    Hi guys,

    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.

    Hi there,

    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 🙂

    Hi Leo,

    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:

    http://redirectcheck.com

    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:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    if ( document.domain.substring(0,4).toLowerCase() == 'www.' ) {
    window.location = document.URL.replace("//www.","//");
    }
    </script>

    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.

    Michael.

    Hi there,

    if you must use that code to get it to work then you can add it via a Hook Element and select the WP_Head hook.

    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.
