how to remove multiple slashes in URI with 'PREG' or 'HTACCESS'
site.com/edition/new/// -> site.com/edition/new/
using the plus symbol
+ in regex means the occurrence of one or more of the previous character. So we can add it in a preg_replace to replace the occurrence of one or more
/ by just one of them
$url = "site.com/edition/new///"; $newUrl = preg_replace('/(\/+)/','/',$url); // now it should be replace with the correct single forward slash echo $newUrl
