  // test if box should display
  $show_editable_sidebox = true;
  // bof: do not show on secure pages
  if ($request_type == 'SSL') {
    $show_editable_sidebox = false;
  // eof: do not show on secure pages
  $define_sidebox = zen_get_file_directory(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $_SESSION['language'] . '/html_includes/', DEFINE_EDITABLE_SIDEBOX_NAME, 'false');
