Hi, does anyone know if there is a way to hide the .php at the end on the page URLs? I know you can get to the page without typing in ".php" at the end, but then the ".php" appears. Is there a way it can just have the page name and not ".php" after the page name?

Hi Nathan,

If your site has a blog page then in reality you would be able to link to your pages without including the .php at the end. This is because the blog URLs are built to not use this, and the URL structure is site wide. Basically, the ability to leave the .php off the end of page names is a side effect of how something was implemented.

However, it is best to avoid this and to continue to link to your pages including the .php at the end in case things change in the future and for SEO purposes as the internal links of your site will use the .php format, and others will generally link to your site using the .php format.

Hi, sorry for the delayed very response! Anyways, why do we have to have .php at the end? Like, on getsatisfaction.com they don't have any page extension, they just have, for example, the about page, http://www.getsatisfaction.com/about/ I want this for my site, instead of the pags saying "http://www.mywebsite.com/page.php Do you think Yola will ever come out with a feature like this? I don't like the.php at the end.
