Support » Plugin: Flickr Badges Widget » Requesting content over SSL?

    Hi there,

    I’ve used this plugin within my local environment just fine, no issues. However when I installed it on production server and tried using it I receive the error Error - User has blocked requests through HTTP. Now I suspect that is happening because we have some very strict settings on SSL. I noticed that the images being pulled in from Flickr via the widget are non SSL links (http and not https). Is there any way to force https? I think that is the issue why I’m not getting it to work on production environment.

    I’ve looked through your code and I cannot figure out how to force SSL data from Flickr. It always resolves to call image data from http://farm1.staticflickr.com which is being blocked from my server proxy.

    Actually I think I know what the issue is. This plugin relies on http://www.flickr.com/badge_code_v2.gne which is deprecated and I assume is returning flickr content over unsecured (HTTP) URL.
