Support » Plugin: Jetpack by » SSL Nightmare!!!!

  • For those of you doing eCommerce on WordPress — save yourself 8hours and DON’T use Jetpack if you want you SSL certificate to actually work!

    I had a bunch of problems getting the padlock to display on the interior pages of my site in Firefox even though in Chrome the padlock was always displayed. Same issue in Internet Explorer where that annoying bar would pop up saying “only displaying secure content” and then when you’d tell it to show everything the page still looked the same! 😮 We also couldn’t get a redirect from within cPanel to function because of some “mystery” interference from my site. After reading all over the net about people with similar problems I found what seemed to fix everything.

    One of the problems is “mixed content” (links to unencrypted images/scripts being sent out, etc.) which Firefox really frowns upon. Your padlock gets yanked on any page displaying “mixed content.” Two things had to be taken off my pages:

    #1 — AWeber mailing list plugin/widget that was sending a Javascript out to a non-https:// link

    #2 — This one was a bigger deal: Jetpack

    Having the stats feature is NOT worth it. I hope this helps someone down the line!

    If your domain uses an SSL certificate, Jetpack should also switch to using HTTPS for all requests.

    Do you happen to remember if the problems were linked to a specific Jetpack module? I’d be happy to know more about the problem, and see if we can fix it in a future Jetpack release. You can also contact us via this contact form if you wish to give us more details about your installation and the problems you experienced:
