This is awesome! And I have to say thank you as it seems to work! I'll let you know if I notice any bugs!
I am not sure what you mean as for the record! When I was in the post editor before Enable Force SSL Exclusively, the slug definitely put my shared SSL address by default I.e.http://xxx.hostageprovide.com/%postname% (That might have been the point you just made, but not reassuring when you first try it!)
But I have to admit I didn't test it to see if that would the case (reflect) once published on the public side! (If you want me to test it I can).
Now, I am not the most savyy guy out there :) (maybe a good reason to make it idiot proof) :)
But I initially assumed forcing for admin, would not compromise or influence my public side of the website (non admin side). http://mysite.com
So maybe you can make it clear somewhere that you need both, forcing for admin (http://xxx.hostageprovide.com/) and Enable Force SSL Exclusively so that it works for your admin and doesn't conflict with your public side! I hope you understand what I mean! In my own stupid world :) Forcing for admin only concerns the admin side :)
Now that I have done both (There is no confusion), when creating a post, the slug shows as http://mysite.com/%postname% (even tho my admin post edit URL is http://xxx.hostageprovide.com/wp-admin/post-new.php) so that it is easy for me to understand it is supposed to be working ( I have also tested it and it works)
If I don't notice any conflicts i will definitely make a small donation :) Unless I buy SSL! Coz you saved me $50 box :) Many thanks!
To be honest I could set up htaccess ect! (as per wordpress codex, and it would look cleaner but not provide more real security as far as I understand as I am the admin ; this is set up only for admin, and I have set it up myself), But as I don't have root access to set up a self signed SSl. your plugin really rules and helped me! I don't mind to have an admin URL that is my shared & Free certificate URL (http://xxx.hostageprovide.com/) , no normal user will be aware about it! (Unless I missed something else, please let me know) Thank you so much!
*for generic users information, my hosting is servage, I chose it a few years back as it was cheap. I lost root access but it served the purpose for a few cheap clients. They shared ssl definitely seems to work with your wonderful plugin. otherwise for consumers interest! I have had a few down time with servage, and my sites hacked with old wordpress versions. But no major problems over the last three years! But yes I have increased the basic wordpress security plugins, directory access and password! Check google for the latest solutions!
Thank you plugin maker! You deserve a few bucks from anyone using your plugin! If you want a tattoo design I'll do it for free! (Japanese style only).
