Google map action not showing on https

Hi The Google map action needs a little update for websites that are on https - can you change the reference in the action to https ?

A lot of sites are changing over to https - this would save me a huge headache!

This stems from the announcement that Google is weighing in favour of sites hosted on https - however this alone is not enough fo persuade you to get a SSL certificate. There are qualifiers.

“Google says this gives websites a small ranking benefit, only counting as a “very lightweight signal” within the overall ranking algorithm. In fact, Google said this carries “less weight than other signals such as high-quality content.””

So really, unless the rest of your site is sorted re high quality content etc. you are wasting your time and your clients money.

I tend to agree. Though everyone of course understandably wants to stay on
the competitive edge… except when it comes to content. For some reason,
we’re by-and-large still thinking and using low-level sloganizing and
visual inference as if it were still meaningful.

Well in this competitive environment everything counts.

Thanks Walter I’m adding now - cheers!

While I agree about the content aspect here’s a point-n-click SSL option:

As I posted the other day if you get on the (free) Cloudflare service you get their (albeit less secure) Flexible SSL which might be perfectly fine for people with basic needs. Of course, depending on the level of security required you might need a Full SSL cert instead which is more cost and complexity.

But the point is you can still get a flavor of SSL for free with nothing more than clicking a slider. No extra $ or hassle.

I tried that - some scripts don’t work with that - so I had to cancel

All browsers on a PC will not show the map even with Walters action

This page contains both secure and nonsecure items.

Do you wish to display the nonsecure items.

But that is on the index page as well!

And of course if I say yes - no problem.

So it is not just your Google Map. You will have to look deeper.

You are going to have to look at your font sources, statcounter, Facebook, etc. etc. - all insecure.

All I care about is the map showing? Is this doable or not? No problem if not I’ll just replace with an image for now

I’m afraid that this Action isn’t catching the scripts that the Google Maps Action is adding to the page. I can’t see why that could be, but it is true. I haven’t looked inside that Action, but I suspect that it may be adding the scripts as text, not as tags. As such, the only way my Action could work would be if it converted the entire page to a string and did a find-and-replace in that. That makes it a “terminal” Action, in that no others could run after it. You can do this on this page by using the Source Code Snooper Action on the page (which will mean that no other changes are possible to the design without going through this process again). Publish the page, then search through the source (using the Action interface) for all the references to the Google CDN, and replace http with https.

If all you need to do is change the path then the easiest thing to do would be to open up the Google Maps Action in the application bundle and change the path in the Action.

You’ll need to do a right click>Show Package Contents on Freeway, and then the same thing on Contents>SharedSupport>Actions> FAST>Google Suite.fwactionb
