How To Fix This:
- Goto https://www.whynopadlock.com
- Enter in your site and click check (you may need to wait a minute or so depending on the size of your site)
- Review the insecure items next to the red X
- For us, we had insecure Google Fonts loading in the style.css file
- We cued up our favorite FTP program (Coda for Mac) and editeded the files to have https instead of http
- We then went through the customizer in WordPress and corrected the hard-coded links and images within widgets
- After saving and re checking we realized that we needed to clear our cache and dump the CDN in order for the site to show as fixed
- After waiting a little but for everything to clear (about 5 minutes)
- We check the site again and we were good to go.
