#32479 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

HTTPS is forced when uploading images

It seems that since 4.2.0, all pictures added via Media Uploader to the post are by default linked as HTTP_S_. This happens when the user is administering the website via HTTPS.

Before, you could administer the site via HTTPS but all the pictures were given HTTP schema by default - and that's preferred solution, because some blogs use Cloudflare's ECDSA certificates, and when user on Windows XP SP2 or older Android enters the site via HTTP (that has images linked via HTTPS), he or she won't be able to see the HTTPS linked image. ECDSA certs are not supported by older clients

I think there should be an option (or config parameter) that gives you control of what the default images schema should be.

Thanks for the report, rupiee. It's likely that this is a duplicate of #32112. See [32384]. Are you running WP 4.2.2? If so, and if you're still having this issue, please describe in more detail the steps you are taking, and what you mean by "linked as HTTPS" - does this mean the src of the img tag, or the href of the a tag, or something else.
