Joomla Force SSL?

Joomla Force SSL, a good features or bad features? Only the user can determine it. But for me, it just another features that give trouble for user. Some Joomla amateur think once enable it, the site will auto have SSL. The truth is it bring lot of issue cause once you enable it in admin panel, you are unable to revert it back cause you are unable to access to admin panel.

So you need to go to configuration.php and edit it from

var $force_ssl = ‘1’;

to

var $force_ssl = ‘0’;

Then, you able to access again.

Thanks god, Joomla, please remove this features, we do not need that.
