JSM's Force SSL / HTTPS — Simple, Fast, Effective, Good for SEO


A simple, fast and effective way to make sure that all your HTTP URLs get rewritten and redirected to SSL / HTTPS.

Simply activate the plugin and you’re done:

There are no plugin settings to adjust, and no changes are made to your WordPress configuration — simply activate or deactivate the plugin to enable / disable the filters and dynamic redirects.

Significantly different than most other plugins of this type (in a good way):

Other plugins use PHP’s output buffer to search and replace URLs within the webpage document. Using PHP’s output filter is error prone and much slower than hooking native WordPress filters in combination with permanent 301 redirects (which are considered best for SEO when moving from HTTP to HTTPS).

Checks for and honors proxy / load-balancing variables:



Your web server must be configured with an SSL certificate and able to handle HTTPS request. 😉

Other plugins to improve your social and search ranking!

  • The WPSSO Core plugin makes sure your content looks great on all social and search sites — no matter how URLs are crawled, shared, re-shared, posted, or embedded!

  • The WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup add-on for WPSSO Core offers Schema JSON-LD / Google Rich Results markup for Articles, Events, Local Business, Products, Recipes, Reviews and many more.

Spent on/off the last three days trying to get a WordPress website HSTS eligible which runs over the www sub domain and after constant messing about with umpteen configuration and https/www rewrites, nothing would work to pass HSTS preload checks for subdomains. Installed this plugin (handles all wildcard http >> https redirection), set the Strict-Transport-Security header in .htaccess and worked perfectly passing HSTS preload check for browser preload list submission. Life saver of a plugin!

I looked at a number of other plug-ins to amend images from http to https and even those with the highest number of good reviews were all complicated to handle as far as settings are concerned particularly for a novice. This plugin is so easy. You install it and activate it and when you look you see all conversions have taken place. There are no settings to mess with. What could be easier? OK so I did have one problem but I don't blame the plug-in. My site was showing mixed content. Despite all the images being https, a slider on the site had not reloaded the images. I simply removed the five images and reloaded them from the library for a perfect result. Thank you JSM - great plugin!
