Avoid mixed content warnings (HTTPS/HTTP)

Web browsers may display "mixed content" warnings in the address bar when an HTTPS (secure) webpage contains images, iframes, or other resources from HTTP (non-secure) source URLs on other websites. This may cause the whole page to be delivered insecurely.

  • Staff should keep an eye out for "mixed content" that causes pages to not display as HTTPS.
  • Staff should update links, images, and embedded content on the site to make it HTTPS where possible.

Images with Clickable Links

An image can be turned into a clickable button by adding a link to the image.

Avoid copying and pasting images from clipboard

Copying an image to the clipboard and then pasting it into a page's Body box can cause severe problems for your website. The action of pasting the image from the clipboard inserts it into the code with a very long string of letters and numbers as its URL source, instead of a real URL.

Chrome and Internet Explorer prevent this action, but Firefox allows it.

Adding Images to Your Pages

Images stored on your computer/file share can be added to your pages using the CKEditor toolbar and Drupal's File Browser.
