    I am moving my web sites to httpS and am using the Really Simple SSL plugin
    I see to still have a fixed content issue that I am trying to resolve – on my site I have a problem that I have narrowed down to the code in the last sidebar widget.

    When I test the individual links in this code, they are displayed as secure. But still on my site displayed as ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


    Hi Jackie,

    I checked your site, and I get the green lock. Did you clear your browser cache?

    Hi Rogier,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I was able to locate and fix the problem after posting in the forum. But since it was not yet approved/published, I couldn’t update it to say that I fixed it.

    H Vera, can you send us the output of the scan? That is helpful so we can see where these images are loaded.

    Hi Rogier,
    sorry, but i dont´t know what you mean with output of the (what?) scan.
    This ist the wrong link: http://https// in the source code. View the source code view-source: line 1016 and 1028.

    Thanks a lot,


    Hi Vera, as pro user you have a new tab with the scan option: you can find it in settings/ssl/scan.

    Best regards,


    An, I see. Because the domain is not a valid domain, it does not get picked up by the scan, so you can’t use the fix button for this.

    In your site you have this URL:


    If you remove the first part, (http:) the URL is valid. But… If I enter this URL:

    I get a not found. So it seems the image is not there anymore. In that case I would just remove it.

    As it is in a class called “logo-default”, I would expect it to be in your theme logo settings. Let me know if this helps!

    I know the problem with the url. But my problem ist, how i can get into the source code to edit it.


    The source code is created based on your theme settings. I can’t say for sure, but based on the html markup of this image, I expect it to be located in your theme settings, where you upload the logo. If you can’t find it, you can send your wp admin login in the support form, so we can take a look.


    Hi there.

    I have a problem with my SSL certificate, The mixed content fixer is activated, but was not detected on the frontpage. The thing is that I can see the green lock on my website on my laptop but when I go through with my smarthphone it pop up an alert message with the text “your connection is not private”

    How can I fix this?

    Thank you.

    success SSL is enabled on your site.

    success An SSL certificate was detected on your site.
