    Hi - we've recently acquired SSL for our sites, and I'm wondering if there is way inside DNN to redirect http:// requests to use https:// ?

      depending on your IIS you have to install the Url Rewriter module for IIS (before IIS 10.0 version 1709).

      Then implement the following rewrite rule in your web.config:

            [rule name="HTTP to HTTPS redirect" stopProcessing="true"]
               [match url="(.*)" /]
                  [add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" ignoreCase="true" /]
               [action type="Redirect" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" redirectType="Permanent" /]

      (change [ to < and ] to >)

      Happy DNNing!
