    Default Ultimate Fade-in slideshow Stops Working After Transition to SSL

    1) Script Title: Ultimate Fade-in slideshow

    2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...nslideshow.htm

    3) Describe problem: This morning, a telephone technician at my web hosting service made an unauthorized change, switching my site from http:// to https:// (This was in response to a problem I was having submitting a page to Google.) I have just discovered that none of my 26 slide shows work. Here is an example: https://wildadirondacks.org/bloomingdale-bog-trail.html

    Thinking I could solve the problem quickly, I tried an experiment on another slide show page. I went into the source code and changed all the http:// to https:// . That did not work. Here is the URL for that page: https://wildadirondacks.org/boreal-l...ive-trail.html

    Here is the source code for the slide show on the Boreal Life Trail page:

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript" src="fadeslideshow.js">
    
    //***********************************************

    The problem clearly has to do with the unauthorized change that the technician made on the server, from http:// to https:// The script for the Ultimate Fade-in Slide show is no longer working. Also, another script I use has also stopped working. I tried redefining the script source to https://, but that did not work either.

    Please help!

    Default Possible Solution

    I think I might have figured out how to fix this. I prowled the web and discovered that Chrome gets very upset if it encounters mixed content,meaning that there are subresources on a page that load insecurely over http://. Once the FatCow technician changed my site to https://, none of the scripts worked because they were on an http:// server. All I had to do was add an "s" to the source for the scripts, and the slide shows started working again. I have just modified the 26 pages with slide shows. Now I have to modify the fifty or so other pages that use the Scroll to Top script (which also stopped working after they transitioned me to https://). The page where I found the answer is here: https://blog.chromium.org/2019/10/no...out-https.html

    I hope this really is the answer. If there is something else I should do, please advise.

    The absolute links on a 'https-site' must be 'https-links'. The relative links work alright in all cases. So in your case, you could replace
    Code:
    ["https://www.wildadirondacks.org/images/Boreal-Life-Trail-1.jpg", "", "", "Mushrooms of the Adirondacks: Hemlock Varnish Shelf (29 June 2013)"],
    for instance, with
    Code:
    ["images/Boreal-Life-Trail-1.jpg", "", "", "Mushrooms of the Adirondacks: Hemlock Varnish Shelf (29 June 2013)"],"],
