Support » Plugin: Adaptive Images for WordPress » Broken when switched site to HTTPS

  • Does this plugin work with HTTPS at all? I had to deactivate this plugin to get my images to show on the site, and anytime I try to re-enable it, it breaks again. Is there a step I’m missing, or are the two not compatible?

    Hello, there,

    Well, actually the plugin itself is agnostic of whether your website is using HTTPS or not! However, it might get confused when using both HTTP and HTTPS or when you are in the middle of a transition from HTTP to HTTPS, or vice versa.

    Could you please check the “WordPress Address (URL)” and the “Site Address (URL)” in your WordPress “General settings” page? Do they contain “http” or “https”? It is very probable that they still mention “http”. If that is indeed the case, then you should make sure that you change this -and all of your websites urls along with it- to “https”, so that the transition to HTTPS is complete and that no code within your website will be confused by such a setting.

    (You might need to save your Adaptive Images settings anew after this, too!)

    Let me know if this worked for you and if there is anything else I can do!

    It’s not my first HTTPS rodeo, those settings are the first thing I change. I also use velvet update URL to update all the image URLs to reflect the HTTPS as well.

    I was also not sure why this plugin would be affected by HTTPS, all I know is now when I activate it, my slider disappears, gallery images won’t load, and a bunch of funky stuff happens on the page. I just tried again today after it being HTTPS over the long weekend, and it does the same thing.

    Hello, again,

    As I said before, the plugin does not care whether you use HTTP or HTTPS, but it does get affected when a transition from HTTP to HTTPS happens. The reason is that the plugin must translate images from urls to local path. And, of course, the image urls are affected by HTTP/HTTPS.

    Now if the plugin was working OK so far then what you need to do is a) make sure your have HTTPS set in your website urls, in your WordPress “General settings”, like this and b) save the Adaptive Images settings anew, so that the plugin settings are aware of the website urls change.

    Are you certain that you have followed these two steps? All our tests, for all different setups, have shown that this should work, but I would really like to find out whether there is some other case which we have not predicted yet.

    Also, if it is not too much trouble, could you please momentarily activate the plugin and send me the results of the “Print debug” and “Print diagnostics” buttons in the plugin settings page?

    Doing A & B mentioned above didn’t do anything, however I found clearing the image cache sorted out the issues I was having. If you still need it I’ll paste the debug info here (but I’ll be changing the URL of the site)


    Debug info

    ✔ PHP GD library is installed.

    ✔ Image cache directory has been created.

    /home/example/public_html/wp-content/cache/adaptive-images => drwxr-xr-x

    ✔ Installation .htaccess file is setup OK.

    /home/example/public_html/.htaccess => -rw-r–r–

    ❖ Adaptive images settings dump:

    array(14) {
    array(3) {
    string(21) “cache/adaptive-images”
    array(2) {
    string(18) “wp-content/uploads”
    string(24) “wp-content/themes/images”
    string(6) “0.6.62”
    string(47) “/home/example/public_html/wp-content”
    string(44) “”

    Hello, again,

    Thanks for the debug info. It all seems as expected, I cannot see out of the ordinary there.

    I am glad that clearing the image cache worked for you, although I cannot connect it to the initial problem. I will keep a note of it for other users in the future.

    Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.
