Really Simple SSL

Compatibility fix for Social Warfare share counts recovery

*  EDIT *

This fix is not needed anymore, as Warfare Plugins has integrated this fix in their plugin. 

If you are using the Social Warfare share counts recovery plugin to recover the social shares and likes for Facebook, Twitter, etc, you might run into the problem that there is a slight incompatibility between the plugins. As Really Simple SSL fixes all http links, it also fixes a link that the Warfare plugin needs in order to stay http.

There is a solution for this. Really Simple SSL uses a filter that can be used to change a specific URL back to http. This is how it would look like for the Social Warfare share counts recovery plugin. Or download it for free as small plugin

function rsssl_fix_warfare_compat_issue($html) { 
    //replace the https back to http 
    $html = str_replace(
         "swp_post_recovery_url = 'https://",
         "swp_post_recovery_url = 'http://", 
         $html); 
    return $html; 
} 

add_filter("rsssl_fixer_output","rsssl_fix_warfare_compat_issue");
You can paste this code into your functions.php. If you do this, the plugin should be able to recover the Facebook likes.
