really good, but there is an even simpler way, all you need to do is go to your general settings in the dashboard and change both the WordPress address and the site address from HTTP in the beginning to HTTPS, its a simple as that, and there will be no plugin needed, so your site will still be as fast as it is

I Have Problem... The mixed content fixer is active, but was not detected on the frontpage. Please follow these steps to check if the mixed content fixer is working. Instructions NOT ACTIVE... The certificate is self-signed. Users will receive a warning when accessing this site unless the certificate is manually added as a trusted certificate to their web browser. You can fix this error by buying a trusted SSL certificate

You are my absolute hero Darryl. I have been on the phone 3 f*****g hours combined with 3 GoDaddy reps. About 6 hours following their instructions to get the secure padlock and no joy. If I were gay and you were gay you would be marching down the aisle with me in matrimonial bliss. Really simple SSL is really as stated. Literally watched about 3 minutes of your video and now my site rentmydrive.co shows padlock and secure. If God was a WP developer it is you my main man. Can not thank you enough. If you ever want to rent out your drive or any of the other categories we have you can keep 100% of the income :-)

Hi Darrel, thank you for this video. I always look into your tutorials as I learn a lot from you! My site says https so it means I have SSL certificate, right? But I was hoping to get the green SECURE on my URL as well so I followed this hoping it will work but it didn’t. :( my webhost is tmdhosting as you have suggested and got the lowest package, the 2.95/month deal. Is the force SSL going to work had I picked the 5.95/month package? Thank you!
Darrel Wilson (3 months ago)
nice, good luck mate! if it says https that means the sll is on

If I purchase an SSL that says it does not include the GREEN bar, will this method add the green bar or do I need a specific type of SSL for the green padlock to work? Thanks

I'm not sure if anyone has asked this, but if you go through the activation process and "padlock Secure" appears on the back end of WordPress but not on the front end, what do you do?
Darrel Wilson (5 months ago)
It may be the browser or hosting, clear the cache and than call your hosting company

Hi, Darrel, Thanks for your video show on ssl certificate tutorial. It is a very good show and simple and clear. I followed your steps and got the Really Simple SSL plugin and activated. In my dashboard can see it. But under Detected setup - setting, the message was: NO. SSL detected. and HTTP Strict Transport Security is not enabled. To enable, get Premium. Also I checked details from SSL Shopper.com, the certificate was issued. Could you give a guide for the problem I faced? Thanks!

this tutorial is short of some steps. To get all the website`s pages SSL secure may take more than just a single plugin. I had to edit my .htacces document +2 more plugings and I still have 2 pages unsecure :/

No SSL was detected.
Al Dalesandro (10 months ago)
I purchased from my web host and it's been several days and it isn't working.
Al Dalesandro (9 months ago)
Apparently they claim that Sitelock(which they also sold to me) was conflicting with the SSL. I removed the sitelock, we'll see what happens next.
Darrel Wilson (9 months ago)
contact them and ask them why ?
Remy Sheppard (10 months ago)
Great Video, but bro.. HostGator? You realize Google Cloud + CDN is like $8 a month?
Remy Sheppard (10 months ago)
Darrel Wilson Google cloud services also have 24/7 support
Darrel Wilson (10 months ago)
yeah but you can call hostgator any time of the day which makes up for it

i'm getting this error.plz help me Some things can't be done automatically. Before you migrate, please check for: Http references in your .css and .js files: change any http:// into // Images, stylesheets or scripts from a domain without an ssl certificate: remove them or move to your own server.

I have a question about ssl.  I got the video from Adam and wanted to try to add an ssl to my website.  I was already signed up with cloudflare and wanted to try the ssl.  Everything looked good and I added the plugin Really Simple SSL it looks like it worked but I don't see the green pad lock?  It wants to show on load but then disappears?  I also see it sometimes when I am login to the website?  It is on the https too?  Thanks for any help
Ronnie Savini (11 months ago)
I got it thanks Darrel!
Darrel Wilson (11 months ago)
hmmm, it shouldnt dissappear. you may want to change hosts, i dont know what could be the issue here, it could be many things ><

Does this plugin just override an issue? My SSL was working fine then all of a sudden I noticed that every page had lost the green padlock. If I activated this plugin without an SSL certificate would the padlock still appear?
Darrel Wilson (1 year ago)
it will not. The plugin helps overrides small issues like images or logo problems. If your server has an ssl on it and you use this plugin, the padlock should appear
paul flores (1 year ago)
Hostgater wont let you use Lets Encrypt? so this plugin wont do it if you have hostgater...
Darrel Wilson (1 year ago)
what? thats pretty lame,, you can always try to get a FREE SSL and see what happens
Jonas Gaida (1 year ago)
I do have bought the TMD Hosting Business package which you recommended, however it says that there is no SSL detected after installing the plugin...
Darrel Wilson (1 year ago)
it could be something really small. An image could be casuing it. Just send them the support ticket and they will fix it for you. You got one! trust!
Thevaa Guru (1 year ago)
Hey Darrel good day to you. your video is really helpful and i solved my ssl problem in my WordPress website. hope to see more helpful tips from you in future. Keep up your good work. May God bless you always. :)

Raj Siddappa (1 year ago)
Hi Darrel, I followed your steps and installed above plugin. I can see green padlock in my website but no 'Secure' word. What to do...please help me. Raj.
Darrel Wilson (1 year ago)
make sure you have the SSL installed on your website. If that doesnt work, contact the hosting company and let them know its not working properly
swapnil kurbetti (1 year ago)
Hi Darrel, after installing the really Simple SSL I am getting the following error- " The mixed content fixer is activated, but was not detected on the frontpage. Please follow these steps to check if the mixed content fixer is working." How to rectify this?
palladin (1 month ago)
thank you so much for this advice. I deleted the image causing the problem and reloaded it onto elementor. This made my website have the https padlock.
Master Automation Maven (2 months ago)
I had this same problem and found out it is because some of the images on my site didn't convert from http to https like they should have. I removed all of the images that are still active on my site and reloaded them which fixed the problem for those images. I still have one image that I'm not able to find in my media files so I'm going to contact my hosting provider for help with that one. The site you can go to and check to see what specific problems are keeping your site from being secure is https://www.whynopadlock.com . If you put in your site it will give you a list of all the content on your site that needs to be fixed.
Jimmy de Groot (5 months ago)
I get the same message too.. I looked it up and it is probably because your webhost server isn't comparable with a free SSL certificate. And you have to pay for an certificate in order for the green lock to work.. I'm currently searching for the cheapest out there and how to install it yourself but I'm kinda stuck actually...
