Global Settings - Framework
Use protocol-relative URL
This option is replacing the http:// and https:// in the urls to //, which will make the links relative to your website's protocol, and this way your http images won't be blocked in your https address. But this will only replace our codes, so if you have manually written http:// links into your slides, and you have problems on your https:// website, then use the translate url option, or replace those links manually!

- Inline at head: puts all CSS codes to the HTML head section.
