Hi John Reynolds,
We have just tested the custom module with SiteTabStrip and SitePanelBar, and we had no problems at all. Can you confirm that you have followed all the steps, and the custom module is loaded?
Maybe you are talking about the generated link of each item of these controls- they are all http://
, but when navigating, the CustomModule checks if the desired page requires SSL or not, and switches to http:// or https:// on the fly.
If you like, we can take a look at your project and see what is going wrong. If you decide to send us your project, you could open new support ticket, put your project and database in a zip file and attach it.
