Going from https to http is not working properly

I have an issue when a customer is one the cart or checkout page and the URL is https. If they chose to continue shopping by selecting a category, rather than going to the chosen category CS Cart takes them back to the home page and the unsecured http URL. This only happens with the category links. The About and links to other pages are working properly.



I don't see anything in my htaccess that would redirect https to anything. The category list is just a block, dropdown horizontal. The content settings is Full Tree and Root Level so I don't actually specify the URLs for categories, CS Cart manages that.



Can someone suggest what else I should be looking for?

Not sure what you mean by this, do you mean by clicking the “Continue Shopping” button, everything is OK, but if they click a Category link in your menu, then you have the problem?



Can you post the URL of the problematic site?

Thanks for responding so quickly. I am not referring to the Continue Shopping button but the category list. Here's the site. www.omnivos.com Just add something to the cart, view the cart then select any category from the category list towards the top of the page.

If you mean the White Papers drop-down, the links are correct as they are using the relative path (/page-name.html instead of http:/www…com/page-name.html).



There is nothing I can see on those pages which would cause the SSL to fail, nor are there any warnings.



I cannot view any of the pages using https either, which suggests you only have (in Settings>General) “Enable secure connection for authentication, profile and orders pages (SSL certificate is required to be installed on your server)” checked and not “Keep HTTPS connection once a secure page is visited” which would provide the effects you are describing.



PS. I found the Currency link a little difficult to see. I would advise changing the CSS class “.select-link span” in styles.css to “color: #333333” to match the rest of your site and make it a little easier on the eye.

That was it StellarBytes. Not sure why having one checked but not the other would cause a problem but I am glad it is resolved. Thanks for pointing that out.

No probs.



“authentication, profile and orders pages” < auth.X, register.X and orders.X dispatches only.
