What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 129 Stack Exchange communities.

It'd be nice if the different flair options could be hosted on HTTPS as well as HTTP, so that they could be used in — for example — HTTPS-secured intranet sites.

Oh, god. Flair on an intranet site?! You're taking SO too seriously. –  LeakyCode Dec 2 '09 at 11:13

I can see a status-declined in your immediate future... –  Marc Gravell Dec 2 '09 at 11:32

Haha, quite possibly. It's more of a challenge to my coworkers. –  Jonas Lincoln Dec 2 '09 at 13:48

I have my flair on my internal Sharepoint page. What else do you put there? –  C. Ross Dec 2 '09 at 15:45

Congrats on two and a half years -- a quarter decade! -- without being declined! CC @MarcGravell –  Pops May 25 '12 at 23:06

This is possible now that StackExchange has basic SSL support, just change the protocol to https.

se-flair also supports HTTPS if you use the PNG image version.

You could write a little proxy script a https server that retrieves the flair image (over http)

In php the script would look something like this:

<?php
$image = file_get_contents('http://stackoverflow.com/users/flair/19165.png');
foreach ($http_response_header as $header) {
    header($header);
}
echo $image;
exit();  

Just replace 19165 with your StackOverflow id.
