I wonder, does JFBConnect have some internal setting or procedure how to retain FaceBook like and share count when SSL is activated?
At the moment when SSL is activated, count on all articles are lost because FB uses article URL and it changes from http into https
Latest Joomla, latest JFBC
All social networks use the exact URL to track share/like counts. This includes the http/https scheme. When your URLs changed from http:// to https://, that changed the URL, which is why your counts reset to 0. The old counts are still intact on the http:// URLs. What you can do is set the "Force Scheme" setting in the JFBConnect -> Configuration area to "http://". That will make all sharing features use the http:// URL. Your site should still redirect the user to https:// though and you'll keep the original sharing counts from before the switch.
