Trailing Slash Issue In Joomla 5.1 Canonical

Post by ImperialHawk » Wed Apr 17, 2024 6:00 pm

Hello Support Forum,

I am happy to say that I've successfully updated to Joomla 5.1 on my website. I can see from the release notes that there are some SEO items for the SEF plugin that have been added. ... -here.html

Specifically this one about the trailing slash.

This works great! However, I am noticing a strange issue with the homepage canonical now. It is still generating a URL to have a trailing slash even though all of the URLs are supposed to not have the trailing slash. For example. If in the SEF plugin you set "enforce URLS without trailing slash" that works for the URLs in subfolders, but not for the domain. So in the browser you will see but for the canconical you will see ""

Is there a way to fix this? Can this be a bug? If so, how do I report this?

Thank you,
