Eric Mill’s Switch to HTTPS Now, For Free is excellent

I just read this little gem by Eric Mill, and decided to give it a try. Despite a CA problem with the latest version of Firefox, this went surprisingly well.

I was slightly disappointed that WordPress uses absolute addresses to it’s resources with an HTTP class. Should it not use relative paths for locally hosted content like images, and let user agents sort out whether or not to use SSL? I think so.

Probably there’s something to configure. When it annoys me enough, I’ll blog about it.

Whoop, and there it is. That was easy to at least get WordPress to use HTTPS.
