www and trailing slash, in register page's url

Reported by: khoallaby Owned by:

Component: Core Keywords:


User can't get to the Register page if they use an odd combination of the www prefix for a domain, and whether or not it has a trailing slash (at the end of the url). They get redirected to the login page instead under the test cases shown below.

The login page url you land on is something like -- wp-login.php? -- suggesting that it got redirected along the way

Desired effect should be that all variations (w/ and w/o www prefix, and trailing slash) of the register page should go to... the register page

WP/site url set to "" - good - good - bad (forwards to wp-login.php good

WP/site url set to "" - bad (forwards to wp-login.php - good - good good

This appears to be a WordPress and server configuration issue, and not a BuddyPress one.

You need to ensure that trailing slashes are added to URLs on your server.

If you're using Apache, check your .htaccess file. If you're using nginx, check your .conf file to ensure that you have a correct configuration. Check the WordPress support forums for more info.
