Mixed Content Errors from Disqus on HTTPS Site


Yesterday I noticed that our SSL connection on this blog had errors due to “mixed content”, meaning our HTTPS site was loading additional content that was served over insecure HTTP. After a little bit of digging in the console, I discovered that the issue was due to our Disqus plugin loading over http from pixel.tapad.com (we've seen other reports with lore.circulate.com as well).

I found this great blog post describing the issue as well as a fix, but even better, on that blog post a tech lead from Disqus commented with a better fix. Kudos to him for doing that!

How to fix mixed content errors from Disqus on your HTTPS site:

  1. Login to your Disqus administrator account and go into your HTTPS site's settings.
  2. Select Advanced settings.
  3. Uncheck “Enable anonymous cookie targeting for your site's visitors”.
  4. Press Save.

That's it, fixed!

nice work on finding this connect Kelly!!!
It's too bad that Disqus still isn't ready to have their visitor tracking for ads HTTPS friendly
