  • Resolved webreality

    (@webreality)


    Discovered a minor-bug when using author pages in safari. If the pages are accessed without a trailing slash in the URL, Safari produces an “improper redirect” error.

    ie: /author/pagename

    This can be resolved by adding the following into the .htaccess file:
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(.*)/$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /$1/ [L,R=301]

    Hence 301 redirecting any page without a trailing slash to the correct permalink.
