My site is https and now my embedded Sporcle quiz won’t work – what gives?!

What to do if the Sporcle quiz you embedded suddenly stops working?

If you or a website you love is HTTPS, and that website embedded a Sporcle quiz before Monday, December 19th, 2016, the embed code you originally grabbed from us likely doesn’t work right now.

Sporcle recently switched over to being entirely HTTPS. And that affected the embed code.

If this is you, or if you plan to change your site to https in the future, here’s 2 options for ensuring your embedded quizzes have no downtime:

  • Option 1. Go to the quiz on Sporcle, click the grey ‘Embed’ button, copy + paste the updated code there.
  • Option 2. Go to the code on your site and change src=”http://www.sporcle.com…” to be src=”https://www.sporcle.com…” (There should be two instances of of this.)

If you’re having trouble, or you’ve done this but the quizzes still aren’t showing up correctly, let us know! Write to us at feedback@sporcle.com or leave a post in our Report a Problem group.
