Fontawesome causing SSL https issues

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

Fontawesome urls are turning up as insecure content on pages i've specified to be SSL.

 

I've seen several articles regarding this issue but the solutions offered don't seem to solve the problem for me.

http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/20593-https-issue/

 

I'm seeing this in the console for the page https://nottinghamcastleopen.com/how-to-apply/application-form/

Initially I had more errors than this relating to insecure content but was able to clear these up by finding them in the css and changing all absolute urls to relative ones. I can't seem to find these 'fontawesome' references though, well, no references to them that seem to have an effect when I change them. They're turing up in the compiled css and i've found a ref to them in the file icons.less in the themes/less folder, I commented it out to see if that was the cause but the errors still show.

 

Any ideas?

PS i'm using the Wordpress HTTPS plugin to assign SSL to a page. 

 

Cheers,

Ollie

Ollie,

 

Fontawesome is such a new technology, that it's likely the browser sees it as a suspect character and insecure.  Framework isn't likely to be updated until there's a major update in WP or there's some security issue.  I knew there are a few things scheduled to be added and I'll mention this.

 

Considering this info, it may be best to make graphics to replace the Fontawesome characters. I know this isn't the best solution, but the images will not present any risk of a security problem.

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hi,  I have just switched the site shockwatch.co.nz over to SSL.  I have one remaining mixed content error to solve, but cannot find this link anywhere when I look at the page source so struggling to figure out how to resolve it.  Can you assist at all?

      I am trying to secure my website and it appears there are many files in the pagelines theme that are hard coded insecure. Can you make these urls secure from http to https? In the meantime how do I do it manually?

      hi
      i wanted to point out at this time, that i am very very very happy with platform 5. (before i used DMS and others) as some ppl talking here some things are not working, i can say the opposite working on my Web:
      1. UberMenu
      is running fine, without shortcodes or "tricks" necessary - it runs out of the box with no problems in a few clicks configured. also further ubermenu plugins 100%
      2. Shift Nav
      As a further extension of UberMenu - also runs fine out of the box with a few clicks. also combine with ubermenu no problem (Ubermenu for normal nav, shift nav for mobile)
      3. https / SSL

      I user commodo instant ssl and everything runs fine (10 minutes installation) - no mixed content errors nothing everything very smooth :-). Google SERPS have been updated to https URLS wihtin 1 day(!)
      4. MaxCDN
      I use MaxCDN for sitespeed as i implemented also video backgrounds. it runs perfect with wp supercache
      5. Nginx
      I also run nginx on my webspace, also with that there a no problems with platform 5. I also use nginx streaming for video files, works perfect.
      For all points there a no functions codes necessary or implement shortcodes - it runs out of the box and makes it easy for everybody, whos a little firm in technical matters. Some guys here in the forum make it really complicated :-)
      I am working with pagelines around 5 years now, and platform 5 / framework 5 is the best tool ever
      BUT i am missing to configure site headlines h1-hx as in DMS possible easy way. It was a great way to make seo sitestructure. now there are lots of empty headlines or headlines or jumped over. in seo this causes errors in sites structure. this should be reworked.
      if you have any questions on pl5 with 1.-5. just ask me here....
      regs,
