#7185 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Trailing backslash shows first category

Description

When using a permalink structure that begins with '/%category%/', adding a trailing backslash to the blog url shows the category page with the lowest id. Examples:

http://www.example.com\ shows http://www.example.com/category/category-slug

It doesn't matter if the permalinks use a trailing slash or not.

So this has been fixed over the generations? (Blank Milestone, yet closed as fixed)

Yes, probably in 2.7: now it simply returns a 404.

Alright, I'm just going to call it a 2.7 fix then.
