Modern webpages offer SSL. Joomla can be configured to use SSL - so everything seems alright. However, this does not mean that all your secure pages are actually kept secure. This plugin forces what is actually required: HTTPS or HTTP. If a page that is actually supposed to load under HTTPS is actually loaded under HTTP, this plugin automatically redirects to HTTPS - or vice versa.


  • Make sure to implement SSL correctly
  • Redirect HTTPS to HTTP or vice versa


  • SSL selection based on components, articles, URLs and more
  • Exceptions based on URLs and components
  • Advanced selection options

Getting started

  • Install this plugin in the Extension Manager
  • Configure plugin settings in the Plugin Manager
  • Enable the plugin when SSL is ready


The Joomla! Global Configuration allows you to configure SSL, but if a visitor enters a Joomla! page through non-HTTPS, this visitor is not automatically redirected. Also you can't enable SSL for just some pages, while all other pages are served through regular HTTP.

While the Apache htaccess file can be configured to contain RewriteRules for this, it is much more complicated and error-prawn. This is the main reason why the Yireo SSL Redirect plugin was developed.

With Joomla 3, the Global Configuration contains a setting Enforce SSL which allows you to enforce HTTPS upon your entire site. If you want to use SSL for all your pages, our plugin is not needed - you can simply use this core setting. If you want to implement SSL only partially, our plugin offers the solution though.
