    I set up a website for a musician friend who is using three different domains, due to her long Gaelic name. Below WP 2.7, two of the domains forwarded automatically to the primary one I set in the options page.

    Now with 2.7, they don’t forward and all three domains work as they are which could be bad for search engine rankings which are really needed as she is releasing her first solo project.

    Can anyone help me get that redirection working again??

    That redirection did not change in 2.7, it should still forward to the primary domain as you’d expect.

    Did anything else change? Any odd .htaccess rules you’re using? What permalink style is set?

    There’s nothing weird in my .htaccess, just the usual:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    The permalink setting is Month and name.

    Could there be anything I could add to .htaccess to fix it?

    Thanks so much for the quick reply!
