Re: https vs http for bbPress URL

Just an addendum that might prove useful to others.

I changed the index page to http, which I thought was all that had to be done. However, after doing so, I was getting a mixture of https and http pages – the home page of the forum was http, but any page inside (eg: forum headings and posts) were coming up with the https prefix.

There was a simple solution: change the URL in the General Settings section of the Admin area! I guess it was assumed I’d done this (never underrate the capacity of a tech uninitiate to not do the right thing!).

The forum uses only HTTP now, and there’s a bonus that comes with this (which is why I thought it worth writing this post) – the pages load MUCH FASTER!
