Hi this is my first post, mainly because my countless google searches have failed miserably.
So all my site urls end in the file name that there on.
But i see sites that have there sites end in just the name of the site, as if its referring to just the folder.
here is one example of a real site that does this.
So my question is: How can this be done, and what is this technique called because it seems like it should be simple but i cant figure it out for the life of me.
It’s because the ACTUAL url is:
But the "index.html" is the default, so it isn’t shown in the url.
What TheDoc mentions may be correct (depending on the situation) but I believe you are wanting to research "url rewriting". You might want to start your research here: http://www.yourhtmlsource.com/sitemanag … iting.html or here: http://www.roscripts.com/Pretty_URLs_-_ … g-168.html.
I’d suggest looking up the terms "url rewriting" and "apache mod_rewrite". You may be able to do some basic url rewriting though an apache .htaccess file too. A lot of CMS software has built in url rewriting.
Ben is very right. I should’ve gone a little deeper.
Much Thanks! Super Helpful … I guess i just did know the right terms to search for.
