Was using DM Force SSL but stopped working after config bootstrap edit. Installed and we’re back up + running. Nice work.

Needing to force many sites to HTTPS and sometimes HTTP, I decided to build this simple plugin, and use it. By adding the tag in my header include I can ensure that my entire site is SSL and any HTTP links will 301 redirect, working with my SEO. Or I can HTTPS only some pages, and HTTP the others.
