    I would like to redirect non-www prefix pages to www prefix pages.

    However, I have to do this in vanilla forum which already has few redirect rules in htaccess.

    I have added the redirect code above it. I would like to know whether this is correct? It is working fine but I feel performance problem as the forum is loading really slow.

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /forum
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301]

    # Certain hosts may require the following line.
    # If vanilla is in a subfolder then you need to specify it after the /.
    # (ex. You put Vanilla in /forum so change the next line to: RewriteBase /forum)
    # RewriteBase /forum
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?p=$1 [QSA,L]

    Can anyone help me telling this is not standard or the better way of doing it.

    PS: The forum is not at the root but in folder named ‘forum’. At root there is already wordpress blog.
