My London wiki of the last 2000 years

I have taken advice from google, who say I have too many sites. I have therefore moved a host of my London wiki and London street directories onto just one site – i.e. London18.co.uk

This also includes early Roman history of London as I am building it slowly, etc.

I have made clever usage of site redirects to enable my content not to get lost, and here is a copy of my .htaccess file which may be of use to other web builders, it does exactly what I need it to do:

RewriteEngine on

order deny,allow deny from all allow from all
order deny,allow deny from all

AuthName pubshistory.com
IndexIgnore .htaccess /.?? *~ *# /HEADER /README /_vti
ErrorDocument 404 https://pubshistory.com/404.shtml

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

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^/?(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [R,L]

Redirect 301 /London1843 http://london18.co.uk/London1843
Redirect 301 /streets http://london18.co.uk/streets

I hope someone finds this of use.

It should be interesting to see how long this site takes to get in the top ten for search for London street directory
