EVER GET THIS MESSAGE on your secured pages? This Page Contains Both Secure and Insecure Items.
Along with Do you want to display the non-secure items? Yes, No, Cancel.
We have had this problem in the shopping cart, and I’m sure it has cost CBO some customers. So we recently went through page-by-page looking for unsecured images. Found a couple, but still the message wouldn’t go away.
Turned out to be the link to the style sheet. After adding the “s” to the “http”, it’s now working correctly.
A few things to look out for:
- If you are using Google Analytics be sure to use the https version of their code.
- Use the full path to images (and to your css files!) with the https. Don’t use relative paths.
- Watch for images that aren’t actually on your site, but are pulled in with code, often used in some sort of tracking code. For example, Quantcast uses a small pixel gif for tracking purposes.
- Be sure to use absolute paths on your links pointing OUT of the secure pages, or else your users will stay on https pages when it isn’t necessary, which will cause a drag on your server.
