WordPress 3.2

All of our servers are WordPress 3.2 with their newly updated minimum requirements

What we have noticed is a couple of people who’ve already made the update have found themselves with blank screens for their blog pages! Generally they think it’s a problem with WordPress itself, but we’ve found it’s mostly due to incompatible themes and plugins.

There are two options:

  1. If it’s the theme that’s broken it’s probably worth changing themes or getting the current theme fixed.
  2. If it’s a plugin causing the problem, you could disable the plugin or wait before upgrading. Contact the developer of the plugin and find out if they intend to release an updated version.



Redirect from non-www to www

We’re often asked how to achieve this, whether it be to prevent duplicate content or force a site to use your SSL.

This is really easy to do, open up the .htaccess in the public_html folder of your site and add:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.your_domain.com$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.your_domain.com/$1 [R=301]

This will redirect any requests that don’t match the www version of your site to the www version. It will use a 301 Permanent redirect.
