WP Force SSL & HTTPS SSL Redirect


WP Force SSL helps you redirect insecure HTTP traffic to secure HTTPS and fix SSL errors without touching any code. Activate Force SSL and everything will be set and SSL enabled. The entire site will move to HTTPS using your SSL certificate. It works with any SSL certificate. It can be free SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt or a paid SSL certificate.

How to add SSL & enable SSL? Most hosting companies support the free SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt, so login to your hosting panel and add SSL certificate. You’ll see a button labeled «Add SSL Certificate» or «Add Let’s Encrypt Certificate» and after that it’s 1 click to have the SSL enabled on your site with WP Force SSL. If that doesn’t work get WP Force SSL PRO and it’ll generate free SSL certificate for your site. And will regenerate SSL certificate every 90 days.

Access WP Force SSL settings via the main Settings menu -> WP Force SSL.

Yes, you do need an SSL certificate. If you don’t have one you can buy WP Force SSL PRO which will generate an SSL certificate for free.

After activating WP Force SSL, do I need to do anything else?

No, nothing. After activating WP Force SSL, the main option «redirect SSL» will already be active. What you can do is use our tests to make sure everything related to SSL is working.

Did nothing...my site is still locked.

I had a FREE SSL on my AWS hosted WP site. All it took was running a single line of code in Bitnami. The Bitnami code did not work as well for the WP Multisite. The 4 sites on the same Domaine could load with an SSL cert if you typed it the HTTPS, but if you just typed www, it was unsecured. Loading the free version resolved it.... The App shows me some warnings, upgrade to resolve, but everything seems to work.
