Support » Plugin: Arconix FAQ » Htttps issues

  • Resolved bszen27


    First of all, love the plugin. After searching through the enormous number of FAQ plugins, I found Arconix to be the best.

    What I have noticed over the last few weeks is that the backend of my site was timing out frequently. At first I thought it was the upgrade to WP 3.6, but after a rollback, 3.5.2 resulted in the same issues. I also tested out all the plugins and played with various options, but couldn’t figure out the cause. It turns out that Arconix fits the same timeline for when the issues started occurring.

    My hunch now is that Arconix is somehow conflicting with the enable SSL feature in Better WP Security. It seems that when I remove all SSL protection from logins and the Admin section, that Arconix works fine. But when I enable SSL in the backend, Arconix seems to time out every once in awhile while after trying to Submit or stall when a FAQ post is autosaving.

    So basically… is there anyway that something within the plugin could be conflicting with the enable SSL feature of Better WP Security?

    Thanks for your time.

    Thank you for your kind words,

    The only possible way I could think of where my plugin could cause a conflict is through the external library I’m using to create the meta box on the FAQ page.

    To confirm this, would you be able to try using v1.1.1 of my plugin? You can download it here:

    Delete the existing version plugin first (your data will remain). Then, from the admin screen, go to Plugins -> Add New and then click the “Upload” link above the search box.

    I think I was too quick with my conclusions. I now have turned off SSL and Arconix is still randomly timing out on posts. I can’t seem to determine why though.

    Maybe jumping the gun again. It appears that the problem is also for posting in general. WordPress seems to hang when “Saving Draft…”, so trying to click anything on the screen results in a timeout of the site. Wish I knew a way to deal with this.

    I did some more digging on this and it turns out that GoDaddy hosting only allows 6 or less website actions in a minute before blocking out the user. Therefore, as you stated, there is no issue with your plugin. Sorry for the inconvenience.
