API requests with a trailing forward slash

(This post was last modified: 07-15-2020, 08:47 AM by ogomez.)

I spent a lot of time trying to figure out why my routes were not working and found that I needed to exclude the trailing forward slash. Not sure if this is done intentional but just wanted to bring this up in case someone else encounters this issue.

PHP Code:

POST http://localhost/API/news/ will send you to the GET (http://localhost/API/news/view) route
POST http://localhost/API/news will work correctly

Even if I set my route with the trailing forward slash I still get routed to API\news::view. Any insight on this behavior appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Seems like a bug. Test it against the latest version on develop branch and if it still an issue open a report on GitHub.

I have encountered this as well. I don't remember exactly but I think from debugging the issue I came to the conclusion it was intentional. Unfortunately I don't have time to search for it now but I believe the code does this explicitly when encountering trailing slash.

I ran into the way back in a view path with a trailing slash the fix was to escape it \\

Not sure if that is what is happening here tho.

I just tested this on 4.0.4 and the issue still exists. I'll put in an issue on github.
