DW CS3 HTTPS Problem

Greetings to the community.

I have been using DW CS3 since 2007, and everything has worked great til now.

The problem is from switching my server using HTTP to HTTPS.

When I would click on a photo in design view, and then below in "src" and "link"

where there will be the name of the photo, xxx.jpg and then when I would put in the

whole web address, HTTPS://www.xyz.com/xxx.jpg, DW freezes.

When I did this same thing using HTTP, and not HTTPS, it worked flawlessly.

Is DW CS3 not compatible with HTTPS, or do I need to do something else to make

DW CS3 accept HTTPS?

Here is the code:

<h1><a href="Main.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="Main-SM.jpg" width="353" height="600" /></a></h1>

Then:

<h1><a href="https://www.xyz.com/Main.jpg" target="_blank"><img src=https://www.xyz.com/"Main-SM.jpg" width="353" height="600" /></a></h1>

Thank you for helping.

p.s. "xyx" is intended to be generic.

Help with what?   CS3 is 11 year old, EOL software.  It hasn't received an update in ages.  Working with a modern code editor (any editor) would be an upgrade from what you have right now.

Did you copy/paste your code?  If so:

<img src=https://www.xyz.com/"Main-SM.jpg" width="353" height="600" />

                                                        ^                      ^

Should be:

<img src="https://www.xyz.com/Main-SM.jpg" width="353" height="600" />

                 ^                                                             ^

HTH,

Hi,

It is like that, with the quotes like this:

<img src="https://www.xyz.com/Main-SM.jpg" width="353" height="600" />

I put in the http address before the xxx.jpg, save it, and then upload it.

Like I said, it worked fine with http, and hangs with https when I enter the

https address in the src or link box and then simply click anywhere on the

design view, DW freezes.  I did notice at one time, that a prompt asked me

to enter a valid http address.  So, that is why I am not sure that this version

of DW is compatible with https.  Everything works fine with uploading images

as long as I just upload them to my server without entering it with my https

address.  The reason I need to do this, is because I sell on eBay, and eBay's

html code needs to have the full address of the images. I don't know why this

is so.  As a workaround, I could put in a link to my server site, I think...

Thanks for your reply

Is there a reason you're using the full absolute path for your images?

If the page is also located within your https site, you should only need to use a relative path like:

<a href="../Main-SM.jpg" width="353" height="600">

That would allow DW to use the local image from your defined site (without accessing the internet) while working, and allow the website to access the https image stored on your server when viewed from a browser.

Edit: Oops, missed that part about Ebay, nevermind.

Is the server that you're testing on have a TLS certificate???  I don't want to assume, and you didn't mention.

If you do not have a cert, you need one.  If you DO have a cert, and it isn't working, that is an issue to take up with the cert issuer.

I am using Hurricane Electric, and they have set up a certification SSL that they use called Let’s Encrypt. Could this be a substandard certificate that could be causing the problem?

I use Let's Encrypt, and they are great, for a free cert.  Did you have them set it up on the webserver?  Or did you do it?

Are you trying to view this in Live View, or something?

CS3 is 11 year old software.  I never used it and don't have access to it.  But Design View is not reliable.  Always test your work in real browsers.  If it works in browser and the code is valid, you should be good to go.

I have narrowed it down to a problem with Dreamweaver cs3. When I want to view an image in design view that I get from my https server, Dreamweaver hangs.  If I disable "show external files", then everything works, except that I can't see the images now in design view, which is a real bummer.  So, I have to keep on previewing the images in the browser to see if everything looks good.  In this mode, I can paste the code into eBay's html box, and it works.  I wish there was an update, hack or setting to make cs3 work like normal with https.

When I was using my server as http, and not https, none of this was a problem at all.  So, Dreamweaver cs3 for some reason can't handle https images in normal design view.  I really wonder if cs5 or 6 would not have this problem?

I can see remotely hosted images in lDreamweaver CC.

Try it with this code.

<!doctype html>

<html lang="en">

<head>

<meta charset="utf-8">

<title>Image</title>

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

</head>

<body>

<h1>Remote Images Test</h1>

<p><img src="https://dummyimage.com/400x300" alt="placeholder"> </p>

<p><img src="https://dummyimage.com/400x300" alt="placeholder"></p>

I tried your code and it worked fine.  When I put in the src reference to my images with the rest of your code,

<p><img src="https://www.jazbrd.com/eBay/Testing/ " alt="placeholder"> </p>

<p><img src="https://www.jazbrd.com/eBay/Testing/ " alt="placeholder"></p>

It did not work and froze in design view with "display external images" checked.

Thanks for looking into this some more. (-:

Try an image as the source rather than an HTML document as in

<img src="https://www.jazbrd.com/eBay/Testing/Main-SM.jpg">

Just tried it in the latest version of Dreamweaver and it hangs.

Not sure what went wrong, but it does seem to work now, after re-opening Dreamweaver

I guess for now, I will buy a super wide monitor screen so I can display DW design view and Firefox, as the "design view", at the same time, or maybe I need to buy a different web designing software.  I certainly do not want to spend a lot of money on the same but newer software just to have it do the same thing.  I wish Adobe would help with this.  I just need to upload my images to eBay with my template I created in DW CS3, and sometimes I help others with their simple ​web sites.

Thanks. For what I do with my very simple template and uploading images, I thought I could just keep using this version of DW, as I thought it would just accept https.  I see I am wrong about that.  I will use cs3 in a "work-around" way until I find something else like what you have shown here.

Thanks again for everyone's help.
