A sysadmin-y friend of mine has helped me use Lets Encrypt to get my https mojo working on my virtual server.

One problem is that a page loaded on https referencing external scripts over http break.

One flexible fix for that is, with most of these URLs, the protocol can be left out, so instead of changing http:// to https:// I sometimes change it to // -- what we used to call wak-wak a few jobs alone. In effect your saying "load this with whatever protocol this is loaded". I guess it will break if the underlying site hasn't gotten around to offering https though...
