WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
problems with an ssl subdomain and preview (2 posts)

    Using WordPress 3.3.2 and 3.0.4 of the HTTPS plugin.

    Setting the ssl url to a subdomain works, however using the:
    - SSL host: https://sslblog.domain.com
    - Using Force SSL exclusively (Posts and pages without Force SSL enabled will be redirected to HTTP.)
    - Force SSL Administration - When this is checked, editing a page post will show the permalink as https://sslblog.domain.com... which is incorrect.
    - Also, when you go to preview a post, it will try and show https://blog.domain.com... which doesn't load and shows "You do not have permission to preview drafts.. Adding ssl to the url will display the preview.

    If I turn off Force SSL Administration and set the param define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true); in wp-config.php, the permalink url shows correctly, but the previews still do not work.

    I am using Cloudflare on http://blog.domain.com but not on https://sslblog.domain.com.

    Just wondering if there is a workaround for getting the previews to work in this configuration (other than adding ssl manually to the preview urls)

    I have the exact same problem using the most recent version of the plugin (3.3.6) and the only workaround seems to disable the plugin, sign into the dashboard, and then re-enable it. which is not very secure, obviously, and (to some extent) defeates the purpose of the plugin.

    Plugin also appears to be interfering with JetPack (for me, at least).
