Redirect to SSL

window.location = "https://" + window.location.hostname + window.location.pathname + window.location.search;

You might wanna test if window.location.href doesn't start with "https" before doing that, so you don't redirect unless you have to.

  1. Why would use JS instead of PHP? Or .htaccess?

  2. This is what I was using before, although Chris’s way is far better

    window.location = window.location.href.substr(0,4) + “s” + window.location.href.substr(4,250);

  3. Don’t forget about location.hash!

    You also can use

    window.location.protocol = "https:"

    var addy = window.location.href;
    if (addy.indexOf('http:') === 0) {
        window.location.href = addy.replace(/^http/, 'https')
    }

    try

    
      window.location = window.location.protocol +'//'+ GetUrl('/home.html');

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

```
<script>
  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";
  }
</script>
```
