Hi There,
On this site here https://www.latinocellar.com/  you will see the whole site is using the secure https

However its causing a problem with a URL.  The BLOG link is a wrapper for a wordpress site https://www.latinocellar.com/blog

On Internet explorer it won't let you view the content, in FF its ok.

Anyway how can I fix this so you can view the blog in the wrapper?  Do I have to change a setting in Wordpress to fix this?

There are about five Joomla add-ons that embed wordpress blogs in the Joojmla site (When I last looked).  Check out Joomla.org and the extensions area as this may be an easy way to get WordPress using the standard Joomla template easily.

In IE you can try copying the shortcut from the link to the wrapper/Blog and pasing into a new screen to see what happens.  Could be this may also give you an idea..

When I copy the link it redirects to the https link so no matter what I cannot get it to be http://www.latinocellar.com/blog

This is because the blog Needs to be in a joomla wrapper.

I have worked the template so the blog fits in the wrapper nicely.

Is there a specific extension you mean me to try?

I found this link here
http://blog.crazybob.org/2005/06/ajax-ie-iframe-bug.html

and it seem to hold the key.

I edited the default.php page in the com_wrapper by changing the src to the direct link rather than the php code and it worked ok
