Canonical tag for home pages missing trailing slash

  • Hi,

    When switching on RankMath the canonical tags for the home pages (its a multisite setup) change from ending with a trailing slash to ending without a trailing slash.

    This is causing issues, as the non-trailing slash URLs redirect to trailing slash, as per usual WordPress behavior.

    Without Rankmath installed the canonicals correctly end with a trailing slash, as they do when using other SEO plugins to.

  • Hi Pratik,

    I have updated the access to Sueradmin for the network now (its a multisite setup)


    I am experiencing some issues with my multisite setup too, essentially if I use “Strip Category Base” rank math strips the prevailing / between the category and the multisite sub directory

    For example

    With option off, link is:

    With option on, link becomes

    essentially / is missing between “UK” (multisite subdirectory) and “style” (category)

    This is gives 404 errors as does not exist.

    Anyway to fix this and strip the base category?

    Much appreciated!


    We’ve released an update yesterday addressing the canonical issue which you were facing. Please remove all the code which we had provided before and update the plugin to the latest version.

    For the category base issue, to avoid confusion can you please create a new support ticket? I checked it on the site you added in the Sensitive Data Section and it seems to be working fine.
