Enormous decrease in google indexed URLs

Been in Webmaster tools this morning. I've noticed a massive decrease from 120,000 to just 1000 indexed URLs, the drop off was quite dramatic and started in Jun and the graph line takes a 45 degree nose dive to today. Then when I look at my sitemaps they are not there, well there is one /forum/sitemap.php that was submitted in 2014. They were there last time I looked, which I admit was a Looong time ago :oops: My xF sitemaps are checked to be sent automatically. Thinking about it we moved to https in May or June, would that have anything to do with it?

If I search for site:mywebsite.com . I only get around 51,000 results.

Don't worry about it.

Google only has 194,000 results for my forum, and it has 9 million posts and 431,778 threads (not the forum in my signature).

What you are describing is normal google behavior.
