Proper Proxy support for WordPress (4 posts)

    I've ran into a number of problems using WordPress because it doesn't support proxies.

    It breaks the dashboard and, I believe, outbound trackbacks and pings.

    Details of what I had to do to fix the dashboard

    Details of what I had to do to fix class-IXR.php

    It should be possible to configure a proxy server using the administration interface. It isn't possible to fix this via a plugin, I had to modify class-snoopy.php and class-IXR.php to support my host's proxy. In the case of class-IXR.php, it had no built-in support for proxies at all.

    Or, you could just use the latest version of WordPress (v2.0.3) where I believe it shouldn't be a problem as security has been switched to nonces. :)

    Okay, so I did upgrade to 2.0.3. I still have a problem with class-IXR.php and had to do the changes as I described in here.

    The dashboard on the other hand, worked out of the box so it doesn't hang. I have no idea if it's correctly getting data remotely.

    This morning, I logged into my WP and the dashboard took a while to load. It didn't crash but the content on it was now one day out of date.

    I did the changes as I described here and then went to the dashboard and it correctly updated all the data.

    These issues are not fixed in WP 2.0.3.
