Insecure URL - where to change that?


#1

I have an active certificate on the site. I have checked with whynopadlock and there were 4 or 5 soft failures so i activated the HTTPS rewrite. Next check shows ONE soft failure, and the description says:

“An image with an insecure url of “http://mydomain.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/FrontCover1600-2.jpg” was loaded on line: 244 of https://mydomain.com/.
This URL will need to be updated to use a secure URL for your padlock to return.”

How do I change that? I tried starting from scratch and upload a version 2 of the same image, thinking it would solve the issue but it didn’t. I am unfamiliar with that “rewrite” feature. Does it edit the http into https in some files? If so, how can I address this one? I have no idea what file should be edited, how or why it was not edited by the rewrite.

Can you help?

WordPress is a pest with the domain name and protocol. You have an image loaded (either through HTML or ajax) with the wrong protocol in the SRC.
Are you able to share the url with the issue here? If not, you’re welcome to PM me.

I initiated. But for future reference: Click on my name, then in that little popup click [ :email: MESSAGE] on the right.
