  • You’re right. That’s quite annoying if you want capitals.

    You can’t seem to even change it, as WP converts it back to lower case (though it’s happy to list the page in mixed case in the manage pages listing.)

    I’d consider reporting it as a bug if noone comes back about it. I did a quick search of open tickets and didn’t find it.

    Actually, the question has two aspects:
    1. WP is using only lower case in the post/Page slugs – and the slugs are used for the nice permalinks.
    2. On a *nix server the file/folder names are case sensitive.

    You can discuss with the developers #1 – subscribe to one of the lists where they hang around.
    You can’t do anything about #2.

    I think there can be a method with your .htaccess file — to make redirects so that AnY CaSe pOIntS tO The UrL aS If iT WaS aLl lowercase… so regardless whatever is typed will go to the same permalink. I read about it one time… but didn’t implement it. I will look for the link.

    Maybe someone knows how?

    It would be a nice feature of WP’s default htaccess, if there is a way to do it

    Mrmist. Okay, good to know I am not the only one who is running into this.

    Will you please let me know if or when you do report this as a bug?

    I suppose it is really not that big of an issue, however, I have sent many URLS out thinking it didn’t matter about upper or lowercase, but now I know all of those need to be fix.

    Would just be nice to have that flexibility. 🙂

    Personally I use lower case URLs so I’m not bothered by it, the only reason that I would consider reporting it is because of the inconsistent behaviour within the WP system – it’ll give your page a capital letter in its name on the manage pages screen, but changes everything to lowercase behind the scenes.

    Okay. Well, I suppose it is something that we, or at least I can live with.

    Thanks a bunch.
