Yireo SSL Redirection Plugin

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
The SSL Redirect plugin is able to redirect non-secure HTTP-pages to secure HTTPS-pages, and back again. Which pages need to be served through SSL and which not, can be configured through plugin parameters: You can select manually Joomla! Menu-Items to which SSL should be applied, or you can choose Joomla! components (like the user-component) to which it should be applied, or you can add custom URLs in a textarea. The plugin takes care of the rest.

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.

This extention was exactly what I was looking for. I needed to enforce SSL on a product signup page. This wqas regardless of any link followed from and article or menu etc.

Yireo SSL redirect allowed me to simply select the menu item AND enter the URL in the custom field and voila! SSL redirect no matter how users try to access the page, ensuring their security. I've now implented this for other pages too.

I think this is a must have for any site that has forms, signups, product purchasing etc.

Well done guys!

Solved my https problems instantly, incredible. On the other hand one can only wonder why Joomla needs a third party plugin to handle the most basic things.

AWESOME PLUGIN!!!!! Was having problems with redirects to SSL to certain pages and could get no help from host. Saw the reviews and tried this. Literally was up and running in 5 clicks. I removed the htaccess redirect that host had me setup, then clicked on the pages I wanted SSL on, and...DONE!

I have self signed SSL certificate on site and wanted backend to be accessed with SSL while frontend without.

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.

Wish everything was this easy.

I was having the same problems other mentioned, trying to mix non-SSL and SSL on my website.

I love finding extensions that just plain work, no issues at all. Install, enable, select your SSL pages and DONE.

Thank you so much.

This afternoon I needed configure some pages of one of my stores to SSL.
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.

This is absolutely a very very good plugin! The parameters of the plugin are clear and easy to set up. This plugin is not only easy to set up but it also works :-).
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 had so many wrong answers and sometimes no answers in my quest to figure out how to use the SSL on only select pages. After finally finding this extension, I installed it and it works within just a few minutes!

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!

While the menu listbox is a bit small, this plugin is straight and to the point. Simply install and then enable the plugin. Just remember to play around with the options on the right side to ensure it operates to your liking. Great job! I'm going to donate!

Not only was I surprised when I was able to download this plugin without paying for it (I am donating), I implemented it with ease comparable to that of "breathing". Thanks for a great plugin.

Paired with akeebabackup admin tools this plugin makes .htaccess woes a thing of the past!
