    Most probably not, if there are no comments here :wink:

    One reason for that is that there is not much info about it. If your forum is using SSL or not shouldn't be a forum setting. If you have an SSL certificate and your provider set up your domain to be reachable at, there is nothing else to do: that "applies SSL to the forum"

    I would assume (and I hope!) that the reason why la_joe hasn't asked a second time or bumped his question has been that he experienced how simple it is.
