WP Fastest Cache
[resolved] .htaccess rewrites not passing $_POST array (4 posts)

    This is a very urgent request as form input is a key feature of our site. After debugging, we have found that when this plugin is Enabled, it is doing two additional redirects in the .htaccess rules and thus, the $_POST data is not preserved after the first redirect.

    What is the .htaccess modifications to either preserve the $_POST during these two additional redirects, or preferrably, prevent the plugin from doing the two additional redirects all together when there is $_POST input data?

    My site has both https (SSL) and non-SSL form input situations.

    It looks like that is the desired functionality, but there's a bug somewhere. I'm guessing it's just a .htaccess bug.

    Please advise as soon as possible.

    FOLLOW-UP:

    Okay, we found a solution, not ideal, but apparently, this plugin is not compatible with sites that don't have the root folder secured with SSL and do have a sub-page secured with SSL... Or at least, that's what it appears to be the case. (Appears to work fine for sites with no SSL)

    At any rate, we fixed the multiple redirects by simply making the whole site https. Like I said, not an idea solution because of about 2/10th of a second of SSL latency, but a trade-off by having cached pages load 3x faster.

    I'm surprised this hasn't come up with other users.

    A specific fix for this issue would be greatly appreciated... Namely, enhancements to the .htaccess mods so it doesn't do the redirects and drop the $_POST data when using a site that is partially secured with https (SSL).

    Thus, I'd like to keep this thread open until either a response or fix is offered.

    I couldn't understand the issue.

    Do you think that $_POST datas are cached?
