W3 Total Cache
[resolved] http:// vs. http://www. redirect broken with "Page Cache" (5 posts)

    Hi @fredericktownes,

    I see that a few months ago this problem arose and was reported here. But I see at the end yall believed it to be fixed.

    Unfortunately, I can confirm that this problem has come back in the latest plugin version (or was never resolved).

    I'm running:

    WordPress 3.0.4
    All-in-One-SEO version
    BackupBuddy version 1.3.19
    Sociable for WordPress 3.0 version 5.13
    W3 Total Cache version

    My "WordPress Address (URL)" and "Site Address (URL)" settings are both set to "http://www.example.com"

    If someone visits http://example.com they are automatically redirected to http://www.example.com

    However, I've found a bug when I activate the "Page Cache" option on the W3TC "Performance" >> "General Settings" menu. (screenshot)

    When it is activated then suddenly the other http://example.com is no longer redirecting to http://www.example.com

    As you probably know, this creates problems for SEO purposes and for @font-face embedding with Firefox and IE9.

    I followed the work-around shown in the previous thread and it works as long as my code is at the top of the .htaccess file before the W3TC code.

    Do you have any thoughts? Or has anyone else reported this yet?

    Thanks a ton,

    Yes, it's a known issue and MUCH better handled in the next release.

    Not sure, but you can have it now, just grab the development version.
