Hi, I have recently installed the free version of SSL and my mixed content filter is still showing a red cross, I am using accesspress storefront. However, when I load the pages in incognito mode it shows all the pages as secure?
My second issue is even with the pages loading the secure tab. When I add certain banners and amazon ads. The secure disappears on all my shop pages, despite the sites being linked to being secured sites themselves?
I am new to this so any help would be most apreciated?

can you give me your site address so I can take a look at what might be happening on your site? In regards to the banners and ads, they likely serve their content over regular http. Http content on a https site will result in mixed content and thus show a warning. This can only be fixed by the provider of the advertisements, they should make the content available over https:// as well.

Thanks for replying. Sorry didn’t realise where it asks for website, it doesn’t show in the message.
The website is http://www.thepresentfinders.com (excuse the extremely slow loading speed, it will be getting optimizerd once it’s finished).
I did check the Web links for the banners and ads. If you look on the shop page, it’s the ads on the left sidebar that seem to be removing the secure symbol?

there are two images loaded over http:// on the shop page.
Mixed Content: The page at ‘https://www.thepresentfinders.com/shop/’ was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image ‘http://www.mb103.com/getimage.asp?a=277106&m=3687&o=11908&i=116188.dat’. This content should also be served over HTTPS.
(index):633 Mixed Content: The page at ‘https://www.thepresentfinders.com/shop/’ was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image ‘http://www.mb01.com/getimage.asp?a=277106&m=4448&o=11036&i=112431.dat’. This content should also be served over HTTPS.
these (advert) images aren’t detected by the mixed content fixer because they end in .dat instead of a more common format like .jpg or .png. The images also aren’t available over SSL which is why the mixed content warning is shown. This can be fixed by the provider of the ads by making them available over SSL.
