Cannot Edit Posts after moving to HTTPS
« on: April 14, 2018, 02:54:50 PM »
Greetings,

A few weeks back I converted my forum to use all https with proper certificates and all that jazz.
Everything has been working so far, with the exception of editing posts. This happens on the default theme in addition to my own theme, so it's not theme related from what I can tell.

Here's the steps I take to reproduce the issue:
  • Find a post to edit
  • Click the modify button
  • The edit page loads properly in HTTPS, with the content of the post to edit
  • On the "edit" page, make edits (or not)
  • -ISSUE- When clicking save or preview, the browser will warn about submitting content over an insecure connection.
  • When the page reloads, (after clicking save or preview) it takes users back to the "edit post" page with the contents entirely missing.

I'm trying to understand the difference between making a post (which works fine) and the edit a post processes, and I'm not familiar enough. Any suggestions on where to look or start?

Thank you for the help!

I understand that is an option; but a time consuming one. Are themes from 1.x compatible with 2.0.15?   Honestly asking, because I suspect the answer is no but that's my main hold back. :( All the modifications I've made over time also make moving quite an investment of time to get it back to the state it is now (minus editing posts).

SMF 2.1 sounds more like what I want if I'm going to spend the time upgrading... but looks like it's not ready for prime time yet?

A handful of different ones from many years of operation. TinyPortal and Aeva media are the two largest two mods. I can provide a full list easily, but will that help?

When you say "run repair settings" is that in mysql or in SMF?

Thank you!

No.

But, most 2.0.x themes are compatible with 2.0.15 (you may have to edit some thing manually).

Yep, it's still in beta.

You upload repair_settings.php in your forum's webspace and run repair_settings.php from the browser. You can upload it via FTP or your hosts file manager, your choice ;).
