Support » Plugin: Facebook Tab Manager » Facebook Tabs – Fancybox – image lightbox shortcode question

  • Resolved janco


    I’m using the Facebook Tabs plugin to add tabs/apps to Facebook when new posts are added, which was working great before the change from the static version of the Striking theme (available via Themeforest) to Striking_R, which is a recently released responsive version of the same theme. Facebook specs dictate that any images/attachments which are pulled into a Facebook app do so in a secure way (ssl – https), and the site has had its own signed cert since early on (which was purchased in part for this purpose).

    When adding images using the media – images – image theme shortcode and setting them to display full-size in a lightbox, they’re added by attachment id, which is converted somewhere to an src url. I’d like to modify that process such that those srcs begin with https instead of http, which I’m assuming will be okay because of the presence of the secure cert.

    To see what I mean, you can view the Facebook app in question by going to and clicking on the “14 Reasons Why” tab, which will open the app in unliked view. The app is setup to display the hidden images in their layout after the Like button is clicked.

    My question has mainly to do with whether the process that changes the image attachment id to a fully qualified src url is handled by the theme (Striking Multiplex), should be handled by the plugin, or is managed by WordPress core itself. I know that for static images and other files (e.g., scripts, etc.) which are inserted into a Facebook Tab post using a fully qualified src/url instead of an attachment id, everything works fine.
