[issue] Section always pointing to home page.. Can't change!

This is some really weird stuff.

www.mysite.com/p

This URL always shows the homepage.. I even deleted the section to test and instead of 404, it still goes back to home. I cleaned my cache, restarted, repaired my DB tables … For some strange reason this url is stuck and there is nothing I can do about it.. Looking at my htaccess doesnt reveal anything either.. I’m at a total loss here

Any ideas?

Edit: URL removed at clients request..

Re: [issue] Section always pointing to home page.. Can't change!

For clarification purposes, here is my htaccess file:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
 RewriteEngine On
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
 RewriteRule ^(.+) - [PT,L]

 RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php
</IfModule>

Interesting update.

Apparently zeroes have the same problem as P

www.site.com/0

takes me to home page..

I already have a working “1” directory, but

www.site.com/2

3,4,5,6,7,8,9

all give me 404s like they are supposed to,

This is some bizarre shit!

0 is because we’re using PHP’s empty() function, which interprets 0 as the same as an empty string.

p is because of some unused(?) code that looks like it was intended for clean gallery image URLs.

thanks for clearing that up zem..thought I was going crazy!

Is there any way to hack the “p” problem out?

Would be a great help :)

Any way at all??? Can you at least tell me where that gallery function resides?

Sorry to be persistent, but if this doesnt work out I’ll have to edit a whole bunch of documents and links by hand to reflect the URL change…. a few days worth of work!

Any clue would be muchly appreciated.

Hi Ace of Dubs,

maybe you can make a simple URL rewriting/redirection (using .htaccess) from everything that links to /p/ to your renamed section.

Ops!
Me neither! Let’s ask our friend Google.

Check this:
http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/htaccess7.shtml
http://www.ssi-developer.net/htaccess/redirecting.shtml

And this (look for the HTAccesible free software):
http://www.tlhouse.co.uk/pc_software.shtml

Or, of course, be patient and wait until zem or Mary or any of the freaky fellas here comes up with the magical words.

Re: [issue] Section always pointing to home page.. Can't change!

After tinkering a bit I have come to the conclusion that htaccess is not capable of overriding the core behavior of textpattern.

IOW,

Zem, Mary, Freaks… Save meeeeeeee!!!!
