Support » Plugin: Really Simple SSL » All Smooth So Far

  • I was a bit nervous about setting up SSL and breaking my website but Hostgator were relaxed about recommending Really Simple SSL so I bit the bullet with one of my less important websites. The set up was very quick and easy. You just have to back up your site – I use Updraft – first and then go to the WP theme editor and switch out any http:// urls for //. I’m not sure how important that second step is. I expect I missed a few URLs in the code but I’ve had no issues. After this, you just click and ‘hey presto!’ You get the padlock and secure notification on all pages.

    There were a few page errors in the immediate aftermath but after refreshing the browser they went away and haven’t come back. I’ve since activated this on my most important sites with no issues.

    So, I’m happy to give 5* for providing such a simple approach to an important security measure.
