I’ve recently had to set up some redirects using Laravel 4.2 that had a trailing slash… if you’ve ever had to do this on Laravel then you know it isn’t as straightforward as the rest of the framework is.
Normally when writing a redirect to a URL outside of my application but inside of my domain I’ll do this and it works fine:
When redirecting to a page that requires a trailing slash:
Laravel strips the trailing slash and just sends me to
example/page instead of
example/page/. I had even tried this:
Redirect::to('example/page' . '/', 301);
My solution is to use the following:
Redirect::to('example/page' . '\/', 301);
The solution isn’t very elegant but it gets the job done.
