I have a situation where I am generating links in an SSL secured area (no subdomain) to a non SSL page (with a subdomain). The certificate doesn't cover subdomains, so everytime someone clicks on the link to a https:// page where SSL isn't allowed there is a certificate error. Now users can click okay, and then they are redirected to the http:// page, but I would like to create the link directly to http:// rather than https:// I'm using the ssl_requirement plugin. Is there a way to do this? Thanks, N

The main gotcha, is that you are certainly using some_resource_path in your link_to instead of some_resource_url. Because with _path, the protocol used is the one of the current page because it actually generates relative paths. Using _url, the protocol of the page generated can be different as it generates absolute paths. Have you also edited routes.rb to add the correct protocol? -- French training using VoD: http://www.digiprof.fr

We're actually having to use URL for because of the subdomain plugin creates malformed urls for nested resources :-( On Dec 15, 12:53 pm, Fernando P. <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Fixed - thanks Fernando to get me on the right track. Once I looked up protocol in routes I found this post and solved my problem: http://siannopollo.blogspot.com/2007/08/rails-and-...
