I have a multisite where users can create sites on a sub domain structure. I have pro sites installed and I am in the process of setting up stripe to take the monthly payments.
Under the stripe payment gateway settings on pro sites there is a message "When in live mode Stripe recommends you have an SSL certificate setup for your main blog/site where the checkout form will be displayed." so i set up an SSL for my site, but here is my confusion/issues.
- I did not set up a wildcard SSL because I only need the SSL on my main blog, but when i have https:// before my domain and I go to my sub domain sites I get blocked and a notification that the site is not secure.
- The main site does not show https:// unless I type that in. I followed this tutorial to try and fix this ( http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-add-ssl-and-https-in-wordpress/ ) and it worked when I am in the /wp-admin dashbord but still will not show a https connection on the frontend unless I specify in the URL.
So the boiled down version of my question is, how do I get an https:// connection on my main site without interfering with any of my subdomain sites that do not have an SSL so that I can take payments through prosites on my main blog and leave sub sites http://?
Thank you in advance!
