SSL is something you’ve probably heard of, it’s that thing that turns your http:// into https://. You may wonder if it’s something you need to have on your site or need to add to your clients’ sites. Our answer is yes, but let’s discuss 😀

Thanks for the tip on Better Search and Replace! I was using another database plugin that is more complicated, where you have to rename it and upload it by http://FTP... this is just so much simpler. I feel like it’s good practice to delete the plugin right away though.
I was updating a site to SSL and Better Search and Replace was not catching everything. A little digging and I realized that in the video module I had some auto-generated image overlays that were http not https, at i.ytimg.com. I’ve been able to go into all the video modules and just throw the “s” in there and it works. Just thought I’d mention it in case anyone else gets caught up in that. I have a padlock now! Yay!
