Read the Mixed Content Report

After your file downloads and you open it, you will have an Excel spreadsheet that outlines where an error is and what the error is. The columns in the spreadsheet will depend on the type of report.

Pages

  • PageURL: This is where the error is located, you will go to this page in order to fix the error
  • WidgetType: This identifies what widget the error is located on, this should help identify where on the page the error is located. The most common widget is the Editor Widget
  • HtmlElement: This is the code strip that the mixed content is within. You will have to ensure you are on the HTML view in order to do a CTRL+F to find the reference directly.excel.png

Info Advanced

  • Category: The Info Advanced category that contains mixed content.
  • Item: The specific Info Advanced item that contains mixed content.
  • HtmlElement: This is the code strip that the mixed content is within. You will have to ensure you are on the HTML view in order to do a CTRL+F to find the reference directly.

Resolve a Mixed Content Report Item

If a web page loads on HTTPS, yet one of the images, documents, or links to external references are on HTTP, you will get mixed-content warnings from the browser. To ensure that sites do not have mixed-content, site owners should make sure that all links to their site are relative and that links to external sites reference HTTPS.

Pages

Go to the designated PageURL (the link in Column A).

Locate the element with the insecure reference. The WidgetType (Column B) will help you narrow down the type of widget that contains the reference. The HTMLElement tag (Column C) will help you determine the appropriate element type (image, iframe, etc.).

You can also search for a specific element by opening the Browser Tools with F12. If you select the Elements tab, you can search for the tag with Ctrl-F to find the correct element. The element’s reference will still need to be updated in the appropriate widget.

Once you have determined which widget contains the insecure reference. If the element is in an Editor widget select the HTML (Code) view of an Editor (HTML View in the Legacy Editor) and locate the HtmlElement (Column C) element. You can search for the tag using Ctrl-F.

For links that are on your site, use Relative URLs.

For links to external sites, modify the URL to use “https” rather than “http”. If the item does not display properly with “https” in its reference link, you may have to contact whoever manages the content you are attempting to reference for updated links.

 

Info Advanced

To fix issues in the Info Advanced module, navigate to the flagged item, and toggle the HTML view.

Then, locate the code written in the HtmlElement code or search for HTTP://.
