Ok, I see. Unfortunately it looks like an upgraded ‘pagepeeker’ account would be needed or a Free unbranded one requesting a link back.
Maybe someone else can chime in on their experience with it.
Honestly, I wouldn’t think Mark would put something like PagePeeker in the theme if it requires additional fees in order to have secure pages, however I’m not 100%.
Haven’t dug through all the code to see how everything is being handled, There may be caching or something else he’s doing to avoid using the direct non-secure link. Dunno.
Not really sure what to expect anymore with PP themes. PagePeeker and Elementor have free versions, but to do things you think wouldn’t be too advance (or just work how you would expect) seems to require purchasing the upgrades.
