loss. Bottom line is, updating pages only seems to update the secure version... at least for this one so far.

    Someone else suggested that BH may have set the SSL up incorrectly... or that it may be a problem with the image scroller plugin I'm trying to use.

    Here are the two different versions of the "same" page so you can look:

    Thank you for your time!!
