kentico image not being served over HTTPS

Toorna Salmon asked on November 21, 2016 19:24

Hi there

My website was set up in 2008 with the free version of Kentico 3.1a and our web designer has since disappeared. As we are on the free version, we are obliged to link to the kentico site with a logo on the footer of each page, so presumably a piece of code has been added to a footer template.

I have just recently updated the website to https and we are now getting an error which says - the page has requested an insecure image 'http://www.kentico.com/outside/logos/powered_by_button_100x38.gif'. This content should also be served over HTTPS.

I'm not a web designer and so I can't find where the code is to edit it. I've looked in the database but as there are hundreds of tables. I don't know where to look.

We are going to upgrade, but in the interim, would anyone be able to tell me where this code might be, or any other options to change this.

Thanks in advance

I'd start by looking in the user interface under the master page and look in the layout of that master page. If the site isn't using a portal page master template, then look in a directory in the file system called CMSTemplates and look for your master page within there. Most likely the code you need to modify is in one of those 2 places.

If you follow Brenden's advice and find where the image is, you can update it to not use the image I believe. According to kentico you only need to have the text with a link to Kentico. (even though that page is kind of weird and won't let me copy the text in the text area).

Thanks so much for your replies. I've found the CMSTemplate folder and there are 6 aspx files in there. For each one, I get the message - This is a marker file generated by the precompilation tool, and should not be deleted! There is nothing else in there.

The only other place that there are master templates are within page templates and in the layout of each, it says - The VirtualPathProvider is not running, you cannot edit the page template layout. The system is using the physical layout files from folder ~/CMSTemplateLayouts.

I don't know where else to look!

Thanks in advance
