Myself and my developer are having issues trying to force Magento to use https for all links and add the www. before our website domain.
Currently, if you go to www. thepoultryhatchery .com it will automatically drop the www. we Want the www., how do we fix that? We also have an SSL certificate, which gives us the "green bar".
If you use the https:// in front of the domain above, it messes up the sites layout.
If you just go to thepoultryhatchery .com and click the login button in the top upper right hand corner, you will see it will force http on the login screen but errors still happen.
Godaddy does not support Magento, so he gave me this url called whynopadlock .com/ and when you copy and past the login url:
it tells you whats wrong but we cant seem to fix this issue.
We've previously tried to go into system --> configuration --> Web --> (see attached screenshot).
When we tried to change the url to www. and add the https we got a 404 error and couldnt access the website period. We had to go in the database and change from 1 to 0 or something of that such to regain access.
How do we properly force https for all pages, both stores, front end and backend. and make sure all links display www. in front of the domain. so all urls should look like https:// www. ThePoultryHatchery .com
please provide as many details, new o magento.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Ps. We are on Magento Community ver. 188.8.131.52
Thanks so much!
