Description (last modified by Scott González)


I believe I've followed all your instructions not to hotlink but I simply cannot use the themeswitcher the moment I try from my SSL site. It works fine in regular http.

I do get the dropdown, it does point to my local files but I am running an site and the themeswitchertool.js file that makes the whole magilla works points to a PHP file, namely, "parseTheme.css.php?blahblah" and that is the sticking point.

I have it pointing to, "href="" and I get the dreaded 502 error.

I am including my code at the end but not matter what I do I cannot run this with SSL which is a hard requirement as otherwise I get the dreaded "mixed content warning" in all browsers and that is a deal killer. I am including my modified code to remove all hot links. Please assist.

Thanks very much,

SSL isn't supported on themeroller's builds. I recommend using the compiled themes available on google's CDN ( see the list at ) that support both http/https. Also, they'll be considerably faster as they aren't generating content live for each and every request.

Past that, ThemeSwitcher needs to take advantage of cdn copies and not generate live; I'll put that as "patch welcome", but will surely need to be an internal effort.
