Registration page – how to get SSL working?

  • SimpleOne


    I have an SSL certificate setup correctly on my site. The SSL (i.e., https) works successfully on the Login page. It also works (i.e., shows https) when I use wp-admin to navigate to my WordPress dashboard logged in as an admin user.

    However, I cannot seem to get https to appear for the Registration page. Why not?

    In my wp-config.php file I’ve currently got the following lines already added:

    define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);
    define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true); 

    I should add that I want https to occur only on the Login and the Registration pages for users. I don’t want the entire site to run over https (as that would slow things down).

    I’m running WP 3.8.1 and BP 1.9.1. Can someone please provide guidance on how I can get https to work on the Registration page?

    Also, for what it’s worth…

    When I hover over the Register link, I see the following URL:

    But upon clicking the Register link, the following ends up in my browser’s address bar:

    As your first question, this is not a BuddyPress problem, you should check out the WP Doc for more information on how to do this.

    For your second question, I believe it is redirecting from the WP login into the BP login page.



    @espellcaste, I had already read through that WP doc you referenced. That’s actually where I learned what lines of code to add to my wp-config.php file that I mentioned above.

    And yes, it is redirecting to the BP Registration page. That’s expected behavior since I have my BP settings that way. (I have some custom BP profile fields that I want users complete during registration.)

    I have posted my question here (as opposed to WP support) because it seems to me the issue may have something to do with how I have BP setup to interact with WP. And so I would think that someone else perhaps has encountered this same issue with BP and the Registration page.
