Always use relative links for the images and files you display on your site. Using absolute links will display SSL warnings to your customers when they checkout.

Relative vs. Absolute

  • Relative link (good): /storage/filename.ext
  • Absolute link (bad): http://yourdomain.com/storage/filename.ext

File Manager

  • Use the File Manager to upload all your files
  • Use the displayed relative links instead of absolute links everywhere on your site
  • You'll never have another issue with SSL warnings again

Assets on Other Domains

When using assets (images, css, javascript) from another domain you must verify the external domain supports https and should always use a https URL.

  • Wrong: <img src="http://some-other-domain.com/filename.ext" />
  • Correct: <img src="https://some-other-domain.com/filename.ext" />
