And yes, i've read all the SSL threads here already. It doesn't answer my questions. All people are talking various things about the ssl support. I want to know this before i buy it.
Yes, 1.1 is only beta, but development speed is fast here. If you currently have a forum it might be worth waiting for 1.1 gold as it most likely imports your vb3 / ipb user settings with the official importer.
There are unofficial importers for other forum software, but currently they work with 1.0.x They will be updated to 1.1 but we don't know when
I've been able to get SSL working pretty well with Apache, but nginx seems to be a little messed up.
Using the SSL URL to my forum, it displays my xenforo installation correctly, but all the page links are generated as http:// even though I have my Board URL set to "//myxenforo.com/community".
Not sure what the issue is, but I suspect it's a XenForo thing because my Wordpress installation links are generated correctly. I'm just using a self signed certificate at the moment, but I wouldn't think that would have anything to do with it.
Viewing the HTML source, with nginx, the baseref reverts to http://, while the apache served pages are https://. Could it be an APC cache thing if the templates are stored as files?
