    So typically I will set up my PBNs with a global 404 to redirect all the old pages juice to the homepage.

    However, something I have never done is redirect the non-www to the www (or vice versa depending on where you built the homepage on)

    My question is, does a global 404 redirect plugin achieve this? Or does wordpress by default do this? Or does this have to be done via .htaccess?

    Wordpress does it automatically, if you want to do it manually, open your htaccess and enter:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]

    Common sense would lead me to agree. However, using a 404 global also from a common sense angle would lead me to think thats a big red flag. Same with linking a single pbn site to more than one money site hosted on the same server. However, these are the norms for PBNs.

    Why would I want to do it manually if it does it automatically?

    How simple would this have been to test yourself. Just saying...

    Yea thats my error, because I never use anything else I feel as its almost automatically implied.

    However, I was under the impression WP doesnt do it. Or is this something new in the more recent versions?

    Nope not a recent addition, you can see it under: Settings > General

    Where it says Wordpress url.

    So whenever you type in www.url.com / url.com it will redirect to whichever one you have chosen there, even sub pages.

    That is with a route install, never tried it if WP is installed in a sub directory of a url.
