    resolved [RESOLVED] "This page contains both secure and nonsecure items" error in IE

    Hello good people—

    I recently added an ssl cert to my site. If I visit an https:// page, I get the following error when using internet explorer:

    “This page contains both secure and nonsecure items.”

    “Do you want to display the nonsecure items?

    I don’t really know what I’m doing or how I might be able to fix it. If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it.

    Great forum by the way.

    The page contains links to files or images that are not in the secure folder.
    They begin with http:// and not https://

    Thanks for the reply. I tried it with in a blank page with no files or images and get the same result. Could it be the links in the footer or along the top?

    that could very well be possible. could you post the source-code of the blank page as internet explorer sees it?
    also, is it possible for you to change the code in the footer/top of the page for the secure part of the site only?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I’m sure it’s possible to change the code in the footer/top of the page for the secure part of the site only, but I really don’t have any idea how to do it.

    In any event, here’s the code. If you could, please let me know if anything jumps out at you.

    Thanks a lot for taking a look.

    Do you know of a resource that might explain how to secure mootool scripts?

    As far as the

    I clearly don’t know what I am doing.

    Copy the mootools scripts to a secure folder.
    No scripts, objects, images or other documents may be included in the main document from outside the secure folder https

    Hi all,

    I wanted to share my solution with all of you. The suggested reasons for the warning can be found on number of websites. I can give you exclusive reasons that no one gave anywhere on the net.

    1) Check if you are using <iframe> tag
    2) If possible then remove
    3) If it is absolutely necessary then check that it should have valid src attribute pointing to secure links (https://www.ringoring.com/b.html etc).

    If you have iframe and you do not provide the src then I.E will give the warning. again if the src is there but you did not mention https:// then it will also complain. so the solution is to put absolute path to src property of the <iframe>

    To achieve some ajax type results i needed to use Iframes, and I have encountered the same problem and step by step I get to this point. Yes the other stuff you guys provided will also do if you have normal http:// mentioned in a https:// link

    I hope this will be great help for someone!!!
