    I've tried many things, from editing .htaccess file to making page rules in Cloudflare, but everything i do creates a Redirect Loop...

    Here's the issue:

    When a user visits http://earnyourrights.tk/forum its not encrypted

    but when they login it switches it to https.

    How do i make it always be encrypted, everything i add to the .htaccess file in regards to the https makes a redirect loop :(

    What is your .htaccess contents? If it causes a redirect loop you likely have conflicting rules in it.

    And have read the instructions on using SSL with CloudFlare. There are a few "gotchas" depending on which TYPE of SSL you are setting up on CF.

    My .htaccess is the default for Xenforo.
    #    Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
    #    cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
    #<IfModule mod_security.c>
    #    SecFilterEngine Off
    #    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    ErrorDocument 401 default
    ErrorDocument 403 default
    ErrorDocument 404 default
    ErrorDocument 405 default
    ErrorDocument 406 default
    ErrorDocument 500 default
    ErrorDocument 501 default
    ErrorDocument 503 default
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        RewriteEngine On
        #    If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
        #    line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
        #    of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
        #RewriteBase /xenforo
        #    This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
        #RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
        RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
        RewriteRule ^(data/|js/|styles/|install/|favicon\.ico|crossdomain\.xml|robots\.txt) - [NC,L]
        RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
    I have read them, but I will read them again encase i missed something.

    Edit: After Re-Reading Cloudflare SSL they say when using Flexable you need to use
    RewriteCond %{HTTP:CF-Visitor} !'"scheme":"http"'
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.domain.com/$1 [L]

    When inputting those it creates a Redirect Loop...
