[resolved] Trailing Slash Warning? (5 posts)

    Why am I suddenly getting a trailing slash warning upon activating W3 Total Cache, and that I must use basic disk mode instead?

    Seriously? I remember when the WordPress gods deemed the trailing slash dated and no longer needed and specifically coded the CMS to redirect any trailing slash permalink to a non-trailing slash. I know because I had to hack my sitemap plugin back then so it'd remove the trailing slashes and prevent redirect problems. Thanks WordPress for that grief.

    But now apparently it's needed again if I want to use this cache plugin properly. Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.

    Well, glad we got that sorted out. What's next, I need to remove the www prefix so Google can find my site again?

    Update: Apparently this was a bug in W3 that I wasn't aware of, but it's not clear if the solution was to only use basic disk mode, or there is a fix in the works that would preclude the need to add a slash to our permalinks.

    I don't even know if it was existing or it had been squashed since then, because this is the first time I've ever seen such a warning. Reading the changelog it's mentioned as being fixed in 0.9.2 but I don't know what that means. Fixed as in, you must use basic disk mode or fixed as in it's all good now? Eeesh.

    That is fixed in the latest release.
