#2466 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

WordCamp images stored with http URL

When uploading images to the 2017 WordCamp London site via the normal Media page, the images are being saved with a http URL. This means that:

  • images inserted into content has the http URL.
  • images used for the sponsors shortcode output use http URL.

The wp-admin and the front-end, are both trying to display as https (good), but the images are creating mixed-content warnings.

We can workaround the first issue by adjusting the post content markup, but other instances such as sponsors shortcode markup (which, for us, appear in a widget on every single page) can not be worked around. This means that potential attendees are being asked to enter their ticket details on a page that isn't marked as secure.

Possibly related to #2348. The 2017 WordCamp London site was created in late 2016.

This is happening on the 2017 WordCamp London site because the site URL (in the database) is non-https. This should not be the case for any current sites, so closing this issue.
