Slowed down my site to become un-visitable
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin slowed down my site more and more by the hour, until after 12 hours the website took 2-5 minutes to load. Even GoDaddy support had major issues loading the website. Once deactivated, the site loaded lightning fast again.

Works Great

Simple, easy, great solution. I originally built my site without SSL protection, so when I installed my certificate, the address bar was showing errors. It took me 5 minutes to search for, install, and activate this plugin to fix my problem. Thanks for the great work guys!

Literally a few clicks, and my checkout page is setup properly and served via SSL - so easy to use thanks a lot :)

This plugin has been very reliable, is simple to use and therefore I am very appreciative!

Thank you!

Ok but Had Some Issues
By , for WP 3.9.1

I used this plugin for the first site I installed SSL on. Worked perfectly with no issues at all. I installed it for two more websites and started to have problems. Now I have to have the admin SSL on or it doesn't work at all. And if I try to use the force exclusive then it breaks all my links on the website. I managed to fix it by just having HTTPS on the whole site. And for some reason the images are broken if the site isn't loaded with www. so I have to add a redirect in the htaccess.

I wish there were other plugins because this one seems to be causing me more issues the more I use it.

Works!

Awesome, this is just what I was looking for. Now I am not getting error messages that the site is not 100% secure, plus if a page is not specified to be SSL, it can be automatically redirected to a non-secured page, meaning it can be cached. Thanks!

Broke my embedded Google Maps

I spent quite a bit of time on it, no joy. Moving on.

The de-facto plugin for SSL on WordPress
By ,

I don't always recommend plugins, but when I do I recommend this one for SSL. If you want full control over their SSL on WordPress here you go.

works. thank you.

Easy to use.

Solved My Mixed Contents Error [Updated]
By , for WP 3.9

Since I've switched to HTTPS, I've been using Amazon Cloudfront to host my images as it's easy to change from http to https...although there isn't almost a significant improvement in performance, but it's easy for me to change http to https automatically rather than going page by page and changing those embedded images one at a time.

This plugin solved that issue and mixed content errors are gone now.

====UPDATE====

I would like to thank the creator of this plugin, and although it hasn't been updated since 2013, it does still works amazingly. Now that I fixed my mixed contents error, I've removed the plugin. However, it does not mean it's not working. It WORKS folks, but I have to let it go since I don't need it anymore.

Again, THANK YOU to the developer for having such a useful plugin. It may not have been updated because there is no need for an update. As the usual saying says... If it ain't broken, don't fix it.
