Display correct URL

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Just getting ready to launch now (hopefully on Monday), however, I have a bit of a problem. Not a problem really, more a niggle. How do I get my site to display www.mysite.com rather than just mysite.com?

 

I vaguely remember somebody answering this for someone ages ago when I first started, but thought to myself "I'll come back to that later" now I can't find it anywhere due to the fact that if you search for www or url or anything that might be relevant to my problem, the search result lists pretty much every topic ever discussed, for obvious reasons.

 

Any help please?

Try /includes/configure.php and /admin/includes/configure.php.

 

You can also add a rewrite rule in .htaccess to redirect to www.

I would also vote for using rewrite rules in your .htaccess file which is perfect for this sort of thing. A quick google brought this up:

Which may be of some use. Good luck with the launch!
