XF 1.5 Weird issue with route filter


Active member
Hey guys,

I have a weird problem with a route filter.
I created a page with the URL portion "join_community" and set up a route filter to replace "pages/join_community" with "join/community".
On another page I linked to "join/community", but when I click the link I get the message "You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action."
When I link directly to "pages/join_community" everything works as expected, but I don't like it as the browser displays this link in the bottom left corner when hovering :D

See this page: https://tactical-riot-gaming.de/join/
Click the right button and you'll get the error message. When you use the direct link below, everything works.

All other links work properly, but this one drives me crazy. I tried everything, I deleted the route filter, created a new one, I deleted the page and created a new one, I rebuilt master data and permissions are set correctly. Do you have any ideas?

Thanks in advance :)

What other route filters do you have?

Given the route filter you mentioned, technically speaking, the correct URL is join/community/ -- https://tactical-riot-gaming.de/join/community/ -- which works. This is the URL XF would generate. The trailing slash can be significant in some cases.

Thanks Mike, you are right! Never had that before, but it's working perfectly with the trailing slash :)
