#19253 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

blogname is case sensitive for front page requests on multisite using subdirectories

I have a multisite install using subdirectories. When a request is made for the front page of the site using the correct case for the blogname, the front page is rendered. If the incorrect case is used, a wordpress 404 page is rendered (in twentyeleven it is the "This is embarrassing..." page). Expected behavior would be to see the front page.

As an example:
I have a blog called "testblog" at www.example.com.
A request for www.example.com/testblog/ renders the front page.
A request for www.example.com/TestBlog/ renders a 404 page.

Wordpress is rendering the 404 page in the correct blog though (as opposed to the root level or dashboard blog).

Upon examination, wordpress is attempting to render the "TestBlog" page from the "testblog" blog and since this page does not exist, it is rendering a 404.

To fix this, I added case insensitive matching to the home path regexp in the parse_request method of the WP object.

I have tested this patch using latest posts and a static page on the front.
