Help - my website page isn't showing the GREEN SECURE message!

If you have SSL Service, and are trying to view a webpage securely via https, for example: https://www.hostingcheck.com/ 
But, you are NOT seeing the GREEN Secure message in the browser - the problem is ONE OF TWO PROBLEMS:

PROBLEM ONE: You are calling IMAGES not securely.
To FIX THIS, go through your website page code and look for image links (img src) that call your images NOT SECURELY... FOR EXAMPLE, lets say you have an image
img src = http://yourdomain.com/images/imageone.gif
that is NOT a secure image link.
You want to CHANGE THIS TO:
img src = images/imageone.gif
that will call your image via a RELATIVE LINK, and when you are browsing SECURELY, it will not create any errors.
PLEASE ask support (via SUPPORT TICKET) if you have any more questions or problems accomplishing this!

PROBLEM TWO: You are calling JAVASCRIPT, or OTHER OUTSIDE SITE asset not securely.
To FIX THIS, go through your website page code and look for links that call JAVASCRIPT or images NOT SECURELY from OTHER WEBSITES... FOR EXAMPLE, lets say you have a JAVASCRIPT from an outside site:
JAVASCRIPT URL = http://yourdomain.com/javascript/script.script
that is NOT a secure script link.
You want to EITHER REMOVE THIS, or CHANGE THIS TO:
JAVASCRIPT URL = https://yourdomain.com/javascript/script.script
that will call the javascript SECURELY, and when you are browsing SECURELY, it will not create any errors.
WARNING, if you are calling ANY ASSET from another website, they MAY NOT HAVE SSL, so you may NOT be able to pull ASSETS from that website!
PLEASE ask support (via SUPPORT TICKET) if you have any more questions or problems accomplishing this!
