I've tried all the codes in the FAQ, and none work. I'm at a loss for what to do at this point.
I've added those codes to the .htaccess file (one at a time of course, and deleting each prior one after trying a new one), and I put them prior to all other coding as instructed. The .htaccess file was located in my forums directory. I didn't see one in the root directory of my site. Any suggestions?
I used some of the code to force the removal of www, and it seems to be working now. When you use www it forces a redirect to the main site, which is a wordpress blog. Does anyone see something wrong still?
If you are using friendly URL's then you will need to put it in the forum directory (the example they give).
Every directory can have it's own .htaccess in it to control access to it if running Apache.
