BROKE MY ACCESS TO THE PAGES LIST
By , for WP 4.5.3

Avoid this... it is dangerous. While I can access individual pages this thing did something that stopped me from being able to access the pages list by shifting it to an https from http.

someone tell me how to fix this!

Works just fine
By , for WP 4.5.2

I was nervous installing this plugin on the non-profit site with Benevolence Theme. I just need my donation form on a Https page, It works great! Thanks!!

Deactivating this makes css invisible.

Now I can't even deactivate this thing. Please help.

This is the recommended SSL solution for WP? Oh boy.

One would think that in 2016, with security never being more important, that this plugin would be kept up to date. There's nothing like installing a 3 year old plugin, that immediately throws errors and needs hacked to work correctly, to handle secure pages on a new site.

Yeah, I know, program it myself. It's just that this functionality is so necessary to so many that it really should be included in wordpress core, not wasting away here in the repository.

Partial fix for plugin
By , for WP 4.4.2

As mentioned by others, force_ssl_login has been deprecated and if you use it anywhere (e.g., like setting it to true in your wp-config file while debug mode mode is enabled), it may break your site, especially if you've installed and activated this plugin.

That said, if you disable all instances of force_ssl_login in the plugin's code, the plugin can still be used to turn on ssl for specific pages, as its original functionality intended, where a proper ssl certificate has been installed/configured. Fyi, I'm using it for that purpose with Gravity Forms and their Paypal Payments Pro addon.

Works, but you may need to change a line in the code

Search the code for force_ssl_login (you'll find it in the core.php file line 559) and change this to force_ssl_admin.

According to the errors you'll find if you enable wp debug mode force_ssl_login was depreciated with WordPress 4.4 and should simply be replaced with force_ssl_admin. While I can't verify that it's working exactly as intended now (I can only take other folks word for this) at the very least it cleaned up all the crazy amount of debug warnings and errors I was getting and the backend seems a tad faster.

Had to disable WooCommerce first
By , for WP 4.4.1

Worked great after I disabled WooCommerce.

Do Not Use
By , for WP 4.4.1

This plugin has reached its end of usefulness. Broke my site after activation on the latest software.

No Updates, Not Functionally
By , for WP 4.4

With PHP 7 and WP 4.4 is it not Working.
Since 3 Years no Updates.

CSS is lost
By , for WP 4.3.1

Activating this plugin makes my CSS invisible to the site. Dashboard, even in default non-csss shows the HTTPS plugin as a set of weird symbols. Simply doesn't work for me. I am using networked WP.
