Root Relative URLs
[resolved] current conflicts (6 posts)

    Just a general fyi.

    We tried to use this plugin and experimented with it on some sites.

    At first we had conflicts with custom post types, which seemed to mostly resolve with the release of WordPress 3.3 and Otto's rewritten url structure.

    The plugin also has issues w/ SSL redirects and goes into an infinite loop.

    Also, it has some sort of conflict with the Members plugin that doesn't allow you to update roles.

    I was hopeful it might be a good option for easing the switch between dev / live environments, but it seems every bug we run into goes back to this plugin. I'm sure it has potential, but it's too young still for production in my opinion.

    I also have run into the infinite looping redirects issue on custom post types, even on WP 3.3.1...

    Thanks for you input. I have had several reports of SSL redirect issues and custom post types but I have not been able to reproduce any of them. We have launched two sites that use SSL protocols and neither have these problems. And all of the sites we've launched with this plugin (about 12) make heavy use of custom post types, and again with no resulting issues.

    If you have any direction on steps to reproduce the problem I'd be glad to investigate and resolve the issue.

    Thanks,
    Marcus.

    @outlierdesign - can you try clicking save on the Admin > Settings > Permalinks page twice in a row and see if that solves your redirect issues? It worked for me, but I'm still trying to solve the problem without needing two consecutive saves.

    I have confirmed that this is due to a core wordpress bug. http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/21824

    The temporary work around is to update to version 1.5 and save your permalinks admin setting page twice.

    Version 1.7 solves the infinite redirect issue, but permalinks need to be saved twice according to several core WP developers to fix the permalinks of CPT's.
