"Deceptive site ahead" - Chrome

Betsy Gamrat April 3, 2023

This is a very simple straight HTML site - it uses JavaScript (jQuery) to load page content. Bootstrap for layout.

It includes a lot of external links to news resources, but most are reputable (I have not checked them thoroughly).

If I use https:// it works fine.

Newer Chrome versions automatically display a warning if a site is in http, or in mixed http/https mode.

I checked for http vs https - changed a few, but I am still seeing the warning.

There's one warning in the console.

This is the JavaScript (jQuery) - this is a student built site, the JavaScript loads the main page content.

const parsedUrl = new URL(location.href),
    page = parsedUrl.searchParams.get("page") ?? "video";
const url = "pages/" + page + ".html";
$("#main-content").load(url,function(response, status, jqXhr){
    if (status === "error") {
        this.textContent = "Page not found, please try again";

The error is inconsistent - I am seeing it on MacOS Cataline 10.15.7 (19H2026), but I don't see it all the time on other devices.
