  • Resolved microberto


    Hi, I have SexyBookmarks, WordPress 3.2.1, and WordPress HTTPS 1.9.1 on this site:

    Ron Paul T-Shirt

    If you add this item to the cart, and then proceed to checkout, you will get an insecure error from IE. Using Google Chrome Developer Tools, I’m getting this error:

    The page at displayed insecure content from

    What’s funny is that on this page, I have a custom field titled HideSexyBookmarks and it is set to 1, and that is working! So why is this sprite.png even trying to load???

    So I need a solution to either (or both) of these issues:

    1. Stop loading sprite.png when I disable SexyBookmarks on a page.
    2. Send over HTTPS on an HTTPS page.

    I am even telling WordPress HTTPS to FORCE everything to HTTPS, and it doesn’t work with this. I assume the filter is getting underneath it or something.

    This site has no cache plugin on.

  • No updates on this? I don’t think I’m the only one with this issue.

    I’m experiencing this same issue.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I added before line 792 of include/public.php:

    if ( is_ssl() ) $spritegen_basepath = preg_replace( '#^http://#', 'https://', $spritegen_basepath );

    And this fixed the issue. Hope this helps others.

    I’d appreciate it though if the developers could acknowledge this though and hopefully put something like this in the next update, because next time we upgrade this change will disappear lol


    Thanks for sharing Jason. I’ve been trying to fins a solution to the same problem for ages.

    Would you mind pasting the existing code before and after where you inserted the new code? I tried your code but it didn’t work, so I’m thinking I pasted it incorrectly.

    Also, are you using the beta version?


    Hi all,

    The reason WordPress HTTPS does not fix this is because we load some assets via javascript, which gets generated well before the WordPress HTTPS filters go into effect.

    We have a fix coming for this very soon; it will work both with and without the WordPress HTTPS plugin.

    Hi all,

    The latest version of SexyBookmarks now fully supports SSL. Please update!


    When I uninstall and reinstall sexybookmarks it remembers my settings and for some reason I can’t get it to work again.

    Can someone please detail a manual way of removing everything so I can do a fresh install?
