How to make your WordPress always load SSL

By default your WordPress might not use SSL in the settings. In most cases, it takes a day or two for SSL to be active on your domain, so using the default non SSL URL will make it work sooner.

As SSL is working you will want to make sure WordPress is using it fully through-out the website. To do that you will need to follow these two steps shown below.
