    FYI one patch was recently made that improves this, because PHP-FPM was being “restarted” instead of “reloaded” which is now fixed:

    The plugin blacklist is frustrating for some people.

    The fact that LittleBizzy/Slickstack is going from a free speech champion (it even says so in the footer here) to an overarching control freak who is now planning to override the blacklist feature. What is the point in adding a plugin blacklist if you are just going to ignore it?

    Look, I get the hatred that Yoast / WP SEO gets, I really do. But I have heavily customized my hooks around it and I cannot ditch it now. I chose not to add it to my plugin blacklist when I install Slickstack, and that should be enough.

    Now I login and see that you’re going to disable it anyway for me from July 2023… WTF. If you do, I will try to comment out that part of your code, and if I cannot then I will switch to another provider.

    The thing about free speech is it goes both ways. Please stop trying to force me to change plugins because you have a vendetta against it. The constant nagging about donating and writing a review on Capterra is bad enough, but I ignored it because I get why you do it. But please, stop trying to enforce your views on me.

    This isn’t true, the plugin blacklist has been optional for a very long time and still is optional

    Look, I get the hatred that Yoast / WP SEO gets, I really do. But I have heavily customized my hooks around it and I cannot ditch it now.

    Also not true, you can change to a better SEO approach if you wanted to, nothing is impossible

    The constant nagging about donating and writing a review on Capterra is bad enough

    So, have you donated yet? Don’t leave us hanging! 🙃

    FYI Yoast Premium is blacklisted by default, but not the free Yoast:

    Request a WordPress plugin be removed from blacklist

    I think @Edward is talking about the warning message in WP Admin for plugins listed on the “Future Blacklist” section. Yoast has been on that list for a few years now, but it’s never actually be blacklisted, the purpose is trying to get users to change to a better SEO plugin that doesn’t have spam and spyware and poor coding.

    Yes, this worried me too. So to confirm, is slickstack going to completely remove / blacklist Yoast in July?

    If it’s been on the blacklist for a while then why is this message showing only now?

    I am using Yoast (free) and have just built a few things that tie into their API. Please give us an option to continue using it?!

    Yoast is not being force deleted, it’s on the “future” blacklist which means it maybe blacklisted in the future for sites who have the plugin blacklist enabled… if you have more questions about this please start a new thread.

    Anyone who uses Rank Math or Yoast SEO I mean, sorry but you kind of expose yourself as being sort of clueless about best practice lol

    SlickStack tries to teach you better ways and you scream and cry.

    Docs do suck tbh

    and we are still waiting on the search bar for Docs 😂

    Okay folks… the docs are now searchable:

    https://slickstack.io/docs

    Articles are still outdated, that will be addressed soon, but baby steps! In case anyone is interested, this docs portal and search bar is supported natively in our free HoverCraft theme for WordPress, if you want to copy it.

    Hi there,

    I was hoping to handle my own SSL with a reverse proxy (similar to Cloudflare but not the same).

    I want to SKIP and never do lets-encrypt.

    I set “SSL_TYPE” to “openssl” and then I set “INTERVAL_SS_ENCRYPT_CERTBOT” to “never”

    but it still tries to make a lets encrypt cert. All I want is a local self-signed cert on the actual web server. I will handle SSL separately.

    Is there another setting I should turn off to allow this?

    Thanks!
