    You probably have still some http links hardcoded in js or css files. Here are some steps you can do to find mixed content on your site:

    After conversion, I once deactivated the plugin and recognized that the site url in generel settings was reverted back to http, your suggestion said it is not to deactivate but to delete the plugin by ftp. Then i changed the site URL to be https and it worked, but with mentioned statement in Chrome.
    Do I need to do the conversion again after re-installing it.

    When you remove the plugin, the mixed content fixer won’t be active anymore. The mixed content fixer is a dynamic process: if the plugin is gone it won’t fix the mixed content anymore.

    In that case you’ll need to do the fixing manually.

    Is it enough to re-install the plugin to avoid manual fixing at the moment?

    If the mixed content is not hardcoded in a css or js file, but in the websource, it will automatically be fixed if the plugin is activated.

    Now that I have reinstalled the plugin on that site that is already converted, for mixed content filtering, the huge message in backend is not necessary, how can I get rid of it?

    You could just click “enable ssl” again, which will do nothing effectively as it’s already done, but it will also set the flag to “ssl enabled”.

    Or you can run this code to set the flag to true, by putting it in the functions.php, running the site, then remove it again:

    $options = get_option('rlrsssl_options');
    $options['ssl_enabled'] = true;
    update_option('rlrsssl_options', $options);

    Okay, that helped, thanks a lot. I wasn’t sure if the conversion process would be started again when pressing the button…
