I found a funny issue using alfresco community 2.0 with https, but not so funny indeed for users!!!!

contains a logo Alfresco-community on the left side, but this logo is not on the local server but is a remote link to alfresco web server…

So when someone use alfresco web interface with IE in secure mode https, he has got a security information pop up at each page telling him 'This page contains both secure and non secure items' … (no problem with Firefox, but there is still user that are not using such a great tool)

And this is REALLY DISTURBING !!!! All the more it is really on each page, and users have to click on yes/no/cancel each time …

The only way to avoid this is to modify the tag-lib, to pack and deploy a new web-client.jar … in order to use a local instead of a remote one…
But I don't like to modify directly alfresco source code …  :(

So please think about it for future version and put this logo on the local web application as other images !!! PLEASE !  :D  :D  :D

Currently this is really not userfriendly and avoid users to use a secure connexion …  :cry:
