    Hi,

    When I visit my blog at http://www.xyz.com wordpress changes the address bar to http://xyz.com (losing the www.) - why does it do this? How can I stop it doing it? I know it makes no difference but would like to keep it anyway!

    Cheers

    Simon

    If I am not wrong WordPress (WP 2.2) does not do that, it maybe your host that does that.

    I think he's on Godaddy.com. I'm not sure if they do that redirecting automatically or not. I know Dreamhost.com does it. But yeah, it sounds more like a host issue than a WordPress issue. Unless you put special redirects in your .htaccess file? Good luck!

    hmm DH does not do it without you explicitly setting it.

    Hi folks,

    I am using wp2.2 and not with either of those two hosts. Very strange - any more ideas?

    Going back to your original question:

    If you visit Options -> General, what do you have specified for the two URL values? Do those values have the www or not?

    Hi HandySolo,

    Yep - checked that - they both have www. in

    I also checked my .htaccess and that's empty too :(
