    So recently just installed ssl on my server and the problem is that if I load my site with https (and select to see only secure page data) all of the images are gone. Obviously, this is becuse the images are calling for the http location and the unsecured images are not loading.

    I have found a plugin that will force ssl on every page. So even if someone types http:// mysite . com, they will be taken to https:// mysite, com . All of the images would show up but that means I would have to change every image called to https. That I guess I could do, but if there is an easier way, and you know of it, I would love to know as well.

    Also, now that I have insicure data, this damn window pops up and asks me if I want to see it on EVERY page. I could see where this would piss off my visitors because it pisses me off, but I also ask for personal info on the site and people have asked me why it is not secure....

    I also use the cforms plugin and those things look retarded if viewed securely. So much so that I think people will not want to fill them out.

    Agh, I could go on but I wont. I just need to know, is there a way to secure all of this stuff and if so, will that damn pop up about the insecure stuff STOP!
