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.
I found this plugin and installed it in a flash and bang it work perfectly!
Thanks Yireo for this fantastic plugin!
This also resolved issues we were having with IE refusing to go back to non-SSL mode on pages after leaving secured pages. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
One Extra note on Custom pages. If you want to use this for your lost password page - make sure to list it as https in the URL you paste into the custom list.
This extension is absolutely beautiful and it works great for ssl redirection. It does exactly what it says!
I had 0 issues with it! :-)
Main problem was how to direct links+menu items to https, and back once you're under SSL - and this extension did it *flawlessly and easily* - just what every developer asks for...
So thanks for a great free extension!
I installed in seconds, configured in a few more and bingo-bango it works like a charm.
