Why are some web apps linking properly from our Open Data page and others don't? (http vs htps)

We have several of our web applications shared with our Open Data page.  They show up in the list as expected with a little box and arrow at the end of the title telling you it will navigate away from the page.  When you click on some of them, they will go straight to the application and other when clicked go to the ESRI Open Data about page.  As far as we can tell, it seems that it's linked to http applications vs https.  The http apps open just fine.  

This brings up another odd question which is why are some of the http and others https.  We switched our Organization over to https about a month ago.  My understanding was that it would switch all items.  The differences between which are http and which are https seem to have nothing to do with the timeline of switching the organization.  Two apps that were developed about two years ago are different.

We thought it may have something to do with individual accounts but think we have ruled this out.  If you would like to test this out, here is our open data page...

Hi Matt,

Thanks so much for looking.  I had actually figured out, or rather solved, my issue the day before your post.  Turns out the one thing all the app links that were sending you to the ESRI Open Data Default page had a truncated version of the URL listed in the URL box under the Web Mapping Applications Settings on the Item Detail page.  Our organization recently switched to https and apparently the applications that had only the second half of the URL listed would go the the ESRI default page.  Once I added the first half of the URL and left out the "s" in https, all links went to the respective applications.  

Thanks for the reply and reminder to update the post with the fix!

Hi Melanie,

I looked around your site a bit, and it seemed to me that all Apps came up as HTTP, and all Maps came up HTTPS. I never saw the Open Data About page.

Don't know whether this is helpful or not...
