    Is anyone using SSL for secure logins? If so I'd appreciate hearing any tips you have for setting it up. Thanks.

    I think I have it working. I edited the login portion of index.php.
    original:
    < a href=""<?php">/wp-login.php">login< /a>
    modified:
    < a href="//www.mysite.com/wp-login.php"">login< /a>
    Now when I go to log in from my main page, I'm taken to a secure page to enter username and password, then end up on the "Create New Post" page which is also secure.

    You know, I never thought of using it. My account comes with one. I already had a link to wp-login.php on my page, so I just changed the same thing. It worked fine. Any pages loaded from the wp-login.php is https (SSL).

    No need to apologise for asking a question. We were all newbies at one time. All we ask is that you search first and try a few things and give us as much info as you have to help us help you! :)

    umm, The change did not work for me.

    Is the change mentioned in earlier post correct, quotes et al?

    < a href="//www.mysite.com/wp-login.php"">login< /a>

    The quotes do not match..I have tired both, with and without extra quote.

    The reason it did not work could be my SSL cert is not installed propely. Any suggestions how I can check if cert is installed correctly, maybe with a simlple php webpage?

    Help apprecaited...

    Thanks
    Prem
