extra slash after leaving comment causes 404 (9 posts)

    I just realized that after leaving comment there's an extra slash added to the end of the title.

    So you get this 404 page:
    http://www.navigadget.com/index.php/2006/11/21/car-trek-400s//comment-page-1#comment-408146
    Instead of getting this page:
    http://www.navigadget.com/index.php/2006/11/21/car-trek-400s/comment-page-1#comment-408146

    I'm not sure since when I had this problem but most likely after upgrading to 2.7.

    Can anyone help?

    Have you remembered to recode your comments.php for WordPress 2.7?

    Wow. I must've been out of the loop. What does recoding comments.php involve?

    So I didn't quite 'recode' myself but went ahead downloaded a WP 2.7 capable version of comments.php from the same guy who made my theme. I still get the double slashes problem.

    Where should I be looking for this problem?

    I've been googling about this for an hour now but no luck. I also have the same problem for "Older Comments" link when it paginates.
    All the way at the bottom of this page for example:

    Still no solution to the extra slash problem. However if you turn off pagination problem goes away. Make sure Settings > Discussion Settings > Break Comments into pages option is not checked.

    OMG, thanks for posting that tip about the break comments! I had this problem too and that fix it for now. Phew!

    Interesting because I've been having this problem, too.

    The pagination is an interesting solution but I'm not sure why it works....I had it set at "50" before and I only had 24 comments on this page yet it still returned a blank screen (just the background color) every time a comment was added.
