The page returned by the Searchform (<form method="get" id="searchform" action="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>">) drops www. from the site URL, i.e., it is not redirected to the canonical URL. This occurred in version 2.3.3 also.

It can be seen in action at: http://www.wind-watch.org/alerts/. Or in 2.3.3 at http://www.wind-watch.org/news/.

  • Milestone set to 2.6

The canonical redirect ignores search requests.

However, The URL output by bloginfo('url') should be correct.

So, If you were to goto site.com/?s=test, it would *not* redirect to www.site.com/?s=test

However, WordPress should not generate a URL without the www. (and as far as i can tell, Doesnt)

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing as invalid as the URL produced by WordPress should be correct according to the URL settings (Which the canonical redirection is based off)
