    I got error of writing SSL redirect to my htaccess but even when i go and input manually it still says it and even is gone when i go back in to see if still in the file. Help please

    If you do not enable the option “stop editing htaccess file” in the SSL settings, and the plugin cannot determine the correct redirect, it will remove the redirect.

    Here are some more detailed instructions how to insert the htaccess redirect.

    If you have any problems with this, let me know.

    Did you clear any caching plugins, and caching in your browser?

    I can’t check your site, I’m blocked by sitelock.

    Yes, I can see your site now, but I get too many redirects. Did you use these lines?

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} !https
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

    If that doesn’t work, I’d remove the htaccess redirect and enable the javascript redirect in the settings. Then I can check your site for mixed content.

    Looks good now. I don’t see any mixed content on your site. There is a warning about a parse blocking cross origin script that could cause issues on some browsers, this link is the cause:

    Thank you so much. I do have one last one…bluehosts says i have to buy a separate ssl certificate to use with our domain does nothing more than redirect to our main domain at

    right now…if anyone types it in their browser it gives a privacy warning before going to our regular site…is there any other way around this other than buying another cert just for a redirect?

    Last question i promise 😉

    Glad to help! What I use in these cases is a simple redirect in the .htaccess before all other stuff, which redirects to the https version of your primary domain. This way, the redirect takes place before the SSL redirect, so no certificate is needed.

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
      RewriteEngine On
      RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [OR]
      RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^
      RewriteRule (.*)$ [R=301,L]
