Redirect to SSL

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

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.

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

      Maybe you’d like it to be triggered by a user event, there’s never only 1 right way to do something

    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);

    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')
