Why is my secure site not showing the padlock in the browser?

The main reason for this is the use of a http:// link to a graphic or script inside the site rather than a virtual reference to the file which prevents the padlock from appearing. 

Make sure all links to any page you wish to be secure do not contain any absolute http:// links to files (ie if in doubt use the full URL with https://)
