Mixed Content when using SSL on Perch admin pages

I'm using a SSL cert on Perch admin pages and I'm getting warnings about loading mixed content. It appears to be that Perch is still using http:// for some items. For example, here's an item from the browser console log:

Mixed Content: The page at 'https://sds.dev/admin/addons/apps/perch_blog/edit/?id=103' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure script 'http://sds.dev/admin/core/inc/js_lang'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

I have put this line in my config file already:

define('PERCH_SSL', true);

Perch 3.0.14

What else do I need to do?

That should be fine. Interestingly the error doesn't have the .php file extension. Are you doing something to remove extensions? If so, you need to exclude your Perch folder from that.

That was it, thanks! Had an overly-eager extension removal rewrite.
