Fix a Mixed Content issue within 30 secs | HTTPS Padlock Warning | How to find the issue and fix

When visitors come to your website they will be using web browsers. These web browsers may flag up a warning to the visitor if your website has insecure resources. This is why you need to move from HTTP to HTTPS. HTTPS is secure.

When building a website it’s vital that you have the SSL certificate on each page. Without the SSL certificate, the page will come up as unsafe and some people may not be able to view it. Also, they will more than likely press the back button which will impact your google analytics.

Occasionally when building a website you may come across an issue which is known as a mixed content error. This is when typically and the image is being displayed using HTTP rather than using HTTPS. It’s quite a common issue, especially when you’re building a website and very easy to fix.
