Anyway to remove the trailing "/" when using sub-folders? (6 posts)

    I have the network all set up and running fine. By problem is with the trailing "/" when using the sub-folder option.

    For some reason you can't go to
    you have to go to

    I know it might seem trivial but not using the "/" keeps redirecting to the root. I am hoping this can be sorted within the .htaccess file or a setting somewhere. I have played with the settings on the super-admin side of things to no avail.

    Usually that's a sign that you've installed wp/wpmu into a subdirectory or as an addon domain on a CPanel box. Is that what you've done? If so, that's not recommended as you're now seeing.

    More specific details about what your current server environment would be a plus.

    My install was in its own folder until a few days ago. I moved it all to root in order to use the network feature. The move was interesting but seemed to be up and running fine once I figured out my permalinks were were making it act a little wonky.

    The install used to be in the http://www.sitename.com/blog folder. I tried to set up the network feature when 3.0 dropped and realized that I would need to move my whole install in order to get it to work. Does the /blog folder need to be empty now? That would seem like a weird problem but Ive seen stranger things.

    I am not sure what other info would be useful other than the site itself.
    you can see one of the pages here

    Thanks for the reply and let me know if any other info would be helpful.

  4. If there's a physical /blog folder on the server that you;re *not* using any more, then yeah. nuke it.

    Figured it out.


    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\..+$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/$
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.the-bunker.net/$1/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

    to my .htaccess file to reroute the /whatsits to /whatsits/
    working great!

    Thanks for all the help gang! I <3 this community ;D
