I have 2 sites hosted by Hostgator. Neither redirects or changes to the .htaccess file allowed a redirect to work. Was able to talk to a serious techie and he gave valuable info. First, both sites are from different developers, multithemes and nick cates. They both tested with the same problem. The following is directly from the techie. He said “tested apache on execution of redirect. It works fine. However, upon reaching the website, a redirection loop starts. Possibly something in the stylesheet or theme is causing a redirect loop. The issue is coding versus Apache. To restate, somewhere in the file is something stating what the url should be and it’s over riding the apache redirect”.
Since the issue is with 2 different themes from 2 different developers, any RW techies out there with any ideas how to fix???
