I'm really mystified that when I change to using https the getSkinUrl() seems to call into a procedure updateParamDefaults there is no param for secure (i.e. my content is getting blocked)?
I notice this post from Marius https://magento.stackexchange.com/questions/16001/geturl-getskinurl-displaying-insecure-content-on-h... where he says use
Whilst that doesn't work for me I notice that none on the base theme phtml use this so how is https getting to skin (etc) files?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You have activated the SSL in the configuration?
You have changed the secure_base_url to https?
Yes, the main request is getting https but its the skin files which aren't.
I'm fascinated as to why Marius would say add the array(_secure) param to the getSkinUrl call when that's nowhere in the base phtmls.
