Share Location https Problems

    I have had a few problems since turning my site to https, most I have got over so far, like turning off the addthis plugin, you need to amend urls on that from http to https to remove errors. Anyway when it was http it asks for your location, you click the box and it takes your ip and everything works just fine. When you swap to https, you click it to say give your location and nothing happens. You enter another page and it asks you again for your location and nothing happens.. I can change my own location via the dashboard, I have left that as Australia for the moment so I can see if anything changes, it beats using Afghanistan.

    Does anyone have any ideas, I am guessing I need to put https in manually in the plugin but I do not know the file, the app is connecting to google so you would presume its https anyway. You can half understand the problem as you are asking for peoples details, which is slightly unsecure in one sense, but there should be a workaround, as most people using themes like this want it to be https, due to selling items.

    Can I ask why do you want to run your whole site over https? Any specific reason? Unless you are dealing with sensitive data using https just does not make sense. It loads your site much, much slower and does not offer anything extra. It is mainly suitable for payment pages (where you collect payment data directly on your site) or possibly also on login pages where people need to enter usernames and passwords.

    It has not slowed my pages down so far, but I don’t have 10,000 listings yet, so it might do.. If I could just set it to payment pages I probably would, but I do not know how to do this.. I have tried several plugins, the really simple ssl works the best so far with less errors, I can only see the map problem so far.. I have seen other similar sites go https site wide and not seen any problems to them, but if there is no other fix I would just be happy for payment pages, but as I said I don’t know how to.. The link I showed above shows the same system working on a https address, so I take it that the files with the theme have not been written for https.. If someone had code to change the .htaccess or config or where I could amend the pop I would appreciate it. I cannot understand why the problem is not solved on here.. I would of thought 90% of people would use https on directory sites that take payments..

    I just need to add an S in a file but I don’t know what file.. Which files work the google map.. I made the url above https and it works.. That is all I have to do swap things from http to https, just like with addthis plugin..

    Leon, you do realise running your entire site on https will almost certainly stuff up your Google / Bing rankings don’t you?

    I have read differently it adds 1% extra bonus to google and bing/yahoo is like childs play getting things top of that.. There are several articles saying that google wants more websites to be https and will reward them with a little extra bonus in the algorithm.

    https://hungryhouse.co.uk <<< This website is all https and tops google for a lot of things, I don’t think it uses google maps much though.. But in my eyes it effects nothing.. I don’t know where you have read that. All the major websites in the world are https..

    Also I just did a quick check on keyword for other websites I look after and my competition who have https are above me.. So I really don’t go with what you have said.

    We’ll agree to disagree then Leon, as you obviously have far more experience at SEO than I do 😉

    I run several psychic and spiritual websites, on some I pay £2 a click on google adverts so I watch it like a hawk. Going up one place, or a page can double your business overnight, I just did my usual check and went 10 pages deep on several keywords and on top page were two https sites on others just http sites.. Not saying it makes a massive difference, but I would not say it hinders people, if you have research that backs up what you say, it will add weight to your argument.

    Anyway, its not solving the problem.. No one has said how to make just the payment pages https, or resolved the main issues, which I think is down to the js files not having https in them.. I have read googlemaps offers both but I have not managed to change anything in the theme.. Bar noticing the jquery.js file was slightly out of date, but something else is connecting in and I cannot put my finger on it as yet.. There may be a simple .htaccess command or something but I cannot find it..

    LINE 532 jQuery.getJSON(‘https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?latlng=’+ position.coords.latitude +’,’+position.coords.longitude+’&sensor=true’,{

    I have fixed the problem

    In file core.ajax.js in js file section add an s to the http to create

    jQuery.getJSON(‘https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?latlng=’+ position.coords.latitude +’,’+position.coords.longitude+’&sensor=true’,{

    You can star me if you want 🙂

    I also use https for all pages and have the right jQuery with https://maps.googleapis.com ….

    But location share still doesn’t work for me. Is this Bug still unsolved?
