WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[resolved] Sitewide settings default for multisite setups (3 posts)

    First I would like to say thank you for the plug-in, it has helped fix some issues I was running across with a multisite / buddypress install. Essentially the "settings" page on buddypress not being secure when changing password / email.

    My inquiry is to whether or not a sitewide setting can be enabled for existing or new multisites as they are added? I have installed wp-https on the main network site, at which time I can select "network enable" or just enable individually on sites through their respective consoles. What I would like to do is network enable it with a certain set of default settings enabled.

      Tick "Force SSL Exclusively"
      Add "/settings/" under URL filters

    Now I did see a network.php on github, but it states it's disabled ATM. Is there anyway to currently change the settings above to be defaults when the module is installed in network enabled mode?

    Check out Github and let me know what you think. I've tested it on a subdomain and a folder install, so it should work. Let me know if you find any bugs.

    Installed update today via WordPress, sorry missed the Github update. Nice ability to change SSL Host, but question regarding purpose. For example:

    maindomain.com SSL Host = maindomain.com
    news.maindomain.com SSL Host = maindomain.com
    buddypress.maindomain.com SSL Host = buddypress.maindomain.com

    The main domain works fine, as it should it's the main SSL cert. If I change the news. domain to include news.maindomain.com for SSL Host it caused the Site Login and other https links to go to news.maindomain.com. When I change to just maindomain.com, as outlined above, it takes me to the main domain login window. This implementation is great, allowing me to redirect users on a multisite (subdomains) back to the original page to logon. I am thinking this was intention of using SSL Host line?

    When using Buddypress, if I change the SSL Host to reflect maindomain.com it returns an invalid page (404) on links. I am thinking this is Buddypress related, and not your plug-in.

    Now using a folder specification "/settings/" I tested with Buddypress subdomain using "remove unsecure elements" ticked, but it seems images are still pulled from http links, causing mixed content.

    Also a test post selected to be "secure post" on post creation, also returned mixed content under news.subdomain.com.

    Found this bug? When setting SSL Host via network control panel, it works as intended, changing links as mentioned above. Although when changed under a site itself, it causes formatting to drop; CSS not loaded.
