Support » Plugin: Simple Lightbox » Lightbox not working for galleries with medias in HTTPS

  • Resolved smirn0ff


    I tried to put my blog totally in HTTPS.
    I noticed that the plugin is not working when medias path has HTTPS, it works still fine with HTTP. I thought at the first place that it was my gallery plugin but it behaves the same with default galleries, it opens image page instead of lightbox.
    Can you have a look ?
    Thank you in advance.

  • Same here. I just made the last update of SL, I believe it stopped working on HTTPS then. Before the update, it was working just fine for me. Hope this helps.

    @smirn0ff: Sure, I’d be glad to take a look. Please provide a link to a page that exhibits the issue you are experiencing and I will take a look.

    @micha: As per the forum’s guidelines, please create a separate post so that your issue can be attended to specifically.

    Thank you for your answer.
    Unfortunately my blog is totally private so i cannot share any URL.

    Sorry, I will make a new thread.

    @smirn0ff: Unfortunately, without a link, there’s not much I can do to diagnose the issue you’re experiencing.

    SLB fully supports SSL, but there may be some other configuration steps that need to be taken on your server when switching over. For example, you may need to check with your hosting provider to ensure that cURL is properly configured to access local files over SSL.

    Let me know if you have any other questions, and if you have a link to share in the future, I would be glad to reopen this ticket and take a closer look into your issue.

    I think it is ok since HTTPS si working for the rest of the files. (PHP, css, js..)

    Curl is OK from my point of view :

    Hi, I can understand how it may seem similar, but cURL is a completely separate piece of software from PHP, with its own configuration and settings. Also, the information provided by phpinfo() only shows the options PHP uses to interact with cURL, not cURL’s own settings and policies.

    As previously noted, contacting your web hosting provider to check on the settings in my previously response is recommended to resolve your issue.

    OK thanks !
    But can you give me more details on the specific things i have to check with them ?

    Hi, the details on what to ask your hosting provider are noted in my 2nd reply in this thread. You can also ask them to check any error logs that may indicate whether certain files are not being loaded. Unfortunately, without a link to see what may be happening in your specific case, there’s only so much I can suggest.
