This is one that I’m hoping readers might be able to help with. Because I do not have a clue.
What’s a trailing slash? It’s the / that may or may not appear at the end of the URL in the address bar above this page on your screen.
And I have a real problem with a trailing slash that Google so far hasn’t been able to solve. If you visit the URL http://www.earlymodernweb.org.uk/emn/index.php/, some very, very nasty things happen to the layout of the page. [Not any more, see update below.]
So WTFFF is going on? (It’s not a browser or PC v Mac issue.) Now, I can easily set up an autoredirect so anyone trying to go to /emn/index.php/ will just get sent to /emn/ – but I really want to know why this is happening so I can fix it properly.
Please help if you can…
Update: Have done the redirect, so no one can land on index.php/ any more. OK, I don’t know exactly why the layout breaks in the way it does, but I should have learnt long ago that using an address that ends “index.php/” is a kind of category error that’s probably just asking to break things. (And now I’m going to put Moll back up the top of the page because she’s much more interesting than this stuff.)
