You'll need all of your plugins & settings using HTTPS links too, and verify the sitemap generator is creating HTTPS links too.

There are plenty of examples in Google to help create a .htaccess that rewrites HTTP to HTTPS

Also, FYI, you're going to take a hit while Google is reindexing your pages as HTTPS.

I haven't looked yet, any chance there is a XenForo guide somewhere for rewriting all of your posts so you internal linking is fixed from HTTP to HTTPS after the change? (backup your DB first!)

It's one of those things that we'll all probably need to do eventually. Google is already mentioning it but it's not a significant part of rankings yet.

The .htaccess rewrite will take care of them but otherwise you can do a simple query to replace the post content:
Code:
UPDATE xf_post SET message = REPLACE(message,'current_content','new_content');

I don't see the point of it for a small forum.

I couldn't care less about Google ranking, etc.
^ indeed. If you're running a small forum there really isn't a need for you to be running on an SSL certificate, but if you're storing credit card information or more valuable info, whatever that may be, that's what it's more on the lines.. Meant for.
