  • rowtheboats



    Is there a trick to get the WordPress HTTPS plugin to work on the login page correctly? Here’s my dilemma:

    Using shared SSL
    plugin version 2.0
    Wordpress 3.2.1
    Typical URL –
    FORCE_SSL_ADMIN wordpress variable off
    FORCE_SSL_LOGIN wordpress variable off

    Plugin Settings:
    SSL host set to
    Force SSL exclusive – Y
    Force SSL admin – Y

    The problem… in wp-login is this line:
    <form name=”loginform” id=”loginform” action=”<?php echo site_url(‘wp-login.php’, ‘login_post’) ?>” method=”post”>

    If I hit the wp-login using, every link in the page source is correctly evaluated to the SSL host URL given EXCEPT the form action url which uses a site_url call. This gets evaluated as So upon a form submission, this page will fail because there is no shared SSL available on

    Is this a bug in the plugin? Or is this expected? And if this is expected, how are you able to get logged in using shared SSL? Am I missing something simple?

    Based on other posts, I also tried the 1.9.2 plugin and that caused infinite looping of the wp-login.php page.
