Link to switch to http/https version of current page
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

It would be nice if there was an easy way to go from http to the same page on the secure site, and the other way around. E.g. a footer link like the one we have for going to the page on the mobile site.

That's trivial to add. I had never seen that mobile link, btw.

That would completely ruin caching, unless implemented as a gadget.

I understand.. I don't know much javascript but this was simple enough to make myself :) https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Gadget-otherProtocol.js

I will still have to wait for the shared gadget repository to be able to use it easily on all wikis.

(Marking as fixed, as I'm happy now :p.)

I'd internatiolaise the http/https as secure/insecure instead of showing the raw protocols in the message.
