    So I’m pretty sure I found enough easy examples of how to change my url from to

    However I’m not sure what this all affects, and everything i’m reading out there doesn’t really say. If i do this mod rewrite to remove all the file exensions from my site’s URLs, how does that affect my linking within pages? will i need to change all my links to just be instead of or does it just change what the user sees, and not actually how the server is handling the request?

    in the same turn, what happens if you remove all the file extensions, and someone bookmarks your page. or shares your link. or writes it down to come back later. if they just type in will it take them to or will they get an error?
