Good Morning/Night/Afternoon All,
To begin, I am comfortable with WordPress, HTML, PHP, and all that good stuff… However, I have had little experience dealing with server/ssl configuration (specifically taking an http site to https). I've been through the tutorial, FAQ, and reading numerous other forums (HOURS :)...) So here I am.... at the mercy of the great support forum :)
In short, I am using a fresh WooCommerce (Theme is a WooTheme: Mystile), W3 Total Cache (which I have completely disabled until I get this SSL issue figured out), and of course the WordPress HTTPS plugin.
It seems to me that the majority of unsecure elements are in fact enqeued, in which case I believe this plugin should have set those to HTTPS .... unless I am missing a major piece of the puzzle here.
The console is showing me that the GREAT majority of my insecure elements are being loaded via http://mydomain.com/wp-content (also, wp-includes and my uploads folder).
I've tried changing the site and home url (this didn't seem to fix url issue(s) at all. Tried the WooCommerce "Force SSL Checkout"... that hasn't worked. This all in addition to playing with the HTTPS plugin for ....I'll just stick with "some time now" :)
Now, I may be crazy, but it seems that the HTTPS plugin may not be working properly. While it will redirect the http to the https, I'm not convinced that the "Domain Mapping" or the "Remove Unsecure Elements" are working. (I say this because I have a console full of unsecure elements as well as some http requests from gravitar.com (which is mapped to secure.gravitar) ). Any reason/cause known for this?
** Also, one recent claim on this forum regarding Network Solution's SSL and WooCommerce not playing nice.... not sure what to make of that yet http://wordpress.org/support/topic/woocommerce-plugin-1?replies=3
Some of the "Solutions" and "FAQ" pages I've been referring to:
WooCommerce's SSL Page
Yoast SSL Setup
And of course the HTTPS plugin forums/faqs
While originally I was planning on only securing the checkout page, after much research I would just as soon secure the entire website (it is an e-commerce website after all).
My apologies for the rambling. Any advice, tips, or words of wisdom will be MUCH appreciated. Thank you in advance.
