Note on Mixed Content

The links above to Universal Viewer use the HTTP version of the site to avoid Mixed Content errors. Likewise, you will need to use version of the Bodleian Manifest Editor served over HTTP if any of your IIIF images are served via HTTP. See this article on Mixed Content for an explanation of the issue.
