AWCoding- Restrict SSL (https)
Version 1.0.0
Release Date: 15th September 2010

Software Provided and coded by AWCoding

What Software Is:
Have you ever wanted to restrict SSL access to certain usergroups and allow them to turn it on and off. Well this is the software for you. You can restrict access to usergroups from using SSL. You can allow access for others who then can turn it on and off in user settings. This will force SSL on all pages of the site until they turn it off and prevents users from using SSL without permission too.

Interesting. I have recently had something similar coded.

Does this redirect the users with ssl access to https?
How does this handle internal links that are in posts? And navigation links? Are they rewritten or are members forwarded to http with every link they click?
Does this work with addons like photopost, LDM, etc?
How does this handle vbulletins css, avatars, albums and similar content? Such files are stored in one location. Either in http or https. Which means that they are missing on the other installation.

Yes, on all pages on your site.

This does not effect external links. If the link directs to another place on your site say a profile or another thread anything internal it will force change it to https. This is ON the fly not a re-write of links.

Should work for anything internal calling vbulletin core. I have not tested though but should work just fine.

Most people mirror the other site so matters not that they are not on https. So I am not sure how you have yours setup. Seems more of a SSL setup thing as working 100% for past 3 years on my site and others. Tested on a board with over 1 million posts and 300k users.
Just try the mod out it is only a simple XML and single bit permissions file. If not what you need uninstall. This is a very particular mod for certain sites. You can even use your other mod with this one as it is open to use as long as you reference. So if you have a URL re-writer mod to https or http you can integrate it into this software using if they are allowed to so on.

Also vbulletin itself is ssl safe all links so shouldn't need a url re-writer unless another mod is not SSL safe. If that is the case need to edit the mod from putting full URL's.

This mod does not allow members to log in through SSL. i.e. those members who have SSL permissions, first have to log in through http to get to https.
Please add this function. i.e. forward guests to a ssl login page if they are on https.

This mod shows a white page to users on ssl, and then after a second or two, it forwards them to the correct page. This is very annoying to the user. Especially since my users are paying for this. (Subscription System)
Please resolve this.
