#1543 closed defect (fixed)

Theme Directory is missing redirect with trailing slash

Reported by: zodiac1978 Owned by: dd32
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Theme Directory Keywords:


The Theme Directory is missing a redirect with a trailing slash at the end of the URL. So it is available with and without the trailing slash, which is bad for SEO (duplicate content), I think.

https://wordpress.org/themes and https://wordpress.org/themes/ are both working an none of them is redirecting to the other.

I think the first one (without trailing slash) should redirect to the last one (with trailing slash).

In 6498:

Theme Directory: Add a redirect for wordpress.org/themes to wordpress.org/themes/.
This would normally be handled by WordPress redirect_canonical() but we have that disabled on the Theme Directory.

Fixes #1543.
