WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[resolved] Issue linking to JSP page in bookmarks (5 posts)

    Found a strange problem today. We added a link (in Links of wp-admin) to this address:
    and added a widget to display our bookmarks.

    We noticed the link kept changing to the non-HTTPS version. When I disabled the WordPress HTTPS plugin, this stopped happening, so I knew the issue was there somewhere.

    To make a long story short: The function 'fixExtensions' in Parse.php seems to be recognising the link as a javascript resource. I think it then attempts to secure or unsecure the link per other settings.

    We found another way around the problem, but I thought I should report the issue. .jsp is not an uncommon file extension, and others might have the same issue.

    Cheers for a great plugin!

    I am having a similar problem but unfortunately have not found a work around. Any ideas how to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm also having this problem, where any HTTPS links to URLs ending in .jsp are being rewritten to HTTP upon updating a post in the WP editor (both visual and HTML view).

    Here's the relevant text from the console:

    Unsecure External URLs: [  ] post.php:1338
    [FIXED] Element: <script> https://www.xyz.com/page.jsp => http://www.xyz.com/page.jsp post.php:1339

    I was able to work around this problem by using a URL shortening service such as TinyURL.

    I'll have a fix out in the next release. If you'd like, try the development version and let me know if it works for you.

    Thanks so much for addressing this so quickly! I think I'll wait until the next stable release, as URL shortening is working for now.
