Hi,
This plugin uses http when linking to twitter facebook etc, all these need to be moved to https

some browsers throw ssl alerts and block/hide the links because insecure (http content from https site)

Garvin, I've manually changed a couple of these after eventually also finding the tpl in templates I think it was as changing in the plugin did nothing, either way I expect these wiped out on next update, could we get this plugin fixed so we dont need to make manual mods please?

Cheers

Hi,
The findmore plugin got moved to https://github.com/s9y/additional_plugi ... ster/alpha a while ago, which signals it got abandoned. I don't remember that properly, but I think it was about it having no maintainer and too many services listed that don't exist anymore.

We do have a current alternative: serendipity_event_social (Share Buttons). It uses a legal, privacy preserving alternative to the old share buttons. I have it enabled in my blog if you want to have a look.
could we get this plugin fixed so we dont need to make manual mods please?
If you'd like to work on the plugin, you could send a pull request with your changes to https://github.com/s9y/additional_plugins . But it being moved out of the main path should mean that you do not have to worry much about updates overwriting your changes (though it will need fixes to work with PHP 8, not sure how this will be solved).

Ohhh, OK, I'll have to check timestamps but it might be removed for new installs, it still shows on existing installs after upgrades, still lists Garvin as its maintainer :)

Yeah, I'm sure we didn't remove it for old installs. That's something I can only imagine for an emergency, as in a plugin breaking new versions of s9y/PHP8 or being completely insecure.

Not your fault! :)
