I have an SSL certificate on my server. When I use the Global Configuration Server setting to force SSL on the Entire Site - or just as an administrator  - the Limelight template is altered so that the menu structure collapses. Is this an S5 menu coding problem? I saw the forum discussion in September 2013 regarding the same issues with the General Commerce template. Please give me a detailed line-by-line coding solution. (My site is presently running without the SSL in effect.)

1) In the configuration.php file where it says "Live Site URL" for Joomla make sure you enter an https:// url so all the content/modules can be called securely.
2) In the index.php you may want to change any Google Font calls that are set as http://googlefonts... to //googlefonts so they can be called securely or non securely

Those are the only things that would affect an SSL certificate. If you have issues beyond this please post a URL that illustrates the issue so I can take a look at what the certificate is blocking. Also note that SSL certs often require you to specify with or without www.
