You can easily add the .php extension to any .htm(l) page that you have with no worries as long as you have PHP installed and configured properly.
The only "problem" is that page load will be SLIGHTLY slower since PHP will search all .php pages for PHP code to evaluate. Upon finding none, it will simply return the HTML to the requester. But note that this is a tiny bit longer than your web server just serving the page without passing it through PHP. Naming all files "index.XXX" will be a good idea. Though realize that some people might link directly to the file itself (which can sometimes become visible with different browsers and different activities). But none-the-less, it will work for most users if they do decide to bookmark the folder. -M -----Original Message----- From: David Blomstrom [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Thursday, June 19, 2003 10:14 PM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: [PHP-DB] Renaming all pages to .php I'd like to get some feedback from this forum. Do you agree that a page without php functions or server side includes can be put online with either a .htm or .php function? If I never add a php function to a page with a .php extension, could that cause some kind of problems? Also, I'm thinking of naming all my pages "index" and sticking them inside folders. That way, visitors can reach a page by typing in www.geobop.com/birds/ , whether the full URL is www.geobop.com/birds/index.htm or www.geobop.com/birds/index.php Is this a good plan, or do you see any problems?
