Just got an email to say moderate a comment on an old blog site that I set up a couple of years ago but have had no time for - but when I clicked to go to the comment gmail asked me the question are you sure you want to pursue this link "to an untrusted site"

??

there is https on that site, yep it hasn't had content added to it in an age but thought http was untrusted, what else going on here??

all plugins are up to date, I've had other vvebsites not having regular content and they do just fine...

UPDATE: Jude Banks supplied link to core of the problem - google! gmail is causing this error message for a lot of people from all sorts of backgrounds not just vvebsites and google is not helping them out in terms of support either!

Hi Mary, a lot of things have changed in two years as far as wordpress and PHP. Word press now is 5.3.2 and the PHP you are running should be the 7.3 version. The SSL should be version 3.2.9.

Best wishes,
Michael

Actually I'm not prone to this activity. Apologies MozMary. But, you can bet your bottom dollar I'm going to research this issue.

Just give me a few hours.

I'll let you know what I come up with.

To Your Success,

I searched in Google and this is what I came up with ==>

https://askleo.com/what_does_there_is_a_problem_with_this_websites_security_certificate_mean_and_what_should_i_do/:

after asking this question ==> Why would an out of date website be referred to as 'an untrusted site'?

It could just be that your security certificate is just expired and needs to be renewed.

Hope this helps...

To Your Success,

Hi $haun - love the $ there!

did you notice in VVA SSL our vvebsite details section SSL is on, there's no update?

Are you referring to the PHP update? Cause if you are I've already contacted support and they said if it's requiring to update to WP's theme to 7.3, it's holding strong with the 7.2.10 version and we shouldn't worry about the security or the SSL. They said it won't not keep us from using it's functions so we should be just fine with it for now.

turns out gmail and google do that to a lot of peeps, it's at their end, and they don't solve it either, some folks losing business because of it

It might just need some updates in your websites back office to run smoothly again.

I am newer to using WA's domains and more familiar with managing domains other places. However, let me make sure. of a couple things. I want to confirm it is https not http? Also is it a custom domain you purchased and have renewed paying on all this time? SSL is tied to the domain name not the host although wildcard SSL can cover multiple domains.
