Issue with SSL in homepage and wp-admin

Hi all, i have installed ssl certificate on a site in my network and the homepage or admin section isn't protected.

In the frontend only the homepage is not showing the padlock all other pages are working normally with the padlock, i have analysed with ssl tools and it reports this:

"SSL verification issue (Possibly mis-matched URL or bad intermediate cert.). Details:
ERROR: cannot verify's certificate, issued by '/C=GB/ST=Greater Manchester/L=Salford/O=COMODO CA Limited/CN=COMODO RSA Domain Validation Secure Server CA': Unable to locally verify the issuer's authority."

I have check if there is any image or static files using "http" protocol and i cant' find nothing that could block the padlock in the browser.

The site domain in my network is

Thank you

    Hi Pedro,
    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    I can see the same issue on your website on homepage. It displays the green padlock at first but it disappears as soon as page completely loads.

    As you have already discovered that the issue is with bad certificate or the URL does not match. So more or less its a certificate configuration issue. Please contact your host or the authorities you bought SSL from to get assistance.

    To force SSL for admin try adding following code in wp-config.php file before the line that says stop editing.
    define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);

    Take care and have a nice day :slight_smile:
    Cheers, Sajid

    Hi Sajid, i have found the issue, there is 9 items which uses the subdomain of the network instead the original domain name.

    Going to modify the URL and in theory it will fix the issue.

    Thank you very much!

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
