Getting rid of the trailing slash

Getting rid of the trailing slash was created by savethefrogs
Hi,
I have no need for the trailing slash, such as in:
www.savethefrogs2.com/events/

I have SEFAdvance and Admin Tools. Is there a way to tell Joomla not to display that slash, as it seems to serve no purpose.
Thanks, Kerry

Hi Kerry,

SEF Advance add that trailing slash automatically. Certainly I cannot say there is a purpose or not by keeping it, however removing them at this point will damage your SEO.

The reason, for Google these are two different URLs. The difference is the trailing slash:
http://www.savethefrogs2.com/events/
http://www.savethefrogs2.com/events

Hopes this helps

Originally having or not having a trailing slash in a browsers URL caused problems with web browsers so that it was important that this was included where required if not in many cases the browser would hang or take ages in retrieving the required data. (In configuration files like those that are used by Apache it can make a lot of difference to the operation.) Now days browsers are more intelligent. For slightly more detail have a look here .
