My WordPress in installed in a folder, https://example.com/folder/. I would like WP index page to get accessed by https://example.com/folder, however, WP 301 redirects it to https://example.com/folder/.

What do I need to do to get no trailing slash and no redirects when accessing https://example.com/folder?

  • From my testing, it appears as though WordPress is doing the redirect but only on the home page if it's a folder. I've tried disabling all plugins, changing themes, adjusting the Permalink, and even adding DirectorySlash Off | RewriteOptions AllowNoSlash to the .htaccess. Nothing works. Have you found a solution?

In your .htaccess file you could try this below the RewriteEngine On line

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ /$1 [L,R]

  • I've tried it before, doesn't work
