URLs added twice if any link is using https

    Hi again,

    could you maybe upload your testsite somwhere (so that it's possible to reproduce your report?)

    And you are really sure that the other 30 https-links don't appear anywhere on your site?

    Hi Again,

    Thanks for the reply! I uploaded the site to a free host. It is located at http://webvulscanner.net84.net/testsitewithvulns/
    If you click on the privacy link, you will see it redirects to itself but with https. However it seems to be timing out on the free hosting site but it works fine on localhost.

    I just did a crawl on the uploaded site and it only actually finds the 32 links so it seems to be working there: 31 links with http and 1 with https. However when I crawl the exact same site on my localhost using xammp, it picks up 62 links: 31 links with http and the same 31 links with https. Do you have any idea why this might be happening? There is definitely no links to them on my localhost site as it is the exact same source code of the uploaded site.

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry problem resolved! Once one of the links were redirected to https, the user (or crawler in this case) would stay using https when browsing the site as all the links on the site link to relatives paths therefore keeping https in the domain name. Thanks for the help anyway!
