The "Disable Canonical URL Redirection" plugin for Wordpress will correct this, although anytime you hit the home button in wp. HTH, Rob -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Simon MacDonald Sent: Wednesday, March 10, 2010 7:30 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Page serving order Hi Folks, I'm building a wordpress site that I want to hide behind a index.html holding page. What's happening at the moment is that the holding page is being served even if I explicitly put index.php in the url: http://example.com http://example.com/ http://example.com/index.php all the above serve the index.html page. I changed the DirectoryIndex in the .htaccess to put index.php first in the list: DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm default.htm http://example.com then serves the index.php and http://example.com/index.html serves the index.html. I changed .htaccess again to: DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.htm default.htm And that only serves the index.html as in the first example above. I confess that .htaccess configuration ain't my strongest point. How do I get the index.php to serve if it's explicitly in the url and otherwise serve the index.html I feel I'm being dumb and missing something!
