If you’ve been having any of the following problems at LGF:
* Login from the main page doesn’t work, but clicking through to an article page and logging in does.
* The “top rated links” area just spins and spins and doesn’t open, until you click through to another LGF page.
* The RSS feeds won’t display.
... we’ve finally managed to duplicate the symptoms, diagnose the problem, and eradicate the bug.
The solution was found on this page; a method of forcing all page requests to remove the “www.” prefix, by using mod_rewrite.
This should eliminate a constant source of annoyance for visitors, and a constant source of problem complaints for Stinky Beaumont.
