    Friendly URLs not working on the Home page only Link to this post

    Hi all

    OK I have installed on WAMP, XAMPP and a standalone Apache server using the .zip file and composer. I have come across the same problem with all installations and let me be clear its more an irritation than anything else.

    OK mod_rewrite installed and working.

    Contents of the .htaccess file
    <Files *.ss>
       Order deny,allow
       Deny from all
       Allow from

    <Files web.config>
       Order deny,allow
       Deny from all

    # This denies access to all yml files, since developers might include sensitive
    # information in them. See the docs for work-arounds to serve some yaml files
    <Files *.yml>
       Order allow,deny
       Deny from all

    ErrorDocument 404 /assets/error-404.html
    ErrorDocument 500 /assets/error-500.html

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
       RewriteEngine On
       RewriteBase '/ss3/'
       RewriteRule ^vendor(/|$) - [F,L,NC]
       RewriteRule silverstripe-cache(/|$) - [F,L,NC]
       RewriteRule composer\.(json|lock) - [F,L,NC]
       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.php$
       RewriteRule .* framework/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

    If I navigate to http://localhost/ss3/about-us/ it works no problem, however as soon as I click on the home page all the links include the index.php in the URL EG: http://localhost/ss3/index.php/about-us/

    Now if I click the link, go to that page and then remove the index.php the friendly URLs continue as normal.

    Is there anyway to fix this, has someone come across this before?

    Thanks in advance
