Issue Overview

After spinning up Tide locally and navigating to /wp-admin, URLs for any links in the admin sidebar result in 404 errors.

Steps to Reproduce (for bugs)

  1. Create a local Tide install
  2. Navigate to http://tide.local/wp-admin (note the lack of trailing slash)
  3. Click on a sidebar link
  4. See the resulting 404 page

Expected Behavior

Links within wp-admin should not 404.


The solution is to ensure that when you navigate to wp-admin, you provide a trailing slash: http://tide.local/wp-admin/.

Options that we've discussed to fix this issue involve forcing nginx to add the trailing slash if not present, or hijacking the login process with PHP to add the trailing slash (as NGINX has proven difficult to wrangle).
