I get the message:

Everything should now be set up to use SSL. To join the future of 1999, please use https://deadlycupcakes.org/forums/ in your bookmarks instead of http.

So I got the https://deadlycupcakes.org/forums/ version of the site and login but when I login the message returns and Chrome tells me the site is Not secure

What URL do you end up at after login? Do you do the quick login at the top-right or click "Login" on the lower row ("Home Help Search Login Register)?

If you see a page that's Not Secure, you can usually just change http to https in the URL and get to the same page. There are still a few links that come standard in SMF that assume http, so with your help, I can try to track it down.

Looks like https://deadlycupcakes.org/forums/ does not use the SSL cert, but https://www.deadlycupcakes.org/forums/ does. Dammit.

For now, if you add www. in front of deadlycupcakes.org in your URLs, that will use SSL with the cert.

I will try to figure out why our cert is bound to www, not *. Sorry about that!

The cert seems fine, with deadlycupcakes.org and www.deadlycupcakes.org DNS SANs, and it is presented for the main connection when you visit https://deadlycupcakes.org/forums.  However, the content at that URL contains a mix of https:// and http:// links; in particular, the form submission actions for the login and search boxes are insecure, which causes Chrome to consider the connection not fully secure.  The content at https://www.deadlycupcakes.org/forums contains far fewer http:// links.

Thanks, Marco! I see a similar issue whenever certain linked avatars or gifs people post from http:// sources.

Since I'm not sure if any modifications I make to the login form on the home page will survive a software update (and a hint of laziness), please click Login on the top bar to login rather than the default form to ensure you are logging in with SSL.
