I have no idea how this happened, but the path to a typical page on my forum is:
And Googlebot is crawling URLs that look like this:
And my server is giving a 200 OK code for both URLs. I think this might be causing duplicate penalties but I have no idea why my server isn't returning an error. Do I fix this with htaccess?
Edit to add: I did find a slash at the end of the Board URL setup in the admin panel, and removed it. This may remove the double slash from this point forward, but now I need to stop Googlebot from doing it.
