Support » Theme: Miyazaki » Scrolling changes URL but new URL causes 404 error

  • Resolved sjbates



    I currently have my permalinks configured as:


    This is slightly different from the default as I have removed the ending /

    I have installed the script at and when you scroll down the page changes the URL. Instead of changing it to it changes it to which technically is invalid so if anyone copies the URL it turns into a 404 error.

    It seems the theme is expecting the URL to already end in /

    Would this be a bug as I’m sure I’m not the only person doing this as WordPress sayings nothing about / being mandatory?



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

    Hi Steve.

    >> WordPress sayings nothing about / being mandatory

    ‘/’ is mandatory. WordPress will not say anything about it as it is coding related and not a part of the documentation.

    WordPress creates tons of urls by suffixing the slug to the base url. It is pointless to check the base url every time if ‘/’ exists or not. Hence it is mandatory to have base url ending with a ‘/’ so that the new urls created are separated from the slug by a ‘/’.

    Hi @sjbates,

    I’ve updated the history functionality to handle permalinks without an ending slash.
