How do I get Sharebar social media icons to be HTTPS secure?

Recommended Posts

reidwalley

Hi,

 

Our whole site is HTTPS secure. The Sharebar displays as non-secure under HTTPS.

 

Is there a way to make the Sharebar social media icons secure? Maybe something I can put in functions.php? Or something I can add to a Child Theme Sharebar section?

 

Thanks.

 

 

WordPress: 3.8.1

PageLines Framework: 2.4.4

How have you setup your SSL ?

Hi Danny,

 

1. SSL is set up through RapidSSL on our host's server.

2. WordPress admin General Settings is set to HTTPS for the site's WordPress Address and Site Address.

3. So the whole site is HTTPS.

 

4. To functions.php, I added the below code, which comes from: "PageLines SSL: Force LESS CSS and Other Assets to Load via HTTPS"

(From http://v2.pagelinestheme.com/161; and the original article is from: http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/20593-https-issue/?p=120071)

add_action( 'pl_force_ssl', '__return_true' );

add_filter( 'pless_vars', 'make_ssl_vars' );
   function make_ssl_vars( $vars ) {
       $vars['plSectionsRoot'] = str_replace( 'http://', 'https://', $vars['plSectionsRoot'] );
       $vars['plRoot'] = str_replace( 'http://', 'https://', $vars['plRoot'] );
       return $vars;
   }

Thanks.

Hi there, we checked this with our Developer who said that the url's for the buttons in that section is hardcoded, at the time of writing the section there were not https versions. This will be correct in version 2.0 which is coming soon, in the meantime they've advised copying the sharebar section into your child theme and editing the urls directly inside the section code.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Recently I noticed that the Social Share count were reset to zero across several sites I manage.   Some had very high numbers that some clients liked to see.   Can this be refreshed to get the old counts back?

      After changing protocol http to https I have lost all count information next to the icon in the Sharebar extension. All counts is set to zero. Is there any chance to give number of sharing take back? 
      thanks

      For the site https://marshallsirishpub.com I am running
      Wordpress 4.9.4
      Pagelines base theme 1.0.2
      Pagelines Framework 2.5.0
      The share bar specifically Stumble Upon is causing an error when checking SSL for HTTPS at whynopadlock.com.  Here is the errors shown:
      A file with an insecure url of "http://cdn.stumble-upon.com/js/badge_su.js?v=20120613" was loaded on line: 1 of https://www.stumbleupon.com/badge/embed/2/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fmarshallsirishpub.com%2F.
      A file with an insecure url of "http://cdn.stumble-upon.com/css/badges_su.css?v=20120613" was loaded on line: 1 of https://www.stumbleupon.com/badge/embed/2/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fmarshallsirishpub.com%2F.

      Errors that are reported on line 1 are generally not part of the source code. This error may be caused by an external javascript file which is writing to the page, however we are unable to reliably detect these scripts in our automated test.
      Please contact us using the "Need Help?" link below if you need assistance with resolving this error.
      I contacted support at Really Simple SSL which is the plugin we use to convert the site to HTTPS via SSL.  They said I should contact you guys.  Here is what their support had to say via email:
      the sharing bar seems to load the Stumbleupon script over http:// despite being trying to redirect it to https://. The cdn.stumbleupon doesn't seem to have an SSL certificate and therefore refuses to load over https://. I'd suggest to contact the developer of the sharing plugin, the Stumbleupon button can de designed in another way, without it trying to load a script over http://.
      So it seems I need to modify some file in pagelines to make the stumble upon portion of the share bar to read https and not http.  If that's not possible then I need to remove stumble upon from the share bar.
      Thanks.

      I have an old PageLines site that I recently got working with SSL, but there are mixed content errors. There are two problems I've found. One is the search button icon called from forms.less:
      url(@{plRoot}/images/[email protected])
      The second is when PageLines loads FontAwesome from icons.less:

      url('@{iconFont}.eot?v=3.0.1');

      Where is similarly loads the font using http. Any idea why these are loading using http instead of https, and is there a simple way to fix these? I know I need to upgrade the theme, but it's a major project, so for the moment I'd just like to get these secured before taking on switching themes/frameworks.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.
