Removing "index" from URL when workflow navigates to index page

Right now, when a workflow function runs that sends a user back to the index page (/) the URL appends /index. This seems like the incorrect behavior, adding unnecessary length to the URL and makes the address less readable for some people. For instance, if I am on the home page with debugger on: www.myapp.com/?debug_mode=true and link from any other page back to the index page it becomes www.myapp.com/index/?debug_mode=true – the same is true if the debugger is off. My home page has a data type assigned to it www.myapp.com/datatype-uniqueid and when people are redirected back to the home page it becomes www.myapp.com/index/datatype-uniqueid

For any other page it makes since to append to the URL because that’s how the internet works, but I can’t say I’ve ever experienced the home page being located at /index or requiring the mentioning of the word /index in order to load the root home page.

We have some logic to prevent this from happening, so can you file a bug report?

Will do. Thank you.
