Unlike most WordPress websites, our client’s install is setup to not include trailing slashes for all URLs.
The RankMath plugin creates multiple sitemaps. The post sitemap is correctly configured, no trailing slash is added to the end of the URL.
All of the other sitemaps – pages, attorneys, and locations – have URLs with a trailing slash, thus creating a 301 redirect.
The ticket ‘Incorrect trailing slash included in sitemap URLs’ is closed to new replies.
