    Redirect Unsecure Form URL to secure one when SSL is enabled

    I also would like a redirect to https feature.  Any updates on this?

    Just to repeat my last post on the other thread, unfortunately, we do not have this functionality yet, but there's an alternative or workaround that you can use, if you are registered on a web hosting service, you can setup a URL forwarding, this is usually offered by web hosting companies, let's say you have an old website URL and you like to redirect users to the new website URL, every time they visit the old one.

    For now, I will forward this as a feature request, unfortunately, I can't give an exact date to when this will be implemented or if it will be considered, but rest assure that the developers are already aware of this request. We will update you on this thread when we hear any news.

    Kind regards.

    I second this request. A checkbox somewhere to redirect users to a secure page would be awesome!

    Try this in the body of your html document, through static page or CMS: 

     <script>$( document ).ready(function() {

       if(document.URL.indexOf("https://URL") >= 0){

    window.location.href = "http://URL" rel="nofollow noopener";

    Thank you for the workaround. But that is for static HTML / PHP pages, not possible in CMS.

    It depends on the CMS. Our CMS uses a WYSIWYG page editor. I can drop that script into the Source view and save. Works like a charm!
