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.

This is working in the last version of wp?

Outdated. Better solutions are available.

Used this plugin for a while but it's run its course. Auto-redirecting to HTTPS is no longer reliable and certain elements still try to load as HTTP. But this is to be expected for a plugin last updated in 2012.

Luckily a few new plugins are now available that not only do everything this one does, but do it more reliably. I like "Really Easy SSL". Works flawlessly on the 3 websites I've tested it on so far. Give it a try.

Normally I wouldn't pitch another plugin here but the author has likely abandoned the plugin for the foreseeable future and an HTTPS plugin is something you want to keep up to date. Hopefully this helps.

Works great!

Does just what it says it does.

Gets rid of the yellow padlock/warning sign

If you're going to implement SSL into your WordPress site, you can't go past this plugin. It was recommended by my hosting provider (Namecheap) and it works perfectly.

Don't do it!

Do not install this, at least not until updated!

Amazing, it changes everything inside the code to https

It even fixes Contactform-7 :-)
Regarding older browsers it would make sense having an option not to force SSL, but instead autofix everything if the site is called at port 443.

Works great

This is the only plugin that I could find that turned got rid of the yellow padlock. Some images were uploaded via HTTP. This plugin forces the entire site to be HTTPS when you add / in the settings. Thank you to the author for updating this to work again.

Despite not being updated in some time, it works great

This plugin continues to work perfectly, though I was glad to see that the developer is back at work on an update. I appreciate his dedication to this plugin.

Works Great On WordPress 4.2.2

Great plugin that gets the job done with no insecure errors.

I found that also changing my sites urls to https in general setting works the best. Especially using Yoast SEO to default my sitemaps to https. Otherwise sitemaps are http and force https does not work.

I also use this code snippet in wp-config to force wp-admin to https:

define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);
if ($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO'] == 'https')

Also this mod works great with this plugin. Make your WordPress site use protocol relative urls.

Quite useful for making a post or page accessible by standard http protocol. I use it for my webcams that do not support tls encryption.
