Support » Plugin: Unique Headers » Does this plugin serve header images with relative urls?

  • I’ve been frustrated trying to add e-commerce to a site because the header images are called with absolute urls. This breaks the page’s SSL, resulting in a security warning popping up for the visitor.

    I need a way to have header images coded with:
    src="/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/vista.jpg"
    instead of:
    src="http://mywebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/vista.jpg"

    Can this plugin do that?

    No. Using relative URLs is the wrong way to go about fixing that issue. If a plugin is coded correctly, it should handle https URLs just fine. The problem is usually caused by plugins making use of the WP_PLUGIN_URL constant rather than the function (which I can’t remember the name of right now) which checks if the page is using https or not and serves the corresponding URL accordingly.

    So to answer your question … no it does not use relative URLs, but it should work just fine for your purposes anyway.

    Sorry for not replying sooner btw, I was on holiday in New Zealand when you posted this.
