Helps EE make friends with HTTPS

If you’re fed up with the crossed out browser’s https (padlock) indicator this extension is for you!

If a user visits all your internal links (ie stylesheet, javascript links, even control panel and forms) will be amended to use https as well so as not to break the protocol (and to keep the padlock indicator nice and green).

Tested on EE v2.1.3 & EE v2.3

Inspired by this Feisty Goat Blog post.

Do NOT use this add-on without backing up all your data and files. I had believed any issues to have been fixed, but like @Bryan, I had to reinstall. Not good.

Perfect!  Exactly what I needed to get an ecommerce site to look the way it should on SSL connection, took two seconds to set up.  Thank you!

I have used this now on 3-4 of my ecommerce sites. It really makes life easier. Have you not trouble. I see no reason this extension could not be used safely.

Causes a fatal error in EE2.2 had to revert to a backup of my Database + Core Files and reinstall EE to fix the problem.
