Today I purchased a new SSL certificate for Garden.org. That means that once again we are an encrypted website. The only change you should notice is that your web address bar now should show a green lock icon on most pages of the site, and all the links that you previously visited will show that you haven't seen them (since you haven't viewed them under the SSL version of the site).

Hopefully there won't be any issues.

Why do this? It seems like all websites that allow users to login with a password are eventually going to be forced into using encryption, and I don't want to be the last one to get on the bandwagon. Last time I tried this was a few years ago and I backed the changes out for several reasons. This time I plan to make it work permanently.

Hi Dave,

It's great to see that you've implemented SSL (been waiting for a while for this). I'm sure you're aware that next year Chrome will start flagging sites with logins that don't have SSL as insecure.

@Kywoods - try pressing CTRL+F5 (forces the browser to refresh its cache for the page you're viewing).
