Support » Fixing WordPress » URL Redirect Loop from to—multisite/subdirectory IIS7

  • All our blogs are of URL pattern . If someone requests one of these blogs with a URL pattern that omits the http://www., it results in a too many redirects browser error. Our “home” url in wp_options does indeed specify the www.

    Our complete web.config file is pasted below. Note that the first rule, the “Add WWW prefix,” does absolutely nothing as far as I can tell.

    This isn’t a web.config I wrote, I’m not really a WP programmer, and I’ve had a devil of a time trying to search the web for what would be a good web.config for my particular setup, so I feel like I’m just flailing blindly. For like a week. I would be enormously grateful for troubleshooting help. Thank you.
