Support » Fixing WordPress » SSL, https, non-encrypted security messages

  • I haven’t found any solutions to this problem. I’m creating a site where people will pay for a membership. I’m using Magic Members, Theme My Login, and have tried using plugins: Admin SSL and https for WordPress.

    I need for users to see a padlock without any partial encryption messages coming up. I realize that this is happening because images and probably the css is not being accessed through https. I don’t know how to do this. I was hoping that installing the https plugin would fix this problem. It doesn’t.

    I also notice that when I put a check by: Secure my site with SSL within the Admin ssl settings, I can no longer access users. Once I un-check it, I can access my users again. This seems like a flaw.

    I have to get this working before we can take any orders. People need to know that their information is securely transferred and so the partial encryption messages are unacceptable. Why isn’t this an easy thing? Everyone charging for a membership should have an SSL and users should be able to easily access these pages and feel secure about submitting their sensitive information.

    If I have a register page that is asking for private information, how do I enter that page name in Admin SSL in the URL List? The directions say:

    Additional URLs
    Admin SSL forces wp-login.php and wp-admin/profile.php to be secured (these are the pages on which you can enter a password). When HTTPS is being used, wp-content/* and wp-includes/* are also secured. Here you can add other URLs to be secured by Admin SSL.

    Entering wp-admin/register.php doesn’t work

    The only way I know how to link to this page is:

    If you go this page using Firefox, you’ll see the exclamation point on the padlock. Click on that and it tells you that the connection is partially encrypted.

    If I access this page using IE, I get a security warning box.

    This is crazy. Why isn’t there a step by step tutorial telling web designers exactly how to do all this. I’ve spent days searching the internet for answers. I’ve seen other people with the same problem but I haven’t been able to fix anything.
