Manage Kindle Content & Devices

Getting content on your devices is as easy as emailing content directly to your device.  When you signed up for your Kindle service, you were issued an email address.  If you have several devices, like a kindle, and an iPhone or iPad with the Kindle app installed, you may have multiple addresses.

You can even convert content to Kindle format along the way if you know how.

To manage your Kindle content and devices, visit

A few other things you can do on the Settings tab there:

  • check the email address assigned to each device you use for Kindle.
  • set up email addresses that are allowed to email content to your devices.
  • turn on WhysperSync to keep your last page read, hightlights, etc. synchronized across devices.  That way you can read on the phone while you're waiting for an appointment, then continue on your Kindle when you get home.



Convert PDF to Kindle Format

If you're looking to send a .PDF file to your Kindle, but you don't like the way it displays or you want to have the Kindle reading enhancements, email it to your Kindle account with 'convert' in the subject line.  Kindle will convert it for you!

Don't know your Kindle address? Here's how to find it, and manage all your devices and content.

Certificates and Mixed Content Errors

When a secure (https enabled) website is displaying a caution on the certificate and warning about mixed content, you need to identify and correct the content on the page that is causing thje warning.

A good check is to  visit and enter the URL of the troublesome site.  It will quickly identify the elements – typically images – that need to be corrected.

If the images are on the same site you can usually just change http:// to https:// in the image URL, or alternatively remove the from the url of the image. If the image or element is on another site you can try changing the protocol to https, but you may have to bring the element onto your own site or live with the warning.  Just just accepting the warning is a bad idea because it caused your audience to lose confidence in your site.

Another good discussion of this with additional options can be found at ManageWP, it's worth a read.
