You may not know why your wordpress site is not fully SSL secured

I am moving all websites to our own private server at Ramcode and working hard to make sure each site is SSL secured using Let’s Encrypt certificates. However, no matter how carefully I changed all image reference source URL from http to httpS, the Firefox browser always displays the warning right in front of https on the browser URL, indicating the page has secured and unsecured contents mixed together. See it for yourself…

After searching for http:// reference in the HTML source file of this site 1459919.net/ebook, I find this one…

<link rel="profile" href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">

After installing a child theme and then removing this line from the header.php file, I refreshed the browser, now the warning is gone and I see the happy green lock icon! See it for yourself…

If you are concerned about removing it, then just add “s” to the URL to make it a secured call:

<link rel="profile" href="https://gmpg.org/xfn/11">

Note that different browsers may give different look for the warning, but Firefox gives the most obvious triangle warning. So if this happens to your site, you’d better fix it!
