Help regarding url location name

#1 Post by Woody165 » 2013-10-30 10:26

Hi all,

I've just started using filezilla (3.7.3) to upload pages to a site i'm working on and need a pointer or two:

I have uploaded html files and they work fine, but the url is e.g. http://www.example.com/excitingcontent.html. Is there a way i can change the url so that it doesn't include '.html'? Or would I have to do this via a CMS or some other way?

Many thanks

You cannot change the URL itself because it is the result of the servers directory structure.

1. At the location of the website files, create a new subdirectory excitingcontent.
2. move excitingcontent.html (and its associated files, if any) into the new subdirectory.
3. Rename excitingcontent.html into index.html.
4. Resulting URL would be http://www.example.com/excitingcontent/ (the final slash can be omitted).
