    Connection not secure: Parts of this page are not secure (such as images)

    I haven't installed SSL into my wp site and after a recent migration from HTTP to HTTPS my site: https://shoutfile.com site is showing error "Connection not secure: Parts of this page are not secure (such as images)". What if I don't want to go with the SSL (for now). Can it be removed? Can I find that one specific image that is the problem here on my site?

     

    Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance 🙂

     

    How to resolve unsecured content warnings on secure volusion store pages With SSL?

    You want to go with SSL.  That is standard and customary and users can get warnings that your site is not secure which is not good.  There is no good reason to *not* have SSL in 2020. 

     

    With that said, that warning means an image is being called via http vs. https.  Usually looking at the code you should be able to see which image(s) is the culprit.  Then all you have to do is change it to https and you are good.

     

    Once you login to your WordPress dashboard, view your site.  Any page with mixed/insecure content will show a broken lock icon in the browser bar.  Just go to that page in the editor and look for any http image URLs and change them to https.

     

    WordPress has a plugin to help you with this: SSL Insecure Content Fixer.

     

    I have not used Volusion but if you don't have access to the code, they'll have to pitch in and help you with that.

     

    HTH! 😉

    To add onto what @Muse said, 1) You have some http:// references in your custom CSS 

    2) I also recommend the Really Simple SSL plugin which dynamically updates http to https where possible
