WP-Piwik
SSL Issue (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I have a WordPress multisite installation at domain1.com. And I have Piwik set up at stats1.domain2.com (completely separate from the WordPress install). WP-Piwik is pointed to stats1.domain2.com.

    However, when anyone logs into my site securely, WP-Piwik also tries to access the stats server securely at https://stats1.domain2.com. Since there is not an SSL certificate there, this causes an SSL error and prevents the main site from loading securely.

    Is there a way to keep WP-Piwik from trying to reach the stats server securely?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    WP-Piwik just uses the configured URL to contact your stats server. So there shouldn't be any SSL connections if you enter a http-URL.

    I think you talk about the Piwik JS code. It always tries to use the protocol also used to open the current site. (So it avoids errors like "This secured page tries to load unsecured elements".)

    If you are really sure you want to disable this feature, you have to change your Piwik code. Maybe you can do this by a Piwik setting, otherwise you can add your Piwik code to wp_footer manually.
