What is the best method of dealing with the trailing slash issue?
My site has html pages and a wordpress blog.
The index page redirects to www.mysite.com, the html files have no slash but the blog has a slash. I can set the posts to have no slash but I can't see a way of stopping the parent /blog/ page from keeping the slash.
What's the best thing to do? and does it matter? I have found articles that say you should pick one method and stay consistent but they all seem to be a few years old.
I had planned to instate the slash for the homepage and leave the rest as it is but am I fixing something that isn't broken and creating confusion?
