@pasamio

Thanks very much for this plugin. For those like me who are using SH404SEF there will be no need to install it because SH404SEF already has a 301 redirect www/non-www feature (Option).

@all

In addition to this Canonicalization from Joomla, I would like to point that for those who are using Google Sitemap they should set their Preferred domain (www or non-www) in their Google Webmaster Account.

I applied this and it seemed to work great, but then I realized it messed up my Virtuemart Shopping cart in IE. I can no longer add to cart. When I disable the plugin, the cart works.

If I want to do this in the .htaccess file directly, what is the code please? I cannot seem to get it right.

I found and added this code to my .htaccess page (using my own site name of course) But it still breaks the VirtueMart functions

########## Begin - Redirecting non-www request to www
#
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mysitee.com [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.mysite.com/$1 [L,R=301]
#
########## End - Redirecting non-www request to www

OK, never mind, I fixed it. Changing the code in the .htaccess page works great if you also change the livesite code in the config php. As for Virtuemart, be sure that the site in the admin page also has the exact same url as the redirect and the config file.

Everything works beautifully now.

Oh and my best guess as to how to fix this is to go in through an FTP and delete the plugin from the plugin directory.
