Re: permalinks with trailing slash



If it makes you feel any better, wordpress doesn’t deal with it well either.

I have to trick it into enforcing trailing slashes like this:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
# RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !..+$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/$
RewriteRule (.*) $1/ [R=301,L,QSA]

and that doesn’t even work half the time depending on what other htaccess trickery I’ve got going on

But I notice if I have slugs turned on in bbpress, it will remove the trailing slash always. If I have slugs turned off, it won’t tolerate a trailing slash at all and will 404

I did manage to get the topmost rss feed to tolerate slash or not using this obvious mod

RewriteRule ^rss(/|)$ /forums/rss.php [L,QSA]

One thing that is important to do in bbpress vs how it’s typically done in wordpress, is not re-use/re-load the bbpress core engine if there is a redirect (which doubles the mysql calls) but to try to do it through htaccess
