Hi,
I have SSL on my site.
There is a problem with the SSL certificate because the google fonts the template loads are not using HTTPS.
Can this be fixed?

Hello,

Typically you don't use https for google fonts, a secure connection is not needed to call a font. If you want to modify it you would adjust the calls in vertex/css_and_js.php and in the index.php

Well... it IS an issue, because when I enact SSL, it leaves some non secured elements on page - which are the google fonts links.

Hello,

That's how SSL links work, it looks at all out-sources as being unsecure. Whether you call it with http or with https doesn't make a difference, it's still an out-side source. There's no way around that unless you want to totally disable google fonts.

I understand that, but it seems as if google has a way to do it...
Like the solution here:

I did it in the file you pointed out for me, but it didn't change anything.

Hello,

That site is suggesting to replace the http:// call with just // I've never tried calling a url that way, but you can try it. You have to replace it in both files mentioned above: the template's index.php file ad the css_and_js.php file, those are the only places that google fonts is called.
