Hi all,

Just updated the forum to version 7.6.1.1 and it has all gone great and has a few good features in it and I will be posting latter regarding some options that I would like if possible in the next version update.

I have now an issue (not related to the update done) and hoping that you might be able to help with so I can correct it, so I can get the green padlock back. I just downloaded a programe to check for errors and it has come back with the following (which seems to right through the forum):

Insecure Image: <img src="http://www.outdoorking.com/forum/uploads/usergals/2013/01/full-4181-9587-utekeep.jpg" alt="[Linked Image]" class="post-image" style="height:auto!important;max-width:100%!important;"/>

nsecure Image: <img src="http://www.outdoorking.com/forum/images/members/5772.png" alt="" class="alvt" style="max-height:100%;max-width:100%;object-fit:contain;">

It all seems to be images that have http and not https I think and was hoping that their might be an easy fix to the problem rather that go through every image as I have thousands of them on the forum.

Any assistance with this issue would be appreciated.


Regards,

Bruce

The answer you're looking for is in the "Docs" section of the top menu.

Update your database to your website's new URLs.

After you update, your "secure test tool" should not present any more flags regarding your site. Though your tool may flag inlined images linked from third-party sites, or if you allow your users to use avatars linked from other websites.

There really is no other way around it, other than choosing one of the three following options.

Thes apply to linked images for Avatars, Signatures, Posts, Private Messages... and probably Profile Comments, if you have them enabled:
1) Remove all the linked images and disable their ability to use images other than what you've provided or what they've uploaded to you.
2) Disable the ability to hotlink images, and purely rely on user uploaded image attachments. This would mean that you'd be hosting their images.
3a) Just accept it.
3b) Just accept that everything before a certain date (today?) is the way it is, and make the changes so that everything going forward is 100% secure.

If you disable hotlinked images, IIRC, the forum will just display a link to that image, instead of trying to display it. This will pass your tool's test.
