Use unencrypted URL to view games

Blogger informs me that the https settings have changed. It seems that if you visit the blog using the encrypted url (and it might automatically forward you there) you will not be able to see the rendered version of games I post.  With the https version of the url, you'll see the plain sgf, looking something like this:


If you prefer to see the rendered games, you'll need to use the non-encrypted url (http version, as opposed to https), i.e., you should go to  With this url, you should see the games rendered, i.e., the above will look like this:


  1. You'll want to change this line
    script src='' type='text/javascript'...

    to have src='//', without the protocol specified. Then, the browser will substitute http / https as appropriate, depending on which protocol you fetch the page on. HTTP/HTTPS mixed content is a common issue with javascript.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion, Brian! But I tried changing it, and it still doesn't render the games for me when I go to https. It looks like I can't get to over https at all, so presumably that's causing the problem.
