    for over a year, we have had an SSL certificate running on the server. I edited contol files to force the site to redirect to https...I saw it do so, only to go back to http....

    Well, the Trainboard.com forum is located in a sub directory that had it's own control file.....once I added a redirect to that file, the SSL is read as it should be.

    There is no green lock due to some content loading as http, it is still secure...just not as pretty.
     
    Onizukachan, Atani and Hardcoaler like this.

    The items loading as http are the index, which makes no sense, and the ade which is most likely the module or a short code....all forms are now secure

    I am still not quite certain how it all works. My own web site, via the host which apparently controls it, has visitors via both http and https. ???

    You have an SSL certificate, edit your .htaccess to have this script...


    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?train-orders\.com
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.train-ordes.com/$1 [R,L]

    John- What does this rule create? A redirect of one to all SSL, or?
