Support » Plugin: WP-Gistpen » gistpens page is 404 unless it begins with an uppercase G as in Gistpens!

  • Resolved stanwilliams


    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 works while 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]

    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.
