I have a page where in there are http and https links and when ever i click on any link i get the following msg

This page contains both secure and nonsecure items.
Do you want to display the nonsecure items?

How do I supress this message from displaying on the browser??

THx in advance

Unless I am mistaken (Which is certainly a possibility!), I don't believe you can suppress this message from the server side, as it is a setting on the browser client itself.

This is just a guess at a possible solution, as I did not have time to test it, but have you tried making all of the links on your page http links, and using a controller to redirect the client to https links as needed.

Yup, it is up to the user to set up his browser to not display that message.
I agree. Here's the link:
