I'm guessing this is an infrastructure issue not an orchard issue since I can't repeat this locally or on a different DEV or PROD server but I still need an urgent solution to this:
anything that appears to post back to the server (like standard comments, contact page, deleting posts in the list of blog posts from the dashboard etc, will add an extra / after the domain:
It seems to happen regardless of whether I use the IP directly or the DNS name.
I might try a URL writter if I can't get this functional but any ideas or if people have seen this below I would love assistance.
Adding this code to the layout on that server produces just the IP but adding the same code on all my other servers produces the dns name as expected
