I’m just getting back into web design after a few years and i noticed that page extensions are non existent now.
http://css-tricks.com/downloads/ instead of something like http://css-tricks.com/downloads.php
I’m not sure how this works, what is going on here? is there some vids or articles I can check out?
Since a lot of sites are generated dynamically now, it’s a lot easier to have the system set up folders automatically and place an index.php or index.html inside that folder.
You can also remove extensions via .htaccess:
Why do people do it? It looks a hell of a lot cleaner to me. Which would you rather see in the url:
It looks a lot cleaner without the index.php beside it, and it means it’s one less thing for users to remember.
Thank you I will look into it!
One thing to note is that I’ve found certain hosting providers give certain limits to what you can do with htaccess. On my godaddy hosted site, nothing I did to the htaccess stuck, but on my MT hosted account it works just fine.
