Making the change to HTTPS://
« on: January 10, 2019, 03:26:42 PM »
I have been working on switching everything to where it works properly as a secure site but not sure I understand all I know about the requirements needed :?

I have changed all the addresses on my index page to https but I have some images and CSS that will still show as mixed content and in turn the green lock will not show on the browser.

I'm not sure how to go about making the images and CSS serve as encrypted. I'm open to any suggestions and tutorials!

Thanks,
A slightly confused WT #-o

Wayne,

There's a couple of easy ways to find the "culprits". First, just do a 'Show Source' when viewing your page, then search for all occurrences of "http://www.smyth". This will show you the lines on your page you need to change. Another way to find the "culprits" is to use the Developer Tools in your browser. For example, in Firefox, go to your page, then on the Firefox Menu, select Tools -> Web Developer -> Web Console. Then refresh your page. You'll see messages for each of links where mixed content is found.
