Really Simple SSL 2.5.17 beta release

2.5.17 is in beta, and can be tested! Please test this new version and let us know your experiences!

Some multisite changes have been added:

  • The home_url and site_url on multisite are now checked if they should return a http or https url when SSL is enabled on a per site basis. As WordPress returns https when the current site is loaded over https, this could cause issues when links to non https sites were rendered.
  • To prevent any confusion about the network menu on multisite, a notice is added that there will be no network menu when Really Simple SSL is activated per site.
  • The dismissal of the multisite SSL activated notice did not work properly, this has been fixed.
  • The wpmu_new_blog hook is now used so a new site will be activated as SSL when network wide is activated.

For single site installs, two changes:

  • For JetPack users we limited the fix that sets JetPack to listen on port 80 to be used only on reverse proxy / load balanced servers. Normally this should be the only situation in which this fix is needed.
  • A constant has been added in case you don’t want the wp_rest_api to be forced over SSL.
