Drupal theme not parsing after installling SSL for https ?

After installing an SSL certificate, when I visit my site, https://www.mysite.com, the page loads without the theme, as if none of the CSS is working.

In Internet Explorer, a popup at the bottom of the screen shows up, "Only secure content is displayed" with a Show all content button. After I click the button, the page loads fine with theme and all.

What's happening? I know that the pages should work upon first loading. My visitors shouldn't have to go through Show all content option.

Double check the paths to your css files. It seems they might be hard-coded using the http path rather than the relative path which would function as https in this case.

Drupal wouldn't hard code the CSS files would it?

And the CSS does work after I click Show all content.

Another area I should be checking, perhaps?

This is a problem that occurs when you have both https:// and http:// content on a page. Look at your source to find out which content is being served as http:// ... it could be a hard-coded part of the theme, or it could be the result of a module doing something it shouldn't.

Is this site going to be exclusively https? If so, there are other measures you can take to force Drupal to serve only with https:// content. If you are going to have mixed-mode (per-page, per-section) http/https then you just have to find out where it's spitting out the wrong protocol and fix that.

Is this a custom theme or a contrib theme? Do you hard code any images or other content in the theme itself?

I think I speak for many when I say IE is not my friend. :)

Cheers,

Mike
