Support » Plugin: Plugin Organizer » upper case in url

  • Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for the plugin πŸ™‚

    I was just testing a page and typed in the page url in upper case. The page came up just fine, so I’m assuming my server is redirecting to the lower case url through some setting, nothing I even knew existed. BUT it seems that Plugin Organizer does not see this upper case spelling as the same page, and is therefore not following the plugin directions I set for that page in Plugin Organizer section of the WP admin for page.

    I hadn’t thought about case being important for url’s, but just visited Yoast’s site and it seems to also find the correct lower case page when you type the page url in upper case.

    It seems that if my page is actually loading with the upper case url, not going to a 404, it would be nice if Plugin Organizer would run the appropriate plugins that I directed it to for that page.

    How would I do that? What are your thoughts on that?

    Thanks a lot πŸ™‚

    WordPress works some magic on the backend to try to find the page you meant to visit. That is what you are seeing. For instance on my site. If you go to http://www.sterupdesign.com/blog/category/portfolio/ you get the portfolio category. If you go to http://www.sterupdesign.com/blog/CATEGORY/portfolio/ you get the Portfolio page. URLs are case sensitive. So I don’t think it’s a good idea to change everything to lowercase since you could theoretically have 2 different pages depending on what case you use.

    Thanks a lot Jeff!

    I do find myself typing my page urls with caps accidentally sometimes, my url’s are all lower case. Since WP works it’s magic and goes directly to the lower case url with no 404 issue, it would APPEAR to anyone visiting my pages if they did type in upper case as if they got to the working page. But then because of plugin organizer, the page shows all sorts of shortcodes or plugin effects are missing.

    It doesn’t sound like there’s a simple solution for this right? I guess I could setup filters if I really wanted to, right, like for mydomain.com/About or mydomain.com/ABOUT?

    But others than that, if someone capitalizes the url, Plugin Organizer will not know to enable plugins for that specific page…
