I know this is going to be hard for me to explain, so please ask if there's other info that will help clarify.

We have a tool here: that you enter a url of any site and it scans through some things to return seo recommendations. Where it's now having a problem is it automatically is checking http:// rather than checking what you enter so that you can check an http:// site or an https:// site. The tool fails if it doesn't get a 200 response. So obviously it's seeing 301 because it's automatically looking at the site as http:// first. The tool was built a really long time ago so I think it just wasn't fully thought out for https sites since there weren't really a ton of ssl sites yet. We can't even remember the programmer we hired to get things going on it to be able to reach out to them for advice.

The tool was built using smarty, so I "think" where code needs edited is in the two files attached.

Any help on this would be great.
