There's not much configuring that needs to be done. However if you have added a lot of hardcoded http links into your script you will have to go search those and manually change them over to https. Google SEO works fine in https.

You might want to explicitly state https:// in your board name, tho.

If someone posted link of any thread before I got SSL, which is HTTP link. That link won't work anymore? Means I will lose all links directing to my website?

If you've used LetsEncrypt, it will ask if you want all links to redirect to SSL. That's what I do, and all my links are now HTTPS compliant.

You can place code in your htaccess, regardless of whom you get the certificate from, to redirect http to https. Google it, there's plenty of examples around.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =$WebsiteName
RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,QSA,R=permanent]

I'd think that would work.

So apparently you can not use SSL and Cloudflare at the same time, you need to upgrade to paid account on Cloudflare to do that or you should simply remove Cloudflare from your site to get SSL. What a joke.

Which would you prefer? SSL or Cloudflare?

Cloudflare provides free certificates for all sites (how it works: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/...ions-mean-); the only problem you could encounter here is having to use their certificate instead of your own (e.g. from Let’s Encrypt) between your users and Cloudflare servers, which is set up automatically (you can still use your certificate for the connection between Cloudflare and your server).
