When leaving a secure checkout page, how do I revert to a non-secure domain?

When a user goes to check out he is taken to a secure page


However, if the user decides to keep shopping or goes to any other page, he is still using the secure domain. I'm guessing that is because all the URLs to non-secure pages are relative.


In the attached image you can see the security warning that IE displays.



So, is there a way to navigate away from a secure site, without hardcoding the URLs to non-secure domains?

    Hi Markovich04!


    You'll need to ensure the links are relative or referencing absolute https within the template and page.


    For more details please review this article below.

    There's no code/script that is provided. 


    You basically ensure the links are either referencing absolute using https or you can reference links relatively but do not reference http as you'll continue to get the warning prompt. 


    So go into the template/page and locate all the referenced links and update accordingly. 


    When done you can post the link to your shop if wanting us to confirm.


    Kind regards,

    Thanks for the share!


    I'm always learning something new and I hope this can be another possible option for people to use to convert the referenced URLs accordingly.
