WordPress HTTPS is intended to be an all-in-one solution to using SSL on WordPress sites.
Worked straight out of the box, no issues. Few hard coded http: image URL's to fix then all done. Donation sent. Thanks!
I'm an IT consultant, web host, and part-time developer. I've worked with Apache for years. I figured that setting up my own revamped site to use a mix of secure and unsecure pages would be a snap. After all, it's just a few lines of url rewrites in .htaccess or in httpd-vhosts.conf, right?
WordPress fights this tooth and nail. I resisted installing a plugin for this, as it just seemed so dang simple. After several hours (no kidding) of seemingly endless frustration, I installed WordPress HTTPS and within minutes, I had the sensitive parts of my site forced to SSL.
It would have been great if the developers of WP-Client included this functionality in their Pro version, but they did not. In fact, they don't even mention it (and they should). Adding a simple url filter ("/portal/") forced all of my client portal pages to SSL. Checking the box to force SSL administration handled the back end, and finally, checking the box to force my contact page to SSL even set that for me, while leaving the public portions of the site outside SSL and more responsive to visitors.
I'd give the plugin a sixth star because it not only does exactly what it's supposed to do - it also fixed a problem I had with images not being loaded via https.
Absolutely love it. Simple. Works! That's all I ask from my plugins.
This need to be included in my blog. I love this plugin. My blog is now secure with this awesome plugin. Grab it guys...
Can't ask for much more than that.
I learned about this plugin from Diglabs which makes a plugin for Stripe payments.
It just works!
A great way to keep your logins secure without writing custom htaccess rules.
This needs to be part of the WP core. Excellent plugin, much needed.
