Always Use HTTPS - images are not showing on WP website

I have activated CloudFlare yesterday, and Flexible SSL (on cloudflare and installed wordpress plugin). There is a problem my website occasionally is not available, showing error " This site can’t provide a secure connection" (twice so far I have noticed). But except that, some images are not showing on website.

I have turned on " Always Use HTTPS" and " Automatic HTTPS Rewrites", and noticed some images are served with https url and some with http. Those served with http (not https) are not showing. I couldn’t find pattern which images got https, as more or less they are all created an uploaded at same time. This error seems random…

Also I found out if i upload new image, that image is served with https and is visible.
As it is wordpress website, I am not sure I can rewrite all media http to https addresses.

If I go to inspect element, and change http to https to image not showed, it appears normally.

Do you know how to fix the problem?
By the way, at this very moment I am writing post, website is not available as “secure connection failed”

Looking forward to hear from you. And thanks in advance!

website url: (you can try http, or https or anything you want…)

That’s a Mixed Content issue:

Hi sdayman!
Thanks for quick reply.

I do have " Automatic HTTPS Rewrites" turned on, but problem is still there. In article you shared there is no explanation to solve it. However, I did some research based on your reply and the article. I am using " SSL Insecure Content Fixer" wp plugin now, and images are back.

For other people with similar problem, just install the plugin. For more info, take a look at this post:

Good find on the plugin. Plugins come and go, and the one I used to suggest doesn’t seem to be available anymore.

Seems like this is the same plugin. In my case, it worked. Hope to stay that way

Sdaynab, do you maybe have a clue why it there frequent secure connection error? It all happened after connecting to CloudFlare. Actually I noticed first time after adding SSL. At one moment website works normally, at another there is secure connection error
