I have just installed a Lets Encrypt cerificate through my host to enable https:// on my Joomla website.

There is no issue with the backend using https:// on a standard Joomla template.

On the front end I use the Helion Shape5 template and https:// has caused the menu and the page layout to display completely wrongly.

The site is mintogolf.co.uk. Prefixing the url with http:// [correct display] and again with https:// [corrupt display] shows the problem clearly.

On the Joomla forum I'm told the problem is due to the page code having a lot of http:// links rather than https:// when loading stylesheets and some javascript.  I'm told if the site is brought up with https:// then the browsers will block http:// links.

The suggestion there is the issue relates to the template and I should adopt a newer template.

There has never been a problem with http://

I know Helion dates back to 2014.  If the problem is template related will updating the template to one of the 2017 Shape5 templates solve the problem?

Hello,

Make sure you have configured your site's configuration.php file so that the live site url also includes https:// from the setting in that file. That is what is used across a Joomla site to determine the url of css and js files.

And how do you do that? I'm having the same issue .

I put this in for live site in my configuration.php and it's still blocking content from the template.

public $live_site = 'https://';

Hello,

This:

public $live_site = 'https://';

Needs to be your entire site url, you are missing www.yoursite.com after the forward slashes.
