a problem that I faced when I migrated my website from HTTP to HTTPs, is losing all my old likes on my posts, which left the website looking a bit dull and with no interactions at all. a lot of people contacted me about this issue, and I’ve always had no fix for it, you just have to wait to get new likes.

 

But today I found a solution for this issue, not the best of solutions, but it does solve the issue, and I published an update to my plugin “PressGraph Facebook Like” with a new feature named “HTTPs  Migration Mode”.

After installing the latest version of the plugin, head to “Dashboard -> PressGraph -> Enable HTTPs Migration Mode” and check the box, save the settings, and all your old likes should be back just like that!

 

There’s a con to such a solution, it will still place the likes on the “old non-https URL” for some people that won’t be a problem, but you should know what’s happening in the background.

 

Enjoy your old likes!

But in my busy mind, I always thought that “fish” is the best pet to keep, and the easiest to take care of. “totally oblivious of what will come in the future”.

Mine came with JB 4.3 installed and sense 5.5, and of course it was the Asian Unlocked version from Tiwan, since it’s the only one available in Egypt. I loved the sense UI the blinkfeed and everything, but i was waiting impatiently to update to KitKat, and HTC were very slow to publish the update, i waited until the end of Jan to the mid-feb, and still got not update.
