SSL and login/redirects (2 posts)

    We have an issue with our FORCE SSL install of WPMU. When the system sends out email, like "go approve this comment" and the recipient clicks on the link, it is not an HTTP link. This non SSL link is passed to the login form in a get string like so: wp-login.php?redirect_to=

    As a result Wordpress throws an error on the login screen with a pink box that says "Login error: the username field is empty."

    What's the best way to handle these non-SSL links when they are passed around for login redirects? Is there a wp-login.php configuration change that needs to take place?

    I have a WPMU that I wanted entirely within the SSL.
    After reading, testing and trying both "Force SLL" and "Admin SSL" (even if this one was not tested for WPMU 2.8.6) plugins, we found that the best way to solve the problem was by editing the database without passing by the WPMU Admin interface.
    To force my navigation to keep the "https", we edited the value "<strong>Siteurl</strong>" and "<strong>Home</strong>" directly in the database.

    Hope this helps you.
