How to fix Mixed Content issues

  Domains & SSL

This step-by-step guide explains how to fix mixed content issues on your website.

What is “mixed content” anyway?

In short: your website contains HTTP URLs while trying to connect through HTTPS (e.g. Google fonts, CSS or images), which results in so-called “mixed content”. In some cases this is due to images being served through HTTP through a WordPress Page Builder, but the solution for this issue is uniform; Find the URLs in your website that use HTTP and change these to HTTPS.
