Odd "Older Entries" link problem
|Reported by:||jamesisin||Owned by:|
You can find an in depth discussion of the issue here:
In short, at the bottom of the main pages are links for Older/Newer posts which should look something like this:
However, I have discovered a defect in how these links are being created by WP. All other links generated by WP appear to be unaffected and function as expected.
Here is the scenario.
As you can see from the example above, the WP installation URL includes two capital letters (I and W). This is true of the container and the server is set to ignore case so all is well. However, if we substitute the lowercase letters thus:
the resulting links generated by WP become:
Clearly WP is adding in a superfluous folder hierarchy (and the unnecessary index.php file specification). This breaks the link. (The index.php does not effect the matter, but I include it because it is superfluous.) If one removes the additional inkwell (either case) the URL functions as expected.
No other link created by WP within the site is thus effected (or at least none I could find). There must be something about the code which creates these two (Older/Newer) links which is causing this problem.
I have done quite a bit of testing to ensure that the problem was not being caused by something else. I have disabled all plugins, for instance, to no avail.
I am happy to continue testing if that will be useful to you. Please let me know how I can assist.
