Improved support for NGINX, CloudFront and CloudFlare, 2.5.0 imminent!

As the 2.5.0 release date is getting closer (no, no date, that keeps me flexible but it’s days, not weeks) tension peaks. Testing has been finished on NGINX, Apache, and on loadbalanced setups.

The 2.5.0 release will be a big improvement. As of this release, it is possible to enable internal WordPress 301 redirects, which will be a great help for non-apache users, NGINX, IIS, etc. When you activate the plugin, it will automatically decide if it needs to turn it on or not.

The mixed content fixer is now also fixing escaped URL’s: sometimes you see a URL like this in your websource: http:\/\/www.domain.com. Well, that’s what escaped links look like, and it well… escaped the mixed content fixer until now 😉

But not anymore!

Some extra possible .htaccess rewrite rules were added as well, which should greatly improve success rate!

And, I’ve improved the curl request that gets the test page. Previously, once in a while a bad SSL certificate still slipped through. Though this might still be possible, I think I’ve reduced it greatly!

So 2.5.0 is imminent!

If you want to contribute by doing a testrun yourself, I would appreciate it very much. You can find the 2.5.0 version on GitHub:
