Hi Charlie,

Unfortunately when MapLab was originally written https was not 
considered.  As a result there are a number of places in the code where 
"http" is assumed and hard coded.

A quick fix for this would be to replace all hard coded "http" instances 
with "https".  I did a quick search for "http:" and it appears that 
there are not too many instances of this in the actual code & template 
files (ignoring examples and how-to docs).  This is not the most elegant 
solution, but should serve your purpose.
