A Disqus Dilemma

That would be the comments section. I changed a Blogger setting yesterday to redirect all visitors to the HTTPS version of the blog address.  It is supposed to be safer.

That change messed up the Disqus comments.  They disappeared, probably because the Disqus widget for Blogger uses HTTP and this creates mixed contents errors.   I tested the blog for those and Disqus was found guilty as charged.

The obvious solution seems to be here, but it's for the universal code, not for the Blogger plugin.  In any case, I don't see how I could get inside the plugin to mess with it.

 So I canceled the redirecting, but that can't be a long-term solution.  Any advice?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Assuming the comments work.
