Is https working on the server?
Have you changed the forum url setttings to use https?

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas

if you are using SMF 1.1.*, you will not get full https support unless you upgrade to SMF 2.0 to use the image proxy.

and either way (1.1.x or 2.0.x) purchasing the certificate is not enough - you then have to change your settings int he forum to USE https... and change your htaccess to FORCE https
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
