Browser Security Lock Icon

Posted on 2006-03-21
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I have a few webpages that are secure, but when I click the lock icon it says that there were some items that were not transmitted securely. What I would like to know is how can I identify what is being transmitted unsecurely?

I've checked images to make sure they are a relative address, and if not, include https. What else can I check for?

    Do you have an example page? The one thing, other than images, that I can think of would be included files. i.e. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), includes (.inc), etc. They all need relative links to them instead of absolute.

    I figured out what problem I was having. I had all the relative links right in my page, but the actual problem was with the .htaccess file.

    I was forcing the cart pages to be secure, and the rest to not be secure for SEO purposes. Well, forcing everything else to go not secure made other things inside the page not secure. So, check your .htaccess file when you know your images and links are all relative.
