Support » Plugin: WordPress HTTPS (SSL) » [Plugin: WordPress HTTPS (SSL)] Redirects to Homepage on pages where SSL is required

  • I’m using the WordPress HTTPS plugin on a site that is using Cloudflare SSL Flexible SSL proxy.

    I can access any given URL by using https, but when I force SSL on a particular page using either the “Secure post” option on each page, or by entering the URL in the SSL filter, I get redirected back to the home page.

    If I disable those options and visit the page directly using SSL however, it works.

  • I’m having this exact problem as well.

    On mediatemple.

    Is there a fix?

    I too am on media template.

    For the meantime, I implemented my own setting in functions.php

    Basically, I check for a custom attribute called ‘ssl’ on my page, and if it exists, it redirects to the SSL page.

    I am running into the same issue, also on Media Temple. @arashster can you post the function you are using?


    function checkSsl() {
    	if (g('ssl') != '' && g('ssl') != 'off' && g('ssl') != '0' && $_SERVER['HTTPS'] != 'on') {
    		$vurl = "https://". $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
    		header("Location: " . $vurl);
    function g($attribute, $random=false, $page='') {
    	global $post;
    	global $post_attributes;
    	$return = '';
    	if ($page == '') {
    		$page = $post->ID;
    	if($post_attributes == '') {
    		$post_attributes = array();
    	if($post_attributes[$page] == '') {
    		$post_attributes[$page] = get_post_custom($page);
    	if (!$random) {
    		$return = $post_attributes[$page][$attribute][0];
    	} else {
    		$r = $post_attributes[$page][$attribute];
    		if (is_array($r)){
    	    	$x = array_rand($r);
    		    $return = $post_attributes[$page][$attribute][$x];
    	return $return;

    put the two functions in functions.php

    g() is a shorthand function I use to get the custom attribute for the current page or any other page.
    just put checkSsl() at the top of page.php or any other page template and it should redirect. Quick and dirty, I know.
