Security warnings on checkout page


#1

I had a customer contact me and sent me this screenshot of a warning which she says “No it is cleary written (in french) that it is secure however some parts of the page are not and pirates can get and change information.” I don’t speak a word of french so I have no idea what it really says, but when I view our checkout pages I do see security warnings. What is causing these and how do I get rid of them?

Jim,

It’s likely complaining about having mixed content on a secure page i.e. some content that isn’t encrypted which is often caused by including images or other content that’s not being sourced via a https link.

These appear to be the offending images on your site although there could also be other content as well. Either way you’ll still want ot fix these first…

http://baublesandbeads.com/themes/images/shoppingcart.gif

If these are hard coded you’ll likely need to remove the http://baublesandbeads.com/ from the front of the path so that it’s relative to whichever server you are on - secure or non-secure…

The above then will be referenced like so on the checkout page:

https://secure1.nitrosell.com/baublesandbeads.com/themes/images/shoppingcart.gif

and like so on standard pages:

http://baublesandbeads.com/themes/images/shoppingcart.gif

Hope it helps.

Hi Andy,
I found and fixed the shopping cart.gif.
Where exactly would I find the other two? I’ve been hunting around but haven’t had any luck locating the other items you listed.

They can both be found in your stylesheet called stylesheetsandbox.css.
