you can use an htaccess rule to force all http requests to https, see the following page for details:

https://

Thank you. Took me a couple of tries, but my site has that implemented. It makes a difference to clients - but does the https:// versus http:// really make the site more secure? Just wondering why Security Assist does not implement this as an option if it does make it more secure. Or did I miss that page explanation within Security Assist. Again, thank you for your valued time. Cathy

really, we are talking about 2 separate types of security.

SSL is used to secure information when it is passed from one web page to another.

Security Assist is used to add login functionality so that only logged in users can view certain parts of your web site. In other words, to password protect pages in your site.

you dont need to have SSL in place to password protect pages in your site.

Ssl

Thanx Jason for the simple explanation that makes more sense now sense. Somehow when I thought about Security Assist that is would protect within the page and well as page to page. I appreciate your input. Happy Holidays!
