I like to think I'm of at least average intelligence. Then I come across simple things I should be doing to make my site better, try to do them, and fail.
people can't access my site if they don't put the www. in the address bar. I thought I fixed that a long time ago. I never type them in on my browser and I'm fine, but apparently I didn't actually accomplish anything.
I didn't find a tutorial on this. Can someone point me to a link please?
Hey, Scott. It appears to be working okay for me. Have you set up a CNAME for your site? It looks like you do.
using my personal url is fine, but only if I have the www in front.
I do have a CNAME, could I have screwed up there?
Some browsers automatically try www if the www-less version doesn't work and vice versa. Scott, it seems like you don't have an A Record for your domain, just a CNAME for www. You should just be able to add an A Record.
I did all that and it worked, thanks. I also got the following message today from a member (who brought this to my attention last week).
Is he right about this, and if so, what the hell do I do?
have I opened a can of worms here? I thought this was a simple redirect.
