I was looking at the error log files today and noticed some users were getting 404 errors for URL's that I thought should have been working.

A long time ago I did the .htaccess hack for SEO reasons, for example;

RewriteRule ^corruption/$ /index.php?topic=corruption [NC,L]

But then I noticed today (by looking at the error logs) if the trailing / is not included, then the user gets the 404 error. So; this URL works;

http://www.panama-guide.com/corruption/

While this one does not;

http://www.panama-guide.com/corruption

My question - how can I make them both work?

RewriteRule ^corruption /index.php?topic=corruption [NC,L]


Assuming you don't have any other URLs that start with "corruption".

Nope, none. The only difference is the trailing backslash...

Yeah, thanks, that did it. Now I have to make the same change for all of the rest of the topics and categories.
