Errors: ''Parts of this page are not secure'' and "This page includes other resources which are not secure"

Problem

When accessing a secured web site, a browser may receive the following warning message:

Internet Explorer:  This site contains both secure and nonsecure items.  Do you want to display the nonsecure items? 
Firefox:  Parts of this page are not secure (such as images)
ChromeThis page includes other resources which are not secure. 


     

Cause

This warning message occurs when items on the following web site (frames, images and other objects) are referenced in a non-secure manner (http).  For example the page code might include an image or code that pulls from a non-secure URL.

Solution

 
To resolve this issue make sure that the page code does not pull data directly from a non-secure URL.
 
View the page source html code to check for non-secure items.  This can be done in a web browser by doing a right click and selecting 'view source'. 
 
To identify non-secure elements view the source code of the page and search for the text src="http://
This will then highlight elements on your page being loaded from a non-secure URL.
 
The source code (HTML) needs to be checked for NON SECURE tags. (i.e. <img src="http://www.symantec.com/images/seals/Secure...">)  Ensure the following references are changed to HTTPS or a virtual directory.
 
Note:  The webmaster should always be consulted prior to any adjustments made to a web site.
