Easy Https and SSL

Are you tired of Mixed Content errors in Joomla?

Solve the "mixed content" errors in your browser, stop getting a broken lock in your site.

Mixed Content, or Loading mixed (insecure) display content "http://. .."

are two very common errors, due to resources in the page requested through the insecure http:// protocol. These can be images, style sheets, javascript files, and more.

Any occurrences of http:// in your resources will be automatically replaced with https.

Test Joomla settings reads the Joomla! configuration and shows a warning if SSL is not enabled there. This may however be an  appropriate configuration if your site is running behind a proxy, and the encryption is performed by the proxy. This is also a very common scenario, as the site perceives itself as being http:// so it will tend to generate http:// links.
