Really Simple SSL 2.5.26

In Really Simple SSL 2.5.26 a few minor multisite issues were fixed.

  • When a multisite environment has a main site without SSL, the network SSL menu didn’t show. This is now fixed: the primary site can now be without SSL, and the network SSL menu will still show up.  Please note that you need to network activate the plugin to see this menu.
  • Really Simple SSL uses three filters, the admin_url, home_url and site_url filter, to prevent WordPress showing https URL’s for sites that do not have an SSL certificate. This can happen if your main site is SSL, but some subsites not. On a site with SSL, all links within the network would be shown with https. The functions that handle this, check if the URL should be http or https based on the blog_id. The blog_id is passed in empty on the current blog_id, while we previously wrongly assumed this to contain the current blog_id. This only causes an issue in some specific setups, so it took a while to track this down.
  • We added an encouragement to back a website.
