    Hi mzwp, I know how to do this. Follow these instructions.

    1. Go to the admin dashboard.
    2. Point you mouse over Settings and click General.
    3. Where it says WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) replace the http:// part with https:// for both of them.
    4. Click Save Changes

    Hope I helped.

    Strange issue when trying to force https://

    The SSL certificate is installed and working.
    Here is a test page:

    But if i try to goto: https://www.drivetimeworship.com I'm directed to http://

    I went in the database wp_options table and changed the settings for siteurl and home to https://www.drivetimeworship.com

    I also tried the plugin listed ( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-https/) above and it locked the site up?? I had to FTP and uninstall the plugin and removed the wp_option table entries by hand.

    Lastly I tried removing the .htaccess file and then going to Setting > Permalinks to let WordPress recreate it.

    any ideas??
