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!
