JSON Question

WordPress + plugin Really Simple SSL + json returning error

So I have a Wordpress.org site with the plugin Really Simple SSL and I'd like to use

ajax/JSON
to update the database.

The thing is that, with the help of our friend
@BadHorsie
here, I was able to identify that the plugin is appending
<!-- Really Simple SSL mixed content fixer active -->
after the
json_encode()
value.

This is a bookmark system, so there is only 1 button.
When it's clicked it adds a course in the database but if the course is already there, it removes it.

Server side:

if($isFavorito) {
echo json_encode(array("bookmark" => 1));
} else {
echo json_encode(array("bookmark" => 0));
}


Client side:

<script>
function addItemToUsersList(userId, type, itemId) {
jQuery.ajax({
'url': 'xxx',
'type': 'GET',
'dataType': 'json',
'data': {userid: userId, type: type, itemid: itemId},
'success': function(data) {
console.log('success');
},
'beforeSend': function() {
console.log('beforeSending');
},
'error': function(jqXHR, status, error) {
console.log(status);
console.log(error);
console.log(jqXHR.responseText);
}
});
}
</script>


And it logs:

beforeSending
parsererror
SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 14(…)
{"bookmark":0}<!-- Really Simple SSL mixed content fixer active -->


The PHP is working fine, I've tested it without the ajax/json and it adds/removes the thing I want in the MySQL database.

I know it's the plugins that's making this issue because I've deactivated the plugin and the
console.log()
logged
success
;

How may I make this to work properly? The right way or hacky way is fine!

Maybe a way to trim the
{"bookmark":0}<!-- Really Simple SSL mixed content fixer active -->
to
{"bookmark":0}
?
