How to deliver images via HTTPS in WordPress?

Cloudinary supports delivering images via HTTPS as well. This can be done by simply setting the URL to use HTTPS instead of HTTP. For more information:

In WordPress, when you click on "Cloudinary Upload/Insert" to insert a new image into a post, you can set the Protocol to HTTPS:

    So for anyone using a Word Press theme that has a drag and drop builder for creating webpages and posts most of the theme developers won't work with Cloudinary for some reason despite Cloudinary making attempts to work with them so there are some work arounds for not being able to press the cloudinary library button from within the page builder in the modules section.
    If you keep all the files on your Host site and then click the upload to cloudinary from within the Media library. Then when you're in the module builder of whatever theme builder you're using just click the ordinary add media button that comes on all word press themes and then chose the appropriate image and it will set it up on your page or post with the correct cloudinary url. If you're using Beaver Builder or WPMUdev's builder or Divi builder or Divi theme from Elegant themes don't even bother hitting the cloudinary media insert button in your text editor window because it won't work the theme builders disable it somehow. To deliver images via HTTPS in Wordpress the easiest way is to just set up the HTTPS header in the General settings tab and then use "Simple SSL" plugin and it will force all insecure files to change url to Https automatically. Very simple.

    Hi Itay, is it possible to set "https" as default?

    Hi Rene,
    We plan to add this option going forward, and will update here when done.
    Meantime, for bulk purposes I would suggest using 'search & replace' plugins to change all "HTTP://" occurrences to "HTTPS://".
    You may also find Brad's idea above interesting for your needs.
