    Google Webmaster keeps reporting this crawl error for our website :

    /embed.js?pname=wordpress&pver=2.72

    Our WordPress blog is a subfolder called from our main website.

    If the above error was /blog/embed.js?pname=wordpress&pver=2.72, then no problem, I can redirect it using a WordPress redirect plugin

    But it is main-website/embed.js?pname=wordpress&pver=2.72

    and redirecting it in .htaccess doers not work.

    I just redirected the darn bad link, after finding out how, and it works.

    Below is the code for mine in .htaccess, just change the astrasuite to your own ...

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^astrasuite\.com$ [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.astrasuite\.com$
    RewriteRule ^embed\.js$ "http\:\/\/www\.astrasuite\.com\/" [R=301,L]

    Read somewhere that it is needed by Disqus, and they won't do anything about it

    p.s.

    Just read this :

    http://wassupblog.com/what-is-the-best-comment-system-for-wordpress-blogs/

    So today, I uninstalled Disqus, I think the default WordPress comment system is good enough, at least as presented by my theme (after revisiting it and doing some tiny mods on the text descriptions).

    So that's one less plugin too, which is good.
