I'm using {{store url=""}} to build the URL for a CMS block. The block is later loaded within the HEAD tag to include a rel="stylesheet" link pointing to a CSS file.

My problem is that the store directive used in this context is giving the unsecure address (http instead of https).

How do I get the rel="stylesheet" link to point to the proper URL (in this case, the secure version)?

You can pass parameter : _secure=1 And for force secure url _force_secure=1

See example :

<a href="{{store direct_url="" _secure=1}}">Link title</a>

And for Force Secure Url :

<a href="{{store direct_url="" _force_secure=1}}">Link title</a>

Hope this help.

You should also be able to use

<a href="{{config path='web/secure/base_url'}}">Link title</a>

Might have to add web/secure/base_url to allowed variables at System > Permissions > Variables first.
