Homepage redirects www, but blog redirects to non-www

My site is and I have it redirecting to the www version. Here is my .htaccess code:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.stadriemblems\.com$
RewriteRule (.*)$1 [R=301,L]

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} index.html
RewriteRule .* [R=301,L]

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/order\.html
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/cgi-bin/order\.cgi
RewriteRule (.*) http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

Open in new window

But my blog seems to be forcing the www off the URL. Here is the .htaccess of my Wordpress blog:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /blog/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L]

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
RewriteRule (.*) http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

Open in new window

I don't know much about reading .htaccess code; I just copy and paste examples. Am I inadvertently redirecting my blog to the non-www?

I want everything to have the www so Google doesn't think my blog is a different site.

Thanks, torakeshb. I don't think that applies to me. If it does, I don't understand how.

Sound like a wordpress setting not something wrong with your .htaccess file.
Go into your wordpress admin and check the site url
in Settings: General:
WordPress address (URL) - should be
Site address (URL) - should be the same
