HTTPS Related!

[personal profile] tornir gave me a heads-up on this last week, but for Flickr and a Ponycountdown widget. Long story short, I reuse old embedded images for events, such as the February 6 Harmony Day. The old image is sourced from a http URL, so it gets cached as an https p.dreamwidth URL. That works out fine for the Flickr images, but not the Ponycountdown widget in the community sticky. The widget was also using http urls. I didn't see the difference because I don't require my browser to use https, but for [personal profile] tornir, the countdown was not counting down.

The solution: swap in https in the html for the widget at both instances where http was being used for an URL.

Now the widget works for everypony. 8^)
