Wordpress referring urls back to itself with /null on the end, resulting in 404.

GamesNET2 used Ask the Experts™
Hi there, I've got a Wordpress install (3.3.2) and Shopp plugin (2.1) - I'm getting loads of url's, apparently referred from the site address that are resulting in 404 errors.

For example,



They all say the referrer is example.com

I've tried to circumvent this by setting up an .htaccess regex to get rid of null, which works but not from the site URL. Does anyone have any idea where this is coming from? or alternatively, how can i adapt my regex to redirect example.com/null back to example.com

I'm more worried about how this is happening though.... any ideas?

Hi GamesNet2,

Have you tried the following to correct ... Database User issue. I am referring specifically to the post by Samuel B. - moderator.

Also, Wordpress.org forums mentioned the plugin as a possible cause. Check out this link as well ... Plugin Issue

I'm not sure if these will help, but worth a shot, especially since you know you also installed the  Shopp plugin at the same time.
