WE recently migrated our site, http://www.galaxyreptiles.com to WP Engine. We have an SSL and we are only forcing the checkout and the backend through the SSL.
We assume the rest of the site should be http, it is not. In fact if we want to change the settings>>general to http://www.galaxyreptiles.com, we can't it will default.
The techs at WP Engine state that they feel is is plugin. and below is the list of plugins on the site. We are eagerly looking for a solution. I mean the site works, and the site is secure and we had a great SLL ub it is nice to have everything working perfectly. Below is a list of plugins, can any of these cause a site to be forced and to be https.

Our developer/fixer feels that it is the SSL or something that WP Engine is doing that is causing the problem.
We would appreciate any input.
