The SecureLinkFixer extension automatically rewrites URLs to HTTPS if the domain always requires HTTPS. It uses the Mozilla HSTS preload list for the list of domains.

The rewrite is done on-the-fly as pages are parsed. No edits to the wiki are made, and the page source retains the original URL.

Installation[edit]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called SecureLinkFixer in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'SecureLinkFixer' );
    
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Notes[edit]

The list of domains is updated weekly by a script in the slf Toolforge tool.
