WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
Documenting options, please (1 post)

    I would like to see more tooltip documentation, or a documentation page that clearly outlines the features in the plugin admin page:

    1) SSL-Host - CLEAR enough
    2) SSL Host Port - do you need to set 443 or only set when deviates from 443 ?
    3) Force SSL Exclusively -
    a) When do you need this ? I update a site with plenty of posts, none having the SSL checkbox checked and all remains SSL even when tampering the protocol to http (on 80, Apache is set DocumentRoot to an empty folder containing only a 301 redirect index.php that applies the https, but that is root entry only, isn't it?)
    b) What will happen when enabled in my case ? It looks as if I don't need this. Unless it removes the SSL option in posts as all shall be SSL
    4) Force SSL Admin - Previous option should take care of this as well, right ? ("Exclusively")
    5) HTTPS Fron page - What is the use case here?

    For now, I don't dare to touch anything as the system seem to respond adequately. But it would be good to know, when you commonly need which setting.
