Help with SSL URL

Recommended Posts

Int the services tab customer's side section in WHMCS next to each active service there is a lock showing customer their site doesn't have a SSL certificate, as you can see on this screenshot below, but when customer clicks that icon is taken to this page below that I don't know where is coming from. I would like to be able to redirect my customer to a another customized URL I have. Thank you for your help.

This is where my customers are redirected when click the no secure lock in their accounts:

the thread below is the solution I posted a year ago for v7.7 - the jQuery tweak certainly still works in v7.9.1, but i'm not sure about the template changes option.

it's almost as if the feature was added to increase MarketConnect revenue for WHMCS. 🤑

Thank you, but I am afraid that method doesn't work any more for WHMCS 7.9.1.

the jQuery solution definitely still does - I doubled-checked that before posting the above yesterday. 🙂

for example, in the screenshot below, i've changed the SSL link to go to the BBC News site - not a good place to buy SSL certificates, but it proves the point that the red padlock links are changing on the services (and domains) pages!

using this technique, that link can be changed to a local page, e.g a specific cart group, a sales page on your site or as above, an external site - it can even be disabled so that the whole row just links to its product/domain details page.

ideally, someone should convert it to a hook, but as a proof of concept, it definitely still works in v7.9.1 thanks.png

actually, in an ideal world, there would have been a field in general settings where you could have added a specific sales URL yourself - but sadly, over the last few years, the default position of WHMCS is for them to make decisions on the users behalf and not give their paying users choices.

Thank you, I think I found the file to edit at templates/six/js/scripts.min.js. Now my problem is, where am I supposed to put the URL when I want my customer to be redirected. I just see this code below, but I am not sure where to put that URL.

that's the one - though if you're unfamiliar with it, then it might be easier to edit scripts.js (in the same folder but not used by WHMCS), go to a site like jscompress.com and compress the updated code... and then paste the compressed code into scripts.min.js

worst case, I can send you the updated scripts.min.js to use and then you can just do a string replace on the BBC domain in any text editor, but have a go at doing it yourself first.

precisely how depends on where you want to redirect the end user.

so if you have a product group in your cart for Comodo SSL Certs, and it has the product group = 5, then the code to link to that group would be...

    jQuery(document).on('click', '.ssl-state.ssl-inactive', function(e) {
        e.preventDefault();
        var gidvalue="5";
        window.location.href = "cart.php?gid=" + gidvalue;
    });

technically, you could drop the var line and add its value directly to the URL, but I assume I originally added it as a separate line to simplify it for those users to just enter a product group ID separately rather than editing the URL itself... so the following should work too..

    jQuery(document).on('click', '.ssl-state.ssl-inactive', function(e) {
        e.preventDefault();
        window.location.href = "cart.php?gid=5";
    });

... and if you wanted to link it to an external site, then that last line becomes..

        window.location.href = "https://www.bbc.co.uk/news";

frustratingly, i've almost got this working as a hook, but it's changing the URL on all states, and not just inactive... so go with modifying scripts.min.js 🙂

I used both and for some reason it didn't work.

I am currently using group 5 for my certificates page in WHMCS where I want to redirect customers. So I think the value I put nin the code should be fine.

Is there any way I can send you both files scripts.js and scripts.min.js and you help me with the edits. Just in case I can pay for that.

that wasn't a random guess on my part - I took a quick look at your site before posting to find the correct SSL group! 🙂

i'd only need scripts.js - I could edit that and minify it... I should ask, which version of WHMCS are you using ?

I am using WHMCS Versión: 7.9.1. You can download the file here: http://cloud2.zoolz.com/s-hVCwX26f

rename your existing /templates/six/js/scripts.min.js file and then upload the attached file - you may need to do a hard refresh in the browser, e.g CTRL + F5 on Firefox, to ensure that it's using the updated file.

this is tested as working on the v7.9.1 dev - I don't have a product group #5, so it's redirecting to cart.php instead, but it's definitely not going to the SSL page.

if it doesn't work, let me know. 🙂
