    using plugin version 2

    "External HTTPS Elements" option is missing and all http://*.googleapis.com are no longer redirected to HTTPS.

    Also, on your FAQ page you state that:

    "YouTube videos - YouTube does not allow videos to be streamed over HTTPS. YouTube videos will have to be removed from secure pages."

    YouTube does allow https embed URLs, more info here:

    OK, now i see in the readme that the External HTTPS Elements feature has been removed as of version 2. I also see that the plugin looks for a list of URLs that can be changed to HTTPS:

    'wordpress-https_external_urls' => array(), // External URL's that are okay to rewrite to HTTPS

    Where can we add/modify the list of URLs that can be changed? Until we can, the plugin is broken.

    Hey Vezado,

    There was a bug in 2.0's external URL validation function that made some valid HTTPS URL's come back as invalid, so the plugin did not rewrite them to HTTPS. This has been fixed in the most current version.

    Works perfect now Mike, thanks! I converted the template back to the original http URLs and your plugin version rewrites them correctly again.

    Thanks for getting it fixed quickly.
