gr i see other sites doing it without redirection. the url is the same, but a 404 page comes up when i try to do a .html or .php on their site. this would mean it's a RewriteRule i think.
either way i've been rattling my brain but it's hard to make it work without cutting off the page from being viewed all together.
that's what i have now and it makes the page completely unreachable, even when .html is not typed in. i assume the line to make the page 404 if the user types in .html should be on top, since the second line puts in the .html when they don't type it in. i'm really not sure, perhaps it should go underneath. any input dan?
RewriteRule ^([a-z]+)\.html$ /404 [L]
RewriteRule ^([a-z]+)$ /$1.html [L]
grah if anyone has any ideas let me know.
