WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[resolved] securing the front page lock down the site (9 posts)

    Hi, I installed your plugin, changed the home and site url and now when I click on secure the front page, it lock me out and I cant get in. The hosting guys have since then put a code in to force all pages to be SSL and so now I can login. Not sure, do I now need SSL plugin at all? if so how do I make it work without getting locked out? I have a login widget in the sidebar that does not work since adding an SSL cert. I was hoping your plugin would solve that, but it is not. What is your suggestion all these things? Thanks

    Have you tried enabling Force SSL Admin?

    prior to this adjustment from hosting guys, that was grayed out and now it is not. I just set it, but it is still not letting me login on the front page only if I go back to wp-login.php there it works fine.

    I tried with other logins too, just in case, but still not letting me login any other pages...apparently those login forms do not use https and cant figure out why

    Can you look at the code that creates the form? Perhaps it's hard-coded.

    You said you have a login widget. Where does it come from, a plugin or a theme?

    If you have Force SSL Admin enabled, the plugin should change any form or link that points to the login page to HTTPS. I just tested this on one of my sites to confirm. Can you post a link?
