Force un-secure an external URL, from a secure page? (2 posts)

    I've found workarounds for a number of various secure/insecure issues using this (fantastic) plugin....but one that I can't figure out is how to force "unsecure" an external link.

    Right now, the link is generated on the page and the plugin switches the "http://" to "https://" for an external resource...in this case, that resource returns a 404 error when one tries to access it securely. I just need a way to selectively "unsecure" an external URL. Anyone? Thx...rp

    I am also having this issue. Trying to simply link to a site that is not my client's, and it is converted to https://. This is a custom menu item.

    Edit: this is happening on elements referenced within the content as well (links to other sites)
