Mixed Content Warnings and HTTPS Changes

I plan on doing a longer post on the process of switching over to HTTPS. As you might guess, it’s not as easy as you think. Until I resolve the remaining issues, you’ll most likely see some mixed content warnings in your browser. That’s because both “secure” and “insecure”content is being served. If the page doesn’t look correct in your browser, you can accept the “insecure” content and it will look fine.  I’ve posted some shots of how different browsers show the error. 

Depending on which browser you use, the error will show differently. In the case of Firefox, you can see an icon to the left of the URL. If you click the icon, a small dialog appears which will allow you to “Disable Protection on this Page“.

Internet Explorer places the notice at the bottom of the page. Like Firefox, you can click “Show all content” and the page will reload.

And not to be left behind, but Chrome also has its own error message.  Again, if you click “Load unsafe script,”, the page will load.

In the meantime, I’ve got more settings and configurations to handle.
