    I was curious about this SSL feature. I tried but I didn't feel any changes after using the code in this page:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Over_SSL

    How can I know that my login and admin is secured? I don't feel any changes whatsoever. How to indicate the security?

    Thanks...

    I tried it and the change was immediate - I could not access the admin or logout pages. There's obviously more than simply adding that one line as that page you linked to suggests.

    Hi corona79,

    So, all we need to do is insert the following into wp-config.php:

    define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true);

    And subsequently, we just need to point our web browser to:

    https://blogdomain/wp-admin?

    I'm using WP 2.9 & I'd inserted the above code into wp-config.php.

    When I'd tried access https://jangworld.com/blog/wp-admin, I'd encountered the following error (in Firefox):

    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at jangworld.com.

    * The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.

    * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
    connection.

    * If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

    I can access http://jangworld.com/blog/wp-admin, then I encounter the same error after login.

    Cheers.
