Hey Sharon,

Providing you have checked your website at whynopadlock.com and there are no issues noted, I would leave well enough alone. I say that because your SSL certificate plugin SHOULD be looking after such issues automatically.

Having said that... it won't hurt your website if you DO change it to HTTPS as that is the REAL address now.

I have changed URLs like yours shown here (mainly in comments) when the whynopadlock test results came back with problems. However, that was before I discovered there is a more thorough plugin that I shared here: Hope you find this helpful.

Thanks, Trish!

The SSL is fine and I have the green padlock. I was just curious about changing what I'd entered into the box (outline in red, in the screenshot I added).

I added an "s" after the "p", saved the change, then signed up for a Gravatar account. Everything went smoothly - no problems at all. :)

Have you got any publications on your site yet?

Hi, Gordon.

Yes, I have a few. Why do you ask?

You can test your site to see if google is returning http or https. PM me your url and I will check for you just in case the SSL needs resetting

That's so kind of you. Thank you very much for offering! I apologize that I wasn't clear about what I'm asking. I edited the post, to add a screenshot. :)

No problem just shout if you need any help

I still need to know whether to change that http to https or just leave it be. :)

Your site should be https, but if there is an item that is not secure somewhere within your site it will return an unsecured. This is why you should type your url into google and see how it it, the reason I thought of doing for you is that your cache may show you a different result

Your site should be showing https, go to websites>>details and scroll down to SSL turn it off showing red>>then turn it back on showing green then go back and check your user again

My blog's url IS showing https. (You can see it in the screenshot).

I've tested it in incognito, on my android phone and on an iPhone not tied to me in any way. https on all of them.

There's no problem with my blog's security. That's not what I'm asking about.

See the red rectangle in the screenshot I added to my question? That's the URL I typed in when I created my blog - before WA added SiteSSL. That's what I'm asking about.

Since I'm finally making a Gravatar account, I'm thinking I should edit that to https, to prevent a possible problem with verification. What do you think?

Try editing it and see if it holds, it's been such a long time since I did my user but I thought it automatically took it from your site url, I may be wrong there so try to edit it

If no one comes along and tells me editing that line would cause a problem, I'll do that.

Thanks for all your input, Gordon!
