Connection issue - Can I go without?

Recommended Posts



I have a connection issue with my Pagelines Platform 5 Installation:


Platform 5 Connection IssueSSL: certificate subject name '*.wpengine.com' does not match target host name 'www.pagelines.com'


I have already tried inserting define( 'PL_SSL_NO_VERIFY', true ); into my wp-config.php file. Did not solve it.
I am unable to solve it as explained in the "Readme first" posts, because the hosting service refuses to whitelist those domain/IPs listed

I am able to manually download any files I might need to, though. It is only my wordpress installation that cannot connect to those servers, not my computer.


So my question is pretty straightforward: Is there any way I can bypass adding the account and add any new plugins, extensions and updates manually? It would be my best choice, I guess.

      For the site https://marshallsirishpub.com I am running
      Wordpress 4.9.4
      Pagelines base theme 1.0.2
      Pagelines Framework 2.5.0
      The share bar specifically Stumble Upon is causing an error when checking SSL for HTTPS at whynopadlock.com.  Here is the errors shown:
      A file with an insecure url of "http://cdn.stumble-upon.com/js/badge_su.js?v=20120613" was loaded on line: 1 of https://www.stumbleupon.com/badge/embed/2/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fmarshallsirishpub.com%2F.
      A file with an insecure url of "http://cdn.stumble-upon.com/css/badges_su.css?v=20120613" was loaded on line: 1 of https://www.stumbleupon.com/badge/embed/2/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fmarshallsirishpub.com%2F.

      Errors that are reported on line 1 are generally not part of the source code. This error may be caused by an external javascript file which is writing to the page, however we are unable to reliably detect these scripts in our automated test.
      Please contact us using the "Need Help?" link below if you need assistance with resolving this error.
      I contacted support at Really Simple SSL which is the plugin we use to convert the site to HTTPS via SSL.  They said I should contact you guys.  Here is what their support had to say via email:
      the sharing bar seems to load the Stumbleupon script over http:// despite being trying to redirect it to https://. The cdn.stumbleupon doesn't seem to have an SSL certificate and therefore refuses to load over https://. I'd suggest to contact the developer of the sharing plugin, the Stumbleupon button can de designed in another way, without it trying to load a script over http://.
      So it seems I need to modify some file in pagelines to make the stumble upon portion of the share bar to read https and not http.  If that's not possible then I need to remove stumble upon from the share bar.

      Hi, even though I just got a SSL certificate, I can't get the green padlock to appear due to the following error:
      :A file with an insecure url of "http://yemoonyah.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-boxes/check.svg" was loaded via the javascript file: https://yemoonyah.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.12.4 on line 3. The insecure URL may not be directly contained in the script file and may exist elsewhere."
      I figured if I delete and re-install the plugin it might fix the problem but will my boxes on the website still be there? Or do I have to redesign everything all over again if I delete the plugin and then re-install it?

      I have a staging site up that I have been working on, and tonight was having PL5 account connection issues:
      I refreshed, didn't work, so I followed instructions and disconnected and clicked connect to get a new token, and got white screen with the following php error:
      Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

      Hi there,
      I've getting a recurring error:
      "Platform 5 Connection IssuecURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired"
      I can't get the Extension Engine to load. It just times out. Same happens on two different sites that I run (www.innerear.co.uk and www.tradtv.scot, which I'm currently rebuilding).
      I've tried disabling all plugins (apart from Platform 5) andI contacted my hosts and they aren't blocking any IP addresses. I've deactivated and reactivated the Platform 5 plugin and disconnected and reconnected my account.
      Is there an issue with the Pagelines SSL certificate or something else causing the connection issue and stopping the extension engine from loading (it just spins with the LOADING cog and nothing happens, regardless of how long I leave it).
      Any help much appreciated.

      i wanted to point out at this time, that i am very very very happy with platform 5. (before i used DMS and others) as some ppl talking here some things are not working, i can say the opposite working on my Web:
      1. UberMenu
      is running fine, without shortcodes or "tricks" necessary - it runs out of the box with no problems in a few clicks configured. also further ubermenu plugins 100%
      2. Shift Nav
      As a further extension of UberMenu - also runs fine out of the box with a few clicks. also combine with ubermenu no problem (Ubermenu for normal nav, shift nav for mobile)
      3. https / SSL

      I user commodo instant ssl and everything runs fine (10 minutes installation) - no mixed content errors nothing everything very smooth :-). Google SERPS have been updated to https URLS wihtin 1 day(!)
      4. MaxCDN
      I use MaxCDN for sitespeed as i implemented also video backgrounds. it runs perfect with wp supercache
      5. Nginx
      I also run nginx on my webspace, also with that there a no problems with platform 5. I also use nginx streaming for video files, works perfect.
      For all points there a no functions codes necessary or implement shortcodes - it runs out of the box and makes it easy for everybody, whos a little firm in technical matters. Some guys here in the forum make it really complicated :-)
      I am working with pagelines around 5 years now, and platform 5 / framework 5 is the best tool ever
      BUT i am missing to configure site headlines h1-hx as in DMS possible easy way. It was a great way to make seo sitestructure. now there are lots of empty headlines or headlines or jumped over. in seo this causes errors in sites structure. this should be reworked.
      if you have any questions on pl5 with 1.-5. just ask me here....
