  • rafaelmagic



    Love the plugin, my site is very secure. I have been reading about shared SSL and securing the wp-login page with SSL. I believe your SSL settings are for a dedicated SSL certificate.

    For people like me with a shared hosting and shared ssl certificate, I read to add this two lines to the wpconfig.php file:

    define(‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘’);
    define( ‘WP_CONTENT_URL’, ‘’);

    Is this Best Pratice or do I also have to add to the wpconfig file?:

    define(‘FORCE_SSL_LOGIN’, true);

    Now since I am hiding (redirecting) the wp-login location with your plugin, will it create a conflict?
