Why the 301 redirects?

Just tested the loading speed of my forum with the Pingdom Website Speed Test. The loading time is excellent, but I only get a grade C in the “Avoid URL redirects” category. I’ve not set up any redirects, so this is something Discourse does by itself. Is it possible to eliminate these redirects?

What redirects are they referring to?

Did you provide an http url instead of https?


@Stephen I just provided the root domain, then Pingdom applied http instead of https. When I entered the full URL only one 302 redirect remained.

@codinghorror The last redirect turned out to be the redirect to the login page, which is fine. When I tested directly from the https login URL, it got a perfect score 100/100. Well done guys :+1:t3:
