How to enable https in all pages in WordPress

  1. In your admin area, go to Settings / General
  2. In “WordPress Address (URL)”, change the url to https
  3. In “Site Address (URL)”, change the url to https

That way you will force the medias to be uploaded in https and avoid a “mixed content” error message. 

If you run a Multisite WordPress install, go to Network Admin / Sites / Edit Site to edit the url address

How to enable https per page in WordPress

  1. Go in your admin area
  2. Plugins
  3. Add new
  4. Search for “iThemes”
  5. Install iTheme
A big advantage of the iThemes plugin is the pages which don’t have https enabled will be forced to http so your analytics statistics won’t be split up over 2 versions of the same page.
