What hosting do people use these days for SS4 for a small-scale marketing site in the US? I’m really out of touch with the options.

yeah, that's what alternate_protocol used to fix in SS3

like the default domain is http so its jsut ending there

could it be the webserver enforcing http?...

troubleshooting via the sysadmin, cheers for the tips though 🙂

it's that wonderful situation where it works locally, and I don't have direct access to change code on the server 😄

if not try backtracing the <% base_tag %>code side and see what it ggets from where, sorry hopefully someone else has your answer
