WordPress Plugin: Add or Remove Www

The WordPress plugin Add or Remove Www seeks to solve a common problem: preventing redirects from a www- version to a non-www version of a site — or vice-versa.

Add or Remove Www lets you easily configure your WordPress site to always (or never) use the www. subdomain in all links of the posts and pages.

It’s common that you’ll create a content link or include an image, linking to http://YourSiteNameHereForExample.com/imageExample.jpg — but your server then redirects that to http://www.YourSiteNameHereForExample.com/imageExample.jpg . That adds in an extra server request and delay to the user.

Instead of going through every image and link, one by one, making sure they’re all consistent, Add or Remove Www changes the links.

Note: the version 1.0 does NOT change all the previously existing URLs, it affects all the content and image URLs that are saved/modified after saving activating the plugin and choosing the suitable option.

We plan on adding more options to be edited — if you have any other suggestions, please let us know! You can contact us via https://www.wpsos.io.

The installation and use is very straightforward. You should:

1. Upload the folder `add-or-remove-www` to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
3. From the ‘Settings’ menu, there should be a new option, called ‘Add Or Remove Www’

As of version 1.0, you can choose between two options: using the URLs with or without www. The option affects all the post and page URLs, including image URLs.
