Not able to embed Gmap4 maps

Post by Joseph Elfelt » October 1st, 2016, 7:05 am

I just made this post:
http://www.oregonhikers.org/forum/viewt ... 33&t=24669

At the end of the post I clicked the gmap4 button on the composing page and pasted a map link in between the gmap4 tags. But instead of getting an embedded map, the Gmap4 link simply appears as text in my post.

Then I searched on Gmap4 and looked at some posts by other people that have embedded Gmap4 maps. All of those embedded maps are now large blank areas in the thread. For example, scroll down on this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=23037&p=175007

I suspect that the source of this problem might be the fact that earlier this year I switched all of my domains from http to https in order to provide greater security to users.

I updated the custom bbcode to recognize the URL when it started with https:



The old ones will have to be updated somehow, since I'm assuming there is a problem redirecting from http -> https inside an iframe.

Ok, I just replaced the http with https in the old ones, so they should work now too.
