Getting GTranslate to Work with WordPress and HTTPS

I installed GTranslate on my blog (the one you’re reading!) not long ago and noticed a strange problem I was having with settings not being saved and the plug-in not showing up as a widget on the home page when it was activated.
If you have the same problem, you will notice the “Configure it from WP-Admin -> Settings -> GTranslate to see it in action” showing up in your widget bar.
