It sounds to me like that is an internal-to-wordpress thing, so you
may be better off removing any clever nginx config and just configure
wordpress to create the links that you want it to create.

(I do not know if it possible to configure wordpress like that.)

When someone clicks on catagory, they are following a link in whatever
html was returned from their previous request. If that link has a trailing
slash, they'll ask for the trailing slash.

If the content on the catagory page contains links like "post1.html",
then you will need the trailing slash -- or you will need to change
the content to be of the form "catagory/post1.html". That should all be
configurable within wordpress, if anywhere.

Good luck with it,
