I am one who is very paranoid, and love to use encryption. Sometimes I forget to use the den using ssl and I know others do too. There is a new
setting for everyones profile, it is called 'Always force https'. What it does is when checked it will make sure you are using the https enabled
version of the den. If you are not, then it forwards your current page into the https version. It looks the exact same, it just has the extra level
This is by default turned off. But if you wish to use the den with SSL you can just enable it and help make the whole process easier on yourself.
One note, this is a profile specific option. So if you access the site before your logged in then you obviously can't be forwarded to ssl (as your
profile settings have not loaded yet). So you may still want to access the forums directly from https://den.spicylemons.com but if you forget like me this is still a very nice feature.
