Verve SSL – A WordPress Plugin

I just wrote my first WordPress plugin called Verve SSL. It is a SSL plugin for WordPress login and administration. You can read more about it and download it at the plugin page here.

WordPress SSL Administration and Login

I wanted to configure my WordPress blog so that it would use SSL for the WordPress login and for the Administration Dashboard.  I found plugins that would achieve this for me but it would not redirect back to HTTP when not on the login page or the administration dashboard.

To accomplish this I wrote a script that checks the location.pathname to see if it matches the regular expression “.*wp-.*”. This way it will only find a match if on the login page or the administration dashboard. I then created the next script to use if you browse the site while logged in. It changed the protocol to HTTPS, I made it all work by putting the PHP script in the wp-config.php that checks if logged in and then calls the scripts.

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
var protocol = location.protocol;

var hostname = location.hostname;

var pathname = location.pathname;

var href = location.href;

var wpAdminMatch = location.pathname.match(".*wp-.*");

if (protocol == "http:" && pathname == wpAdminMatch) { protocol = "https:"; location.replace(protocol + "//" + hostname + pathname) }

else if (protocol == "https:" && pathname != wpAdminMatch) { protocol = "http:"; location.replace(protocol + "//" + hostname + pathname) };
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
var protocol = location.protocol;
var hostname = location.hostname;
var pathname = location.pathname;
var href = location.href;
if (protocol == "http:" ) { protocol = "https:"; location.replace(protocol + "//" + hostname + pathname) } else { };
</script>

$current_user = wp_get_current_user();
$Path=$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
$URI='http://www.kevinverver.com'.$Path;
$feed_url ='http://www.kevinverver.com/blog/feed/';
$feed_secure_url ='https://www.kevinverver.com/blog/feed/';
if (0 == $current_user->ID && $URI != $feed_url && $URI != $feed_secure_url) {
    echo '<script type="text/javascript" src="/blog/sslcheck.js"></script>';
} 
else if ($URI != $feed_url && $URI != $feed_secure_url) {
     echo '<script type="text/javascript" src="/blog/ssllogin.js"></script>';
}

HTTP to HTTPS Javascript Redirect

I host this blog on Godaddy, and I installed a SSL certificate but could not find a way to automatically redirect the user to HTTPS, without having access to IIS or upgrading to IIS 7.  So I wrote this script that works great for me.

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">

var protocol = location.protocol;

var hostname = location.hostname;

var pathname = location.pathname;

if (protocol == "http:")

{ protocol = "https:";
location.replace(protocol + "//" + hostname + pathname); };

</script>

This code does exactly what I wanted by replacing an HTTP with HTTPS if found.  I put this code in my default document and it worked great for me.
