The Garden (1663) comic doesn't work on HTTPS
Posted: Mon Apr 04, 2016 10:52 am UTC
The Garden comic includes a script over unencrypted HTTP (http://linden0.xkcd.com/linden.js). Browsers block this script when browsing XKCD over encrypted HTTPS, and thus, the comic isn't shown. This is a problem if, for example, you've bookmarked the HTTPS version of XKCD of if you're using the Electronic Frontier Foundation HTTPS Everywhere browser extension, which doesn't allow connecting to XKCD over HTTP. It could be fixed by adding a SSL certificate to linden0.xkcd.com and either always serving the script over HTTPS or using a protocol relative link on the comic page:
Code: Select all
<script src="://linden0.xkcd.com/linden.js" ...
