Stack Exchange Q&A site proposal: Joomla

For some reason this question (from Oct 2010) has more recently been deleted but was still available on stackprinter.com. I had the accepted answer and was looking high and low for it to use as reference on another question.

comment How to display “Not Found” instead of automatic redirecting?
"WordPress tries to guess the URL" - Really?! "canonical url redirection" - This sounds possible, but why would the original language page bet set as the canonical? This sounds like a WordPress issue. It should be possible to override this in .htaccess, however, I think it is better resolved in WordPress itself. (?)

comment How to display “Not Found” instead of automatic redirecting?
If the request is already being "redirected automatically" then there must be some code in place (maybe in your CMS?) that is performing the redirect - this is not default behaviour. Removing this "redirection" should result in the default 404.

@Martijn: That does not appear to be the question. Related: webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/70952/…

comment Rewrite root folders to a php file and exclude some folders
Thanks for the feedback. Just to add, if you use a relative path substitution in the RewriteRule directive (ie. index.php) you should specify a RewriteBase directive, otherwise results could be unpredictable on different servers, or break if the code was moved to another folder. Alternatively, specify a root-relative (or absolute) path.

comment Old domain, new site on Shopify - no more SSL, but SSL URL is stuck in visitors history
You will only be able to forward HTTPS to HTTP (in htaccess) if your site accepts requests on HTTPS, which it doesn't. I imagine it's not just repeat visitors that have the URL in their history, but also search engines that have indexed the HTTPS URLs (unless you preemptively set up a redirect before removing the old SSL)? I guess you'll need to follow the same procedure as for changing domains (except without the redirection unfortunately), inform Google in GWT and similar for the other search engines.

comment redirect the site IP address to the domain name
When you access your site by IP address, do you actually get to your website? That is not the case for me. (In fact I get a virus/malware warning!)
