    I had a problem with the script and style managers. My web site uses a separate box to handle SSL, so when requests get to my servers, they are always http. So the managers use http to access the CDN, However, if the requested page is actually secure, this cause mixed content warnings and failed pages.
    However, this is not ideal. I would rather not have to hard-code your cdn urls in my app. It would be nice to have a property so I could tell the managers that they need to access the secure urls, even when the web server is handling an insecure request.

    I resolved this by setting the BaseUrl property to the secure address

        CdnSettings-BaseUrl="https://d35islomi5rx1v.cloudfront.net"

    However, this is not ideal. I would rather not have to hard-code your cdn urls in my app. It would be nice to have a property so I could tell the managers that they need to access the secure urls, even when the web server is handling an insecure request.

    I just had this issue too. We use an F5 load balancer to handle the SSL so when the websites get the request, it is no longer SSL. Our code can tell it was an SSL request by looking at an HTTP header set by the F5.

    It would be nice to use this flag to tell the Telerik Script/StyleSheet Regestrars to use the SSL domains. We are using MVC extensions.

    Thanks,
