SSL glitches

EDIT: Ah never mind, figured it had to do something with config.php. Problem has been solved.

Hello,

I have recently set my DNS nameservers to redirect to CloudFlare's, and they have provided me with a (universally shared) SSL certificate.
However, upon enabling hsts (6-months), forcing http redirect to https, my whole forum (excluding the acp) was messed up.
Chrome also tells me that my connection is not fully secure, but I was able to receive a secure connection through the acp.
Going through a different browser (in this case, I have used Safari, being it the only other browser I have installed), the forums looks fine, but there was no sign of having any secure connection.

Is this due to how long the changes may take to apply, or is it because of https redirects, or hsts?

It can be because of hard coded use of http directed towards images used frequently. If it works in Safari (and you don't normally use Safari) then it could be a browser cache issue.
Of course, it's rather hard to tell for sure since you don't supply a link to the site to see if this is the issue (hard coded http calls).
