Please can you tell me if there is anything in this plugin that can’t be achieved by using element hooks? it’s been suggested I should install it by namecheap but I don’t want to randomly add more plugins since I have already experienced weird behaviour in some cases. Thanks a lot for your help.

Sorry I’m not familiar with that plugin.
Hooks elements is pretty straight forward – it allows you to add whatever code you want into the hook specific.
If you have more specific questions then I can definitely let you know if it’s achievable with hooks elements or not 🙂February 13, 2020 at 2:04 am #1163789Michael
The person at namecheap (domain name/host provider) suggested that I needed to insert code (included at the bottom of the post) into the header in order to workaround an inability to set a 301 redirect, and they told me that it was only achievable with that plugin. I don’t believe it is. I also don’t believe that the code they suggest is the right way to go either.
I tested url variations here to see where 301 redirects would need to be set up:
The only variation that seemingly needed one was https://www.reclaimdesign.org which throws a 200:
HTTP/2 200 date: Wed, 12 Feb 2020 18:59:58 GMT content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8 content-length: 89661 vary: Accept-Encoding x-ua-compatible: IE=edge link: ; rel="https://api.w.org/" link: ; rel=shortlink x-frame-options: SAMEORIGIN x-content-type-options: nosniff x-xss-protection: 1; mode=block cache-control: public referrer-policy: strict-origin-when-cross-origin x-cacheable: YES age: 1356 x-cache: HIT accept-ranges: bytes
They told me the only way to do this was to add this to the header using that plugin:
This does not seem like a solution at all, just stripping the www? Anyway, if you are able to give me any pointers or shed any light that would be much appreciated. I can’t see the wood for the trees. Was having an online live chat to and fro with namecheap for some 5 hours yesterday and didn’t really get anywhere, which is a bit demoralizing.
Thanks for your help.

Thanks David – I thought as much. Namescheap weren’t having a bar of it though, so I thought I’d better check here. I appreciate the help.February 13, 2020 at 8:07 am #1164260
