I've just installed a SSL certificate on my web site, but when I view it in my browser (Chrome), the browser warns me that it's not totally secure:

Browser warning

What am I doing wrong, and how do I correct it?

Anything with a reference to non-https links will invalidate the site.

This includes all css, images, js etc.

For Google Analytics see - for secure tracking

Thanks - answer credit for the link to the Google Analytics FAQ! – Shaul Behr Apr 20 '12 at 8:15

Because you reference objects that are not fetched over https, or are served via a server with a self-signed or expired certificate. Usually googles analytics.js or similar.

Use firebug or something similar to determine what the objects are.

Aha, so using Google Analytics invalidates your SSL? That could be it... – Shaul Behr Apr 20 '12 at 8:03
Including non ssl objects will cause these warnings, yes. – 3molo Apr 20 '12 at 8:38
