Changing Extentions

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I have a site that started with 5 pages and is now over 50.  It contains a
side bar that I must update monthly.  Needless to say, I need a better way
(obviously not frames!) so am going to use php functions.  However, all may
page extensions will change from .html to .php.  Will this have any effect
on my search engine placement/rankings?

BTW, an alternative would be to use SSI - dead easy.

SSI normally triggers the parsing on the server with an .shtml extension but
you can, if you have .htaccess facilities, change  the settings so that html
extension files are also server parsed. That would save you making changes
to the extensions.

If you feel that any of the above is incorrect,
inappropriate or offensive in any way,
please ignore it and accept my apologies.

And you can do exactly the same thing with PHP.

You can keep the .html extension by adding the following to your
.htacess file:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .html

Re: Changing Extentions

I was more comfortable changing the extensions to php so that is what I did.
When I look at the page, I can see the title fine.  However, I used a spider
to check for broken links and it came back labeling everypage as "Untitled
Document."  Is there a different code I need to use for the title tag, or
all meta tags for that case (even though they don't mean as much now)
differently for a php page?
