A quick solution is to use Javascript to add the /page into the url.

On the page where the problem is occuring, use the html widget.

2. Copy and paste the following code


How to debug

If you run into any problems, uncomment the line (remove the double forward slashes).

  // alert("test: "+oldUrl);

You can replace the +oldUrl variable with other variables to see what results appear.
