URLs without extensions
by Steve Testone on August 28th, 2009

I'm working on a really cool update for next week, but for now here is a small, yet very useful one. You are now able to link to your pages without needing to add the ".htm" extension to the end of the url. Several people have requestion this feature for marketing campaigns and things like that so hopefully it will be a big help.

In case you are still confused about what exactly this means, or why you would use it, here is a small example:

Let's say you were sending out an email promotion or going to a conference. You wanted a way to track anybody that comes to your website that gets a handout at the conference. One way to do this would be to create a special page on your website just for people who get the brochure. You could simply title this page "brochure". So the url for this page could now look something like "http://mywebsite.com/brochure", as opposed to "http://mywebsite.com/brochure.htm".

Basically it just makes the url prettier and easier to remember.

This may seem minor to some, but it will be a BIG help for us. Thanks!

Is this already implemented? I can't find it.

There really isn't anything you need to find, just try typing in the url to one of your web pages and leave off the ".htm" at the end to see it in action.
