    All of a sudden all my sites that use Secure Certs are not displaying the SSL icon in the bottom of the screen.

    On one of the slower loading sites I saw it momentarily then it disappeared.

    I restarted apache but this did not help. Mind you this is not just happening with my browser, the customers are bringing this to my attention so they too are seeing it. And we all have seen the icons on the screens with no code changes.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    oh, I do see it in my WHM

    just installed another new cert and see the same issue.

    The icon shows a second then goes away yet when you click on the area where it is. it tells you one is there.

    Strange
    https://www.alignment.biz the icon shows and stays

    but when I click on a link to go into the catalog
    http://www.alignment.biz/catalog/default.php?cPath=2

    the icon disappears.
    when I go have to the home page using the link I get the warning that I am leaving a secure site.

    your images are notcoming from https when you click into the catalog, they are coming from an http source.

    Do not understand?

    The SSL icon disappears on this site.

    he has http://www.pricenettools.com which is on the same server the catalog is set up pretty much the same also. When you click into the catalog and then sign up for a new account the SSL icon stays on the bottom of the screen.

    When you do this on the http://www.alignment.biz it breaks.

    Al,

    I visited both sites and the SSL icon (yellow padlock) didn't disappear. It was there all the time. I guess the problem is your browser or PC. Try a different PC and see if you get the same problem.

    Andy thanks, actually the customer's pc shows the same thing.

    Even when you go into the catalog?

    https://www.alignment.biz/catalog/

    man that is great, been driving me nuts. I even set this IE to defaults thinking it was an issue.

    I've tried it from 3 PC now and get the same thing when I click on Sign In/Join inside of the catalog.

    I think I see the trouble. If I start with HTTPS on the main page and click in the catalog, I get a pop-up message asking whether I want to see both the secure and unsecure items. Answering YES will cause the padlock to disappear, and answering NO will enable to padlock to stay visible.

    However, answering no will cause nearly all graphics to disappear. This is because you are using absolute links to unsecure files with HTTP instead of HTTPS. You can solve this problem by using relative links (no HTTP prefix). This should prevent the pop-up message and keep the padlock visible.

    That was it,
    He had <base href="http://www.alignment.biz/catalog/"> in the header.php of his catalog.

    I removed it and all worked well as advertised.

    Thanks
