    HTTPS and Canonicals


    Hi all,

    I have just installed an SSL certificate on my Opencart website. I have 301'd the whole site so all HTTP pages now redirect to their HTTPS counterpart.

    However; the dynamically created canonicals for the product and category pages still point to the HTTP version. Is this standard or do I have to find a way to make them point to the HTTPS pages?

    Thanks in advance

    I recommend making them HTTPS as well. If I'm not mistaking, I think it requires different server configuration, some additional code lines in .htaccess. You could try talking to your hosting company's support, maybe they could fix it up for you.

    YAY I found the answer after a little more digging. Just had to tweak one word in the system/library/url.php file:

    From: $url = $this->url;
    To: $url = $this->ssl;

    Simples ;)
