Windows Explorer Security Warning

Everything looks great with my site except for the security warning that pops up when using windows explorer. I saw some other posts about this but am still unclear how to resolve the issue. Any help would be appreciated.

    Cool site!

    It looks like it has something to do with the caching of the objects from your site which are from your old dev IP address. Try updating it with the real web address and see if that helps. And pay special attention to the background on the header. It seems that it doesn't like that for some reason. Because when I click the "Show All Content" button it shows the header without blue background.

    yeah, basically any content in your template needs to come from https:// and not from http://. This includes all images and files. This doesn't mean you need to have your own secure stylesheet, FoxyCart can handle the secure caching for you when you cache the template in the administration. As it stands, you've got a few css files that are being served over non-secured http://.

    Also worth noting, you've got a whole heap of javascript on your checkout template that would probably be better off removing from the template. You've got quite a few javascript errors on the checkout that all seems to relate to the additional javascript you've got - specifically including jquery yourself as FoxyCart includes it automatically for you. So there's two things I'd suggest for your checkout for this side of things, firstly, remove any javascript you don't need on the checkout, especially the jQuery that's being included, and second, reorder your script includes to put all CSS styles above your javascript includes. This just makes sure the automatic jQuery inclusion is above any of your own javascript files.

    Let us know if any of that is confusing.
  • Hi sparkeweb and fc_adam... Thank you for your help with my situation. I tried updating with the real web address and taking out custom css to change the header background back to the standard color used in the template. Neither seemed to fix the problem with the windows security error.

    Adam, everything you suggested is over my head :( If you have a dumbed down version or way of explaining this it would be much appreciated! Maybe I could give you access to my wordpress admin?

    Would a SSL cert help?

    So I opened this up in Firefox/Firebug and there are a few problems still. It's still trying to open up all your files and it's trying to load in the google fonts app which comes from a non-secure location.

    I think you'd be better served to just load in a simple logo at the top of the page or a simple logo and color bar instead of trying to load in all the overhead of your existing site. It's a good practice anyway to take away navigation once someone is in the checkout funnel because you don't want them to get distracted and leave.

    So I'd do a customized page design that is super-simple and stripped down and re-cache that. Take out all the Google fonts and your custom css and stuff and you'll be a lot closer.

    or.... even better, just go back to the default template and then throw in a little bit of custom css at the top. That would be a more reliable way of getting just what you want and not breaking any of the current functionality.

    Nobody's really mentioned the "how" to get your stuff over https.

  • Hey Guys,

    I am having the same issue, on IE 9.0 & 10.0 the customer is shown a security warning like the one attached. Also, I noticed that my logo does not show on either version off IE, so my guess is that is where the problem lies.

    Here is what my code looks like for the logo:

    <div class="wrapper1">
    <div id="logo"><a href=""><img src=""/></div>;

    I have tried several variations including the cache.php? But it does not display the logo at all if I do that. Any ideas? maybe its not the image at all:

  • I changed the code to this and now my logo is showing on 9.0 and 10.0 IE:

    <div class="wrapper1">
    <div id="logo"><a href=""><img src=""/></div>;

    But I am still getting a security warning on Android browsers. I am not sure how to include the images on here. Any ideas help.

  • fc_adamfc_adam FoxyCart Team

    I'm not seeing any security warnings being thrown for your checkout - but I wonder if this is related to the favicon for your page, we've heard reports of a specific browser causing issues there, but I don't recall which browser.

    Perhaps try putting the cache URL infront of your favicon URL to see if that fixes the insecure warnings on Android based browsers.
  • Looks like this was a secure link in my css that was calling for a https link that needed to be http then cached https. Thanks for the Help Adam!
