Hello,
I purchased the OpenCube menu software and created a CSS menu. The software generates the code and I then inserted into my web page where I want the menu to appear. After doing this , I keep getting a security warning when I visit any pages in httpS. THIS ONLY Happens when Internet explorer is used.
 I have changed attched the menu code along with the security warning.
I tried changing some parts of the code to point to my own website, but that did not help. (for example I changed the  

background-image:url(file:///C:/Program%20Files/OpenCube/Visual%20CSS%20QuickMenu/chrome/content/qmimages/arrow_10.gif);

to

background-image:url(file://qmimages/arrow_10.gif);

I've worked with OpenCube actually.  How are you calling the script? Can you provide a live URL?  Or at least some sample code of how your calling the script in your page.
Are you calling any secure items (https) from within the scripts/css?

Thank you for a quick response,
The Menu.txt  that I have attached on my first post contains the menu code that I have simply inserted in my web page where I want the menu to appear and the menu appears just fine.

I see that.  Nothing wrong that I can see.  Can you post code of how the menu is being inserted? or a sample URL?

BTW, when I last used the OpenCube menu I thought you were just supposed to insert a couple of JS files in the place you want the menu.  You have everything in one file/page, which I do not believe is correct. The JS functions, CSS and actual page should all be separate.

you will get the error, as the site is about to open.
Just make sure you are using I.E and you are doing https:// and not http.
Thank you very much,

Just another quick question. Why are you calling a secured site when you don't really have to? Is there a specific reason your calling HTTPS?

well eventually when I get to the donation page the link  will call https:. You will definitely get the error on that page. Also, after visiting the payment page, if you click on any other page it will only call https . Not sure what to do so it will call http.

So, if you want go in with http, then go to donate page , You will get the error there. Then from there, navigate back to any other page and you will still get that the warning since now it will only call https.
As I said again, the pages are taking a long time to load to even without https. ( only in I.E)

In IE, it looks like it's the social icons that are throwing the problem. It looks like this JS is also calling a non-secured URL: http://w.sharethis.com/button/buttons.js

Actually it's all browsers, not just IE. I actually found it in FireFox 4.

Well, I ended up going back to the old menu for now and when I reverted back the I forgot to update the url to https for the shar-this button, but I had it on https when the site was on the new menu. I even took that entire JS out last night and I still got the warning.

Could it be the icons that I have at the bottom of the screen. They are just direct link to the facbook and twoiter page. I ended up thinking that it could be the links on those images.  I also have two external http links under the drop-down menus. Would you agree? ??

I may be able to take all those links out from the payment page, but once the visitor goes to the donation page, and decides to any other pages from that point, all the pages are called in https and we will end up having the same issue. Do you know if I can do anything that it would not call https after the visit to the payment page????

One more thing, When in I.E you get the white bar above the menus, but you don't see it in Firefox. It's stays behind the Shar-this icons. Any way to get rid of that. Sorry for mixing in unrelated item, but I though yo comment while you had seen the site. ???

Also, i tested and indeed the the social items at the button of the screen were causing the issue and not the links under the drop-down menu.

Thank you so much for all of your help LZ1,

The overlapping should really be another question.  

>>Could it be the icons that I have at the bottom of the screen?
No. Those are being called securely.  It's the Share icons at the top.  

>> I also have two external http links under the drop-down menus.
That's fine. External links aren't considered "secured content".

>>Also, i tested and indeed the the social items at the button of the screen were causing the issue and not the links under the drop-down menu.
Interesting.  I found that the share links under the drop-downs weren't being called securely. Glad you got that though.

LZ1, You were right and  the Sage  title surly belongs to you.  Maybe I make it up to by with some Ice-cream the next time I am in MI.

You wouldn't believe what I found.

This is happening on the home page only now and its because of the flash slideshow in the middle of the page. I have created a test document without the flash file and it is no longer giving us the error. ( go to home page and try /indextest.htm ( not html)

I found this link on this page on how to correct it, but can't figure it out with respect with my page. what can you make out of it.

http://www.webmasterworld.com/webmaster/3980105.htm

I will post another question for the overlapping issue. ( sorry for a very long post)

Below  is a new link to the question for the overlap. I ended up using absolute links for time being and this will take care of the issue from the payment page. Someone is working on a new website and we should have that up in a month or so. So, this would do the fix for time being.

Thank you  so much for your help.
