WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
Don't think this plugin is being supported anymore (9 posts)

    Hi,

    Yesterday, when I went into the admin area of this plugin, I was met with a barage of messages stating that the owner of the website for this plugin had not verified his change of information associated with the website. Has anyone else experienced this? This is too bad, because it's a great plugin. However, I'm not going to house something on my site that is no longer supported.

    Best regards,

    Maria

    Yes, something is definitely wrong with this plugin. It looks like one of the problems is external calls to wordpresshttps.com are failing because the site is down. Also had a strange issue where one of the admins couldn't view the main posts list in the dashboard.

    Yes, that's one of the things that's been happening with me. I have found that just getting a basic certificate is just not enough! There are so many other issues involved, and this plugin seemed AT FIRST to take care of them, and now it does not at all. Very unstable. Thanks for sharing bjorn!

    Best,

    Hi,
    I am getting the same issues with the admin area of this plugin. Does anyone have any alternatives to this plugin?

    Thanks.

    If you just need to secure one or a couple of pages and are comfortable adding custom code, Joost has a tutorial at the following url: https://yoast.com/wordpress-ssl-setup/

    Basically, you just replace the page id with the id of the page you want to secure instead of is_page( 123 ) - twice in the first function. Also if ( 123 == $post->ID )
    in the second function.

    Thanks for the feedback bjorn2404. I saw that article too. He is an excellent resource. I need the whole site to be secure. I looked at these two plugins as an alternative: http://wordpress.org/plugins/nertworks-site-wide-ssl/ and http://wordpress.org/plugins/ssl-insecure-content-fixer/. The problem is that it causes the site to be only partially secure as there are some elements pulling via http instead of https. This plugin somehow overrode those issues and the certificate was working fine.I can't seem to find anything out there that does what this plugin does. I am not a programmer per say so I would need a foolproof method to implement.

    Thank you.

    iwpdev,

    I would not recommend either of those plugins. This one came closest, BUT ... I just had to cancel my SSL I had purchased, because between not being able to get a plugin that would take care of the job that the SSL was not able to accomplish alone, and the fact that I need my whole site to be secure as well, I decided that it just has to be done right.

    I had the exact same experience as you. And you wouldn't believe the various song and dances I was hearing from my hosting service that sold me the SSL, and a membership plugin that had suggested getting an SSL before installing their plugin.

    I will let you know if I come across anything helpful. I am continuing my search on this vigilantly.

    Best,

    Maria

    Well, if you need your entire site to be secure and you're on an Apache server with the SSL certificate already installed you could just update your htaccess file and re-direct any non-secure URL on your site with something like the following above the default WordPress rules:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
    RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

    I really appreciate you getting back to me on this. I tried this and the issue is that there are images and also sprites used by another plugin that are not showing up in IE since it is using http. Originally the site was built in http, then the ssl added later. I think this plugin was rewriting their URLS or something to be https so everything would show up and there would be no conflicts.

    Thanks.
