My board URL is set to the https address under the Basic Board information. The problem is, even when I access the site using https, all the links go to http. Is there a setting somewhere I am missing?

edit:

sorry, thought I put this in troubleshooting. Please move if possible.

Can you post a URL to your site?

Check the base href in the page source. All internal links are based on the base href. It should include https if you use that to visit the forum.

I don't have a secure cert to test this, but I can see in the code that it checks the protocol when building the base href. This check might be failing for some reason.

Assuming no customizations, you should probably submit a ticket. This problem might require some debugging.

Did you ever figure this out yet?

You might be better off setting up a .htaccess and forcing https

Code:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://yourwebsite.com/ [R,L]
Edit:
Nevermind, I am also seeing a few issues with it as well..
