Ok once again I'm having an issue with a plugin controller. It was working once upon a time but stopped sometime in the past year.

I have stripped the plugin down to bare, so there is no reason it shouldn't be working.

File Structure:



    namespace Craft;

    class WebMentionReceiver_EndpointController extends BaseController  {
                protected $allowAnonymous = array("actionReceive");

                public function actionReceive()  {

So the plugin name is WebMentionReceiver, the controller is Endpoint and the action is Receive. So index.php?p=actions/webmentionreceiver/endpoint/receive should be the URL. But it 404s.

Any ideas? It is driving me mad!

    Does camel casing the plugin name do anything so: 'webMentionReceiver' ? Sep 24, 2015 at 20:16
  • Yes! That has worked. Thanks so much. Didn't realise the URL would be case sensitive. Sep 24, 2015 at 20:33
  • @AlecRitson Could you post camel casing the URL as an answer please? Then I can choose it :) Sep 24, 2015 at 21:00
  • No worries! Glad it helped, tried to give a bit more info in the answer :) Sep 24, 2015 at 21:08

1 Answer 1


When your plugin has a camel cased name you need to make sure you camel case your references to it, such as when you try and visit an action url.

I assume this is due to when craft tries to resolve the url it sees pluginname and pluginName as two different things, much like php variables.

I would also assume this is due to the way Craft autoloads classes.

So using webMentionReciever would resolve since it would be a "exact" match to your plugin name.

This isn't limited to just plugin names, the same goes for any service, controller etc references too.
