    Oh i see. It's not working becuase they are not on your server. you need to upload the images to your server.

    you have a link of https://www.biedlers-belts.com/wp-co...e/images/2.jpg for the image link on both sections.

    https://www.biedlers-belts.com/wp-co...e/images/2.jpg

    OK, I think I am done trying to help you as I find myself repeating the same information. The image does not exist on your server in the correct location. If it did the link to the image would work and not present a 404 not found error instead.

    Good luck to you.

    I honestly think were talking about 2 different things, I am not talking about the image URL im talking about the link sending the user to http://www.biedlers.com but instead the website recreates the link as https://

    ok, I'm sorry. Where are you clicking on the page to try to go to http://www.biedlers.com/

    ok so the image in the sidebar on the right? It appears in the source code to be written as https. Is something in your wordpress control panel literally not allowing you to make it an http:// link?
