Support » Plugin: GetSocial » Does not support SSL

  • GetSocial includes assets from Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. using http:// instead of https://. This causes a lot of functionality to break if it’s running on a WordPress site hosted on https.

    I’ve manually replaced the necessary http:// with https:// in getsocial.php, but it would be nice to incorporate this in a future release (or even better, intelligent selection of URI scheme based on the current page).

  • Hey Walter,

    Any chance you might be able to send me your updated version of the getsocial.php? I’ve just upgraded my site to https:// and it’s causing this plugin a lot of problems.

    Thanks, James

    Just open getsocial.php in your editor and replace every occurrence of http:// to https://

    Thanks for the quick response. I had already tried that though, and I noticed a couple of weird things…

    1. The counts for Facebook and Twitter have been reset to 0, whereas G+ still has the same number of likes that it did before I upgraded to https:// (not 0).

    2. StumbleUpon just isn’t loading properly. Instead there’s a bit of bulletpointed text which doesn’t fit in the box.

    I just wondered whether you’d found ways around these problems? I’m not too bothered about the second one, but the loss of Facebook likes is annoying.

    We’ve been using HTTPS from day 1, so we didn’t have the problem of counts being reset. They are incrementing just fine for us.

    I didn’t include StumbleUpon, so don’t know about that one!

    The Twitter count will not reset if you only https the javascript file.
