Ensure that a single trailing slash is always added to the URL.

Only GET and HEAD requests are redirected, excluding URLS that contain a file extension or query parameter. Detected ajax requests are also ignored.

  • is not redirected

  • Silverstripe ^4.0 || ^ 5.0

For Silverstripe 3, please refer to the Silverstripe3 branch.

Installation and configuration

composer require axllent/silverstripe-trailing-slash
  • Run ?flush=1


By default it will ignore any admin/ & dev/ URLs, as well as all ajax requests. It also only acts on $_GET requests as not to interfere with any posted data, and ignores any URL containing an extension (eg: /contact.html) or query parameter.

You can create additional "ignore_paths" by creating a yaml config (eg: app/_config/trailing-slash.yml):

    - 'events'
    - 'my/other/path'

These paths are relative to the base URL (/), so events will not match /page/events, but will match /events-2020.

Please note that paths do not typically contain a trailing slash unless it is only underlying URLs you wish to redirect. Wildcards etc are not supported in the syntax.
