    accessing domain mapped sites via https does giva a certificate error. This is a side-effect of protecting the dashboard. Just use http://northernsoultattoo.co.uk/ instaed of the https://northernsoultattoo.co.uk/ version. As its a public site the https adds little to security anyway

    Im thinking it might actually be something else now as i have another wordpress and that is domain mapped and its fine

    Doing the http thing is not working either

    Just to confirm – are you talking about browsing the page or the mobile app? WordPress are investigating issues with the app currently.

    I’m flagging this for staff attention. Please be patient as it could take a while for them to reach this thread. In the mean time it would probably help them if you made a screenshot of the certificate error available.

    Instructions for making a screenshot are at http://en.support.wordpress.com/make-a-screenshot/.

    If you are using a mobile device, please note the post at https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/certificate-errors-in-wordpress-mobile-app?replies=1

    If you are not posting from a mobile device, please make sure you are using and sharing links starting with http:// rather than https:// as tandava108 suggested.

    Please post screenshots to your media library for me, and let me know when that’s done.

    Also, please be very specific about what you’re trying to do when you get errors. Are you trying to publish a post using Publicize and the posts aren’t showing up there, or are you using a link to a post and trying to post that link directly on Facebook and Instagram? In other words, what exactly are you doing that causes the error, and what page are you on (the URL/address) when it happens?

    I’m experiencing this Certificate Warning message on my blog when selecting “Recent Posts” right-side widget. Using theme twenty-ten.

    I access my blog through my laptop (not using mobile device) – I just submitted a new thread on this in the forum section https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/there-is-a-problem-with-this-websites-security-certificate-this-is-popping-up?replies=1

    This is a way to loose viewers. http://www.oilpastelsbymary.com

    Auxclass, not sure what you mean by your post. I’m aware that there is a discrepancy with the https links – I need wordpress to address and correct the problem behind the scene.

    Here is the deal, when I originally do a new post all of these worked just fine. I use “Recent Posts” daily to go back and check if I’ve missed a comment on a post.

    Today if the first time I’ve seen this issue pop up, and now I’m not getting any new views, likes or comments since about two hours ago.

    When I post I never create the link, it’s always done automatically when I create the post. So I don’t go in and type http:/ or https:// when I create a thread, as I said this is done automatically.

    What am I missing here? Not sure when has happened, and why after two years is this Certificate Warning now coming up.

    So I just went into edit a one of the above “Recent Posts” to see the link, and guess what the link is as it’s suppose to be http:// not https://.

    That tells me that something has happened internally with wordpress, not how I’m creating my posts.

    Can someone please assist with the issue. Thanks, Mary

    Thank you they are all working. I am now able to click onto all of the posts on Recent Posts side-bar menu and they all working with no Certificate Warnings.

    Thank you for the fix. Mary
