    Default Changing href links to https

    With recent changes requiring to show a secure site with https in the URL bar (so certain browsers don't show the site as not safe), my site became pretty non-functional. I had a family member fix this on the home page by editing the html code, so it is (partly) functioning right now, but other pages and links are not. And when I need to update the home page and other pages, NOF would simple replace the edited code with its own code. Basically, the hosting site wants all links to point to https, but NOF 15 does not do this, at least not at this time (e.g., in my menu and in file links). Is there a way to re-work all html links and file links to point to a secure location without having to re-edit every single one of them?
    My site is solutionresources.net. You will find the home page links working now, but links on other pages are not functioning correctly. And the main article on the home page is not displaying (which is why I have to re-upload the page)

    Make all of your links external links in link properties and choose for them to be preceded by https:// using the dropdown menu.

    Thanks. I see how that can work. Do I have to change every link on ever page manually, or is there some kind of batch operation (like a find and replace) one can use. Also, how would I change the pointer within the navigation bar- after all, it's generated by NOF?

    I never change any internal links to external links, this makes testing the site locally a nightmare

    instead, fix the htaccess file on your server and it is taking care of all internal links becoming https

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

    As long as your web server is Apache, I agree.

    Also, (if not using .htaccess) the only links that would need to be changed to https in link properties are absolute links, not relative links.
