    Good day to you all,

    I’m having a problem I’m trying to find a solution for.
    I’ve set up my site 3 or 4 days ago and one of the first things I did is to activate my SSL protocol to give my site a padlock and secure connection. I did check on my provider page and it’s on, I also used the WP Force SSL plugin to make sure.

    However it works on Desktop view and seemingly Tablet (I have no option to check on that since I don’t own one), but on mobile it does not. The padlock pops up a split second and then it’s back to a triangle/insecure connection. The link URLs in the WordPress admin menu are set to https://

    Since over 50% of all internet traffic is on mobile, this is a huge issue for me.

    Googling didn’t find me a solution, mayhaps I searched with the wrong terms, I don’t know. I’d be delighted if one of you could help me out here. Don’t worry about the age verification at the main page, there’s no mature content on it right now (And even if, you had to read a book plugin for that, heh.)

    If that helps, I have the following plugins active:
    AddToAny Share Buttons, Agy, Akismet Anti-Spam, BB-press (Active but not used), BookPress Premium, Contact Form 7, Elementor + Elementor Pro, Essential Addons for Elementor, Force Regenerate Thumbnails, iThemes Security, Media Library Folders for WordPress, PublishPress Capabilities, Rank Math SEO (Even though I’m too dumb to set it up or use…), SG Optimizer, Shield, WP Content Copy Protection & No Right Click, WP Force SSL and lastly WP Last Modified Info.

    I’m not very good at anything computer related and I’m surprised that I’ve come that far with my website yet, so any help is appreciated, I’m at my wits end here :/

    Well, not quite. See the screenshot below (this is from Google Chrome DESKTOP).

    You can use the website https://www.whynopadlock.com/ to find out… well, why no padlock 😀

    Waaah, how’s that possible? It shows a padlock on Desktop for me O.o
    I tested the site with the link you showed and I have green check marks everywhere. The only thing that displayed on the bottom – and I don’t understand why – is a soft error with the text:

    An image with an insecure url of “http://spirits-utopia.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/dreams-2904682_1280.jpg” was loaded on line: 1104 of https://spirits-utopia.com/.
    This URL will need to be updated to use a secure URL for your padlock to return.

    Is it because it doesn’t say https? Then where do I change it? Hopefully that will resolve issue x.x

    Seems like I can’t edit my post, heh. So I found out Elementor has a tool for URL replacement and I did replace the url that caused issues with an https one, whatsoever I can’t really tell if it worked or no. The whynopadlock site doesn’t show any errors anymore.

    Edit: I downloaded another SSL tool that had a free mixed content scanner and I replaced the one link that showed up with a https version, now the padlock shows on my phone instead of popping up a split second and then vanishing into a triangle again. Can someone please test it and get back to me?

    You should be good now. I’ve tested on different devices and different browsers, and also scanned the page with multiple tools… and I don’t see mixed content or “insecure” warning anywhere again (ie I see padlock evereywhere).
