HTML in eBay Descriptions - SSL / HTTPS?

There is currently a lot of confusion and exasperation for eBay sellers who like to include detailed descriptions with embedded images in their auctions.  eBay now requires SSL certificates for all such external links / code.  And has introduced a super annoying "See full item Description button that hides your content unless the user makes the further step of clicking through.  

 

So, I went ahead and purchased the SSL certificate and finally got the .htaccess file set up to route browsers to my HTTPS secure address.   Annoyingly, this doesn't solve the description button issue.  Here for example is an example I just posted:

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/-/232625194747

 

. . . and when you click it your browser, you're taken to a separate tab with an unfamiliar domain name:

 

http://vi.vipr.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemDescV4&item=232625194747

 

What the heck? Are there any other GoDaddy users wrestling with this problem.  It's a real drag after 20 years listing on ebay to be grappling with something this basic.

Actually. . . duh!  I just forgot to replace all the "HTTP" in my dexcriotion code to "HTTPS" which was the whole point. 

 

Nevermind!  Maybe this will be a help for someone else.
