[resolved] HTTPS is broken with http request to gravatar (5 posts)

    In the comment form, jetpack seems to be displaying a 25 pixel gravatar for the logged in user. I am using HTTPS for my site, but that gravatar is an HTTP request and I don't see any user-facing way to configure it to use HTTPS. Is there a configuration option I can't find or is this a bug?

    Hi Bill, this should be fixed with v1.7 which just came out. Can you please try that out and let us know if you're still having a problem?

    It still is broken, but only in an interesting situation. Unfortunately, that situation obtains every time I use my site. :)

    When I looked at this page: (https://enkrates.com/2012/01/14/installing-gnu-wget-on-os-x-10-7/) in chrome while logged in, I got my tiny gravatar image from http://www.gravatar.com (http://www.gravatar.com/avatar/bbdcc6a88ae2eea37ac1a2366f085344.jpg?s=25), which naturally breaks the SSL. The tiny gravatar says this next to it: "You are commenting using your Writing Near Hills [My blog's name] account." So, it's attached to the account in my blog, rather than some other service (wordpress.com or another one perhaps?) and maybe that's crossing some wires in its logic?

    If I don't log in, and look at that same page and open up the comment block, I get a perfectly secure tiny generic gravatar from secure.gravatar.com (https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/ad516503a11cd5ca435acc9bb6523536?s=25&forcedefault=y&d=retro). So, everything is basically performing as expected, except that my own tiny gravatar is served over http when I'm logged into my own blog. So, it seems like it might be tricky to get this condition, but it happens to me all the time. :)

    Please let me know if I can help with this further. I'd love to keep running jetpack, but I prefer https if I have to choose.

    Bill, we've recently made some more updates to this on our servers. Are you still seeing these issues?
