WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
Major SLow Down on SSL pages (4 posts)

    I'm running the latest version and the speed at which pages load that have the SSL turned on are so slow they really aren't usable. I've found older threads that mention a way to by-pass some checks but nothing on the newest version. Any idea how I can speed this process up?

    I've come up with a quick solution, albeit crude one.

    I modified the "wordpress-https.php" basically commenting out the curl function calls in the get_file_contents() function. I put the variable $content=true as it appears that this is returned if the https call goes through without errors.

    This effectively speeds everything up rather nicely.

    I'd like to note that this is a rather obnoxious feature. While I understand what the author is trying to accomplish the side-affect is terrible (slow).

    I just installed the plugin and am having the same issue. Can you help me by pasting in the code that you changed? Thanks!

    I just pushed out version 3.0 which may or may not fix the issues you were having. Please try updating and let me know if you need any help.

    I'd like to see if this issue is resolved for you. I have never been able to reproduce it.

    Sorry for the late response. I have not had time to support the plugin for a while now. Since I just pushed out 3.0, I'll be keeping an eye on the support forums to fix any bugs that arise.
