Incorrect home link

I've noticed that Twenty Twenty-Three Theme does not add a trailing / onto the Home page link when used in a sub-directory. Could also be happening in a top level situation although I've not tested. -instead of-

This cause a 301 redirect and slows down page load.

Not a big deal but then again, the fix is quick and easy.

Hi! Thank you for the report.

Are you able to add more details about how to reproduce this issue?
I am unsure of if by "home page link" you mean the link in the WordPress admin > General settings WordPress Address (URL) or Site Address (URL), or if you meant a link used in one of the blocks?

Like the site title, custom logo, or the navigation block Home link inner block?

<p class="wp-block-site-title"><a href="" target="_self" rel="home" aria-current="page">Domain Website</a></p>

Yes, this link could be considered as WordPress Address (URL) or Site Address (URL) as found in General Settings. This is the only such link being used in the header. Not using tagline or logo.

And now that I'm also seeing target="_self" I have to wonder why that would be needed? URL busting?

Have now confirmed same situation when top-level dir. is used.

<p class="wp-block-site-title"><a href="" target="_self" rel="home" aria-current="page"></a></p>

I don't think that this is a theme issue, and it is not specific to bundled themes, nor to the site title block.

get_home_url() does not add trailing slashes.

If your site has unexpected trailing slashes, you may want to first check if you are using custom permalinks that adds slashes.

If your sites redirects are unexpected, they may be related to any redirection plugins you may have installed, but also related to your server configuration.
