    I'm planning to enable SSL on my forum, which means hot-linked images in old threads will cause problems (if the URL is "http", if I understand correctly).

    What can I do about these existing hot-linked images? I haven't been using the Image Proxy feature until just now. Can I somehow make the Image Proxy cache these old images as well?

    They will be cached when they are next requested.

    Ah yes, I see that now. So if a certain image is not requested until after I enable SSL, will the image still work?

    Note that with the latest version any images which are redirected will still not work, you will need to change their URL to the one they are redirected to
