What to put at end of url?

Post by seoace » Mon Jan 14, 2013 10:59 am

I am creating my first Joomla site and I have just removed the index.php from my url's so they look like www.example.com.au/page. My question is shouldn't there be a slash at the end or can I leave them as is?

You can do that if you want that whenever you give any link on your site at that time if you don't want to give a slash at the start of the url.
For example, whenever you will give any new hyperlink on your site at that time you need to give the URL like: /path1/path2/path3/file1.html
But, if you give the / after your site's URL in that case you just need to give the new hyperlinks on your site as: path1/path2/path3/file1.html

Doesn't matter much, you can change the configuration anytime in your .htaccess file.
