Brightspot CMS User Guide

URLs and trailing slashes


Brightspot retrieves assets using a permalink. For example, a visitor wants to view the URL http://example.com/menus, so Brightspot retrieves the asset whose permalink is menus.

URLs with a trailing slash can be ambiguous. If a visitor wants to view http://example.com/menus/, Brightspot can do one of the following:

Remove the trailing slash, and retrieve the asset at the permalink menus.

Retain the trailing slash, and retrieve the asset at the permalink menus/.

Additionally, if a visitor wants to view http://example.com/menus, Brightspot can add a trailing slash and retrieve the asset at the permalink menus.
