Really Simple CAPTCHA
SSL - HTTPS Compatible? (4 posts)

    Is there a way to pull the CAPTCHA image from https:// instead of http://? The insecure image is causing my website to show a "resources are not secure" error when people are on my shopping cart.

    Did you find the way to output the captcha over https?

    same situation.

    Nope, I never found a way around it. I had to create another side bar widget with a non-captcha contact form so the pages would show as secure.

    Here is a method that worked for me. See the following post for the source of this solution.


    Essentially, I edited wp-includes/default-constants.php and changed the wp_plugin_directory_constants function as follows:

    function wp_plugin_directory_constants( ) {
            if ( !defined('WP_CONTENT_URL') )
                    define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', get_option('siteurl') . '/wp-content'); // full url - WP_CONTENT_DIR is defined further up
            if ( !defined('WP_CONTENT_URL') )
                    define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', site_url( 'wp-content') ); // full url - WP_CONTENT_DIR is define with https or http per connection

    Hopefully this will be helpful to others.
