I cannot risk sending my WordPress 'admin' password in the clear. SO I was pleased to learn about FORCE_SSL_ADMIN. But when I use this, the Dashboard is badly broken (some automatic admin content like WordPress News is missing) and tags just don't work at all.
Is this a known issue? I must be doing something wrong. An ecosystem with so many wonderful plugins for spam protection and login security surely would make sure everything works with SSL, right?
Pointers to RTFM gladly accepted.
