    Greetings. I have a call sign look up from my vk3sq qrz page that links to club log. For a number days now the frame and look-up link has gone and is no where to be seen on the page. When I look into the page in the edit mode the frame is there but not on the qrz page it self.

    Can any one advise of the problem and how to fix.

    If the code is still there and it used to work then I suspect the QRZ web dudes took iot upon themselves to block the code. They have done this to me at times.

    Geoff,

    QRZ.com allows (it shouldn't) to access two versions of each and every page on it's web site, an http version and an https version:

    - https://www.qrz.com/db/vk3sq

    - http://www.qrz.com/db/vk3sq

    I suspect the above http version of your bio page works as you would expect it, but the https doesn't.

    Hello Geoff VK3SQ,

    I think, as Marvin says, they are now making some changes on the website such as http to https etc.
    I have already asked HQ staff to come to this forum and explain what is going on our QRZ pages, anyway.

    If you need, you can send a support ticket at; https://forums.qrz.com/sc

    Thank you,

    Hi. Yes it appears what Marvin is saying is right. The HTTP version works as it should but the HTTPS does not. Thanks Marvin for pointing this out and putting the link to my site. Now next phase... resolve it.

    Hat's off to Marvin VE3VEE, who is correct.

    We are in the process of making nearly all of QRZ available via the secure web protocol, HTTPS

    We would like to convert to 100% HTTPS however there are a lot of items that people have placed on Bios that fail for various reasons.

    Most web pages contain a lot of individual items that are loaded from various sources as the page is being rendered in your browser. One rule that nearly all browsers enforce is that when a page is loaded by HTTPS that objects from other sites that appear on the page must also be HTTPS. Most browsers will display images from non-https sources but none will load scripts or IFRAMES from non-https sources. This rule exists for security and safety.

    When your browser loads a page via HTTPS that contains images that are not HTTPS, you will sometimes be notified that the page has mixed content. The action varies depending on the browser used.

    WHAT TO DO?

    Clublog has a secure page that makes it easy to use their pages over HTTPS. We are going to go through our user pages and attempt to fix this for you, where we are able.

    Other popular assets, like FlagCounter, want money to use their HTTPS version because of the "tremendous load" of HTTPS.

    Note: here at QRZ, we are absorbing the cost because we believe that its the right thing to do for the community.

    So, the rule is, always use HTTPS when embedding outside images and widgets into your QRZ page.

    CAN'T GET HTTPS TO WORK? Use http. Your QRZ page is still viewable using HTTP, i.e. http://www.qrz.com/db/ve3vee
