- This extension requires registration to download.
The Joomla! Global Configuration allows you to configure SSL, but if a visitor enters a Joomla! page through non-HTTPS, this visitor is not automatically redirected. Also you can't enable SSL for just some pages, while all other pages are served through regular HTTP.
While the Apache htaccess file can be configured to contain RewriteRules for this, it is much more complicated and error-prawn. This is the main reason why the YireoTM SSL Redirect plugin was developed.
Joomla native SSL options don't work well with cache and can make your visitors in trouble due to self signed ssl (css lost). This plugin give me stable solution with mandatory ssl access to backend and mandatory non-ssl access to frontend with correct redirect.
I thought which joomla had this capacity, BUT only for all web and I need only some pages. And I found this plugin. I download it , install it and in 5 minuts I have a ssl worked in my store.
You can specify which components/urls should be forced to use https and which ones should not. An absolutely time saver (!) and perfect for people who do not want to mess around in the htaccess file.
I literally just selected a few random pages, pressed save then tested to see if it worked. It worked without any issues that quick!
I have great respect for people who offer not only a great product but one that is free. Thank you so much!
Paired with akeebabackup admin tools this plugin makes .htaccess woes a thing of the past!
