Redirection from login to login/
« on: April 21, 2012, 11:21:59 AM »
I am trying to get my links redirecting from http://www.jamsite.co.uk/login to http://www.jamsite.co.uk/login/

I noticed when users go to the link without / it was failing

I found this site : http://www.htaccessredirect.net/index.php and tried using the .htaccess as follows 

RedirectMatch 301 http://www.jamsite.co.uk/login(.*) http://www.jamsite.co.uk/login//$1 - but this didnt work

I tried a few others but it just put my site in a loop  ::)

It happens on the following pages (might be more)
www.jamsite.co.uk/login
www.jamsite.co.uk/signup
www.jamsite.co.uk/newest
www.jamsite.co.uk/links

If there is an easier way than using htaccess then thats fine this is just something I came across

I'm not really sure what you're trying to do.. could you explain more?

It looks to me that you want to redirect a url to the same exact url... in that case, yes it will put it in a loop.

sure

this is with SEO links

what it was I noticed if i tried to go to the login page without the / on the end it would come up with a page not found error so all i wanted to do was to make sure if you go to login or login/ you would go to the same page - i didnt want to loose out on hits/members because they managed to click on a link without / on the end

Example:
Link works : http://www.jamsite.co.uk/login/
Link Doesnt work: http://www.jamsite.co.uk/login

Try this:

RewriteRule ^([^/]*)[/]??$ /index.php?action=$1 [L]

Hi Adam just through id post to say I got this working from a tutorial on that 9lessons website you sent me for the facebook login code.

just in case someone else would like this add these 2 lines to your .htaccess file

RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ index.php?action=$1
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)/$ index.php?action=$1
