Fixed shared for future reference….
This issue was down to me missing the need for a required change to system/application/config/config.lc when using .htaccess to hide the index.lc page from the URIs structure.
This setting is clearly documented within the config.lc file, in the 'Index file'... "If you are using mod_rewrite to remove the page set this variable so that it is blank." i.e. 'put empty into gConfig["indexPage”]' ). The config.lc file is also mentioned specifically in the user guide section on ‘revIgniter URIs: Removing the index.lc file’ https://revigniter.com/userGuide/general/urls.html However, the cross-reference is for other use cases and their troubleshooting - there’s no specific mention of the change required when seeking to hide the index page with the example .htaccess file.
Ideally, this use case of the (excellent) docs could be extended slightly to close this gap, along the following lines...
"In the above example, any HTTP request other than those for index.lc, images, assets, robots.txt, css and js is treated as a request for your index.lc file. If you use this method to remove the page, set the Index file variable in your application/config/config.lc file so that it is blank."
