Why’s my secure page not secure?

I’ve  been chatting with HostGator trying to figure out why the one secure page on my client’s WordPress site is giving them that mixed content warning in IE. I just found this excellent free service to check for security issues and pinpoint the reasons for insecure warnings.

Now because of Why No Padlock I know that the common name on the SSL cert is not matching the host name. An easy fix.


  1. Well, in this case it was an issue with the way the SSL certificate had been set up, and it was something my host had to handle for me since they purchased and installed it on my behalf. Not something I could fix myself.
