SSL upsets Base 3 (& other?) template rendering

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hi all,
I finally got around to organising SSL for a site. But as soon as I turn it on in Joomla, the Zentools modules disappear (e.g. slideshow) and the menus don't work properly (no dropdowns).
(I assume it's because things are not pointing correctly to CSS files etc.)
Any fix for this?
As soon as I sought it out for this site, I can implement it on my other sites.
Thanks in advance for any hints.

Nick

I've made changes to the config file and to htaccess - as recommended at Joomlart:
www.joomlart.com/tutorials/joomla-tutorials/how-to-use-ssl-in-a-joomla-site
But results are exactly the same as just turning it on in Joomla.

Here is a solution from a couple of years ago (from a K2 blog. I use K2 on this site):

"It sounds like your error has nothing to do with K2, instead it is caused by the way your template is requesting the jQuery.

In short, your site is secure, but the template is calling jQuery and possibly other scripts from a non-secure source.

The solution is to remove the "http" from the any file request (href="//code.jquery.com...)

If your not advanced enough to modify your template files, you can simply use the NoNumber ReReplacer extension to perform a find & replace for each non-secure script. extensions.joomla.org/extension/rereplacer"

Is that a solution for the Base 3 template?

Thanks, Nick

Hi Nick,

I know from my cost this week that not all hosts work the same - been battling 123reg (a nodaddy company) in my country to install an SSL certificiate

Ultimately their legacy system on older host account doesn't work with ssl

What does the browser console say regarding jQuery?

Paul,
In the Chrome developer I get this:

Mixed Content: The page at 'www.treefruit.com.au/' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure script 'ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.3/jquery.js'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

www.treefruit.com.au/:1 Mixed Content: The page at 'www.treefruit.com.au/' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure script 'code.jquery.com/jquery-migrate-1.2.1.js'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

As soon as I allow these insecure scripts to load, all works well.
Any idea how to change these links to reference the https?

Any help, greatly appreciated.

SOLVED:
I use JQuery Easy on this site. There is an option to load libraries as https. I simply ticked that box.
Done.

This may help others who use JQuery Easy.
