Buddypress on HTTPS SPDY Protocol Errors
By the usual process of elimination, I’ve nailed this issue down to Buddypress. Once you SSL your site (making sure to follow all the recommendations and changes to wp-config etc), every post action in WordPress will be met by a SPDY_PROTOCOL_ERROR page. Refresh page, post again, all good. It’s more of an annoyance than a show stopper, but visitors are unforgiving, so the drop off rate is badly impacted.
Based on my research, it seems to be related to relative / hard-coded url structures within the plugin that cause the malfunction. To reproduce it, go to home page, wait 5 secs for all the scripts to complete, and login using the widget. Boom > SPDY_PROTOCOL_ERROR (SSL Cert Lock in URL goes (!) ). Refresh, SSL lock goes green, et voila, login. It happens on most things though, so it must be a mixed content thing with Buddypress.
The Remove HTTP plugin hadsn’t helped unfortunately either.
