View Full Version : trailing slash problem

I am not so sure about this.
I get very different results when using the trailing / or not.

For example
http://localhost:9000/Fishbone
Gets me a page which I suspect is the Fishbone content but formatted as
the default skin?

http://localhost:9000/Gordon
Loads the page but not the embedded Flash program.

Same behaviour in ie as well & after clearing the cache.

On the bright side it's not case sensitive...

Not anymore. :)

The 5.4 release included a fix to make the trailing slash not required
for skins, so:

http://yourslimserver:9000/Handheld
http://yourslimserver:9000/Handheld/
and even
http://yourslimserver:9000/handHELD

should all work.

Ah, good find, James. That clearly wasn't tested thoroughly.

Will see that it's fixed.
