Blog won't load without .php in the link

All of my domain [.com] and subdomain [.com/] pages load and redirect to .php extensions. However my blog address [http://www.amajorc.com/blog] will not load unless it is entered or pasted exactly as http://www.amajorc.com/blog.php

I would like this /blog page to load similar to the rest. Any suggestions? I have made a http://blog.amajorc.com redirect that seems to work and I prefer over the www.amajorc.com/blog.php. Why is the blog subdomain the only one the insists on blog.php?

Thank you - Toby

Hello,

You can enter the blog page without the .php if you would like, but it will resolve in the browser with the .php added; that is just the way it is set up.

The posts themselves do not need the .php added and will resolve without the .php in the browser window.

Possibly this is something that will change in the future, I will let our team know that it has been requested as a feature. Thanks for letting us know what you are interested in seeing.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

When I enter: www.amajorc.com/blog or: http://www.amajorc.com/blog it is redirected to 404 Not Found and then to: http://www.yola.com/

Gosh... I am really sorry about this. Actually, the blog page is the only page that actually requires the .php to be added to the end; and this is only the case if the site has a blog on it. I have just spoken with an engineer and unfortunately this is the way it has to be right now, you will need to add the .php to the end of any links you create to your blog page.

OK, I wanted to make sure I was not loopy.

For anyone else's information creating a redirect such as blog.url.com (mine is blog.amajorc.com) works well and is easier to write and for people to remember, it automatically routes to http://www.amajorc.com/blog.php, but is more neat.

Thanks, Toby

How do you create a redirect?

(And I would also like to throw my vote in for the engineers to "fix" it so that the php isn't needed in the address.)

We do not support 301 redirects so I'm afraid I'm not sure what specifically Toby was referring to above. As this thread is 3 years old, I'm not sure he'll be able to assist.
