Support » Fixing WordPress » SSL Certificate HTTPS

  • So I had my server managers install an SSL certificate for our wordpress site after we were hacked several times. The site is not being recognized as secure because the browser things there is some hardcoded http in the html. I cannot find these instances of html code but I am sure the exist. Are all themes designed that way? does anyone have any idea on how to fix that? when my site comes up under https all the fonts are different, Revolution Slider does not work and a few other things happen. Any thoughts? I am not sure where to go from here other than to ditch the SSL

  • Hi cedaly,
    Jason is right the issue is with your links to website for example google fonts, Current images in Revolution slider maybe with “http://….” url not with https:// url that is why web browser is unable to get and access is blocked for the unsecured files.
    To fix this simply hire a developer, if you already have and have experience with wordpress then just dig into the source and find the font urls and update those with the https link.
    It will surely help.
    If you can share website link then i can help you in better way 🙂

    Thank You

    Install the plugin “better search and replace”. Use it to search for “htttp://my.example.com” and replace that with “https://my.example.com”. That should get rid of the mixed content problem.

    Once done, you can delete the plugin.

    Please post a link to your site.

    @strendata great solution.
    but Search and Replace is unable to change source code.
    That they need to update manually 🙂

    robin: That’s why I asked for a link to the site. 🙂 So I can see what happens *after* the search/replace is used.

    @sterndata _ Yes Agree.

    Thanks for the information! I think a few pieces of the http code are part of the PHP files being used. For example, our logo is being displayed via http. I can change the code but I think that also forces everyone to https (which may not be bad considering the volume of attacks our site has received). I’ll get to work on your suggestions – very useful.

    if you have a cert, it makes sense (and is a lot easier) to make the site all-https-all-the-time than to try to support both http and https or have just parts of the site be https.
