    I have a very weird issue. The page mysite/gistpens is 404 nothing found unless it is an uppercase G as in mysite/Gistpens then it works!

    I have worked with WordPress a lot since 2006 and have never seen this, case sensitive URL’s on any hosting environment / provider.
    I Know I could do a rewrite or do it with .htaccess but I have Not and shouldn’t have to.
    Your Gistpen plugin says to create a page named gistpens and I did I have deleted it and recreated it 2 times in disbelief.

    I created a page to test this at a site I was just starting to build while ago (for fun) and https://swsitedesign.com/Gistpens/ works while https://swsitedesign.com/gistpens/ does not.
    The WordPress slug is “gistpens as it should be, and the WordPress URL’s historically have always has been lowercase that I have seen.
    Maybe I am just too tired right now and overlooking the obvious, or else this is a very weird problem. I created another page and accessed it with both lower and uppercase URL with no problem so that led me to believe it is specific to your plugin, so I looked through the code to try to find where it sends the Gist data TO the gistpen page and see if I saw anything, (long shot I know) but there were a LOT of files in your plugin and I haven’t found that yet.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Update status resolved:
    I uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin and it works as expected now. The URL to the page is case insensitive as it should be ! I am still at a loss to explain that though… 🙂

    Bizarre. Maybe needed a flush of the rewrite rules? That happens on plugin activation.
