      Description

      Not able to get the auto linking glossary items to work for guests on the login page. It works for all the other pages (the glossary itself and page resources open to guests), but not from the front page

      Upon some research it was determined that if https for logins is DISABLED it does work. Seems to be mixed content issue, as the link points to an http page while the login page is https.

      1. Create glossary link on the login page
      2. make sure “Use HTTPS for logins “ check box is checked in HTTP Security Settings
      3. When clicking the glossary link, a revolving loading wheel will endlessly spin without ever reaching the linked glossary page
      4. Click the login hyperlink in the "this shoule be a glossary link - login” sentence in order to experience the behavior.
