#108 Plaintext Login Request

Next Release

Credit: AJ Dexter aj.dexter@gmail.com from IHackCharities.org

This one is more of a feature request, but also a problem.

When a user logs in the credentials are sent over the network plain text. Meaning someone on the same physical network as the user would be able to intercept the administrator username and password.

A helpful fix would be an option to require an SSL connection for the login page, or a redirect to SSL.

    This is a feature request. SSL is outside of the scope of this project. SPHP Blog has no way of knowing if SSL is enabled on the server or not, so that is what this setting would be for. For now I suggest adding an automatic redirect to the server configuration if needed.
