change php html

Hi,

I have created a php template (index.php)to avoid using DW templates as I dont like the greyed out areas. The template works with just the html code inside them.

My issue is that the name of the file has to have php eg index.php and I want the page names to have html extension.

How can I change the extension to html so php works in it.

 
<body>

<div id="wrapper">

<?php include("includes/header.php"); ?>

<?php include("includes/nav.php"); ?>

<div id="content">


<h5>Heading5</h5>

<h3>Paragraph Element</h3>

<p>

Quisque pellentesque sodales aliquam. Morbi mollis neque eget arcu egestas non ultrices neque volutpat. Nam at nunc lectus, id vulputate purus. In et turpis ac mauris viverra iaculis. Cras sed elit a purus ultrices iaculis eget sit amet dolor. Praesent ac libero dolor, id viverra libero. Mauris aliquam nibh vitae eros sodales fermentum. Fusce cursus est varius ante vehicula eget ultrices felis eleifend. Nunc pharetra rutrum nibh et lobortis. Morbi vitae venenatis velit.

</p>





</div> <!-- end #content -->

<?php include('includes/sidebar.php'); ?>
<?php include('includes/footer.php'); ?>



		</div> <!-- End #wrapper -->   </body>

Why not?

.htaccess is not required by default - you use it to do further configuration on your site.

Add this to your .htaccess

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .html

Here is a the basic .htaccess you need to solve this - this will first check to see if the html file exists and will then rewrite the url to .php so you can support both

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
# if all you want to do is change the index file then you can stop after the following line
RewriteRule index\.html$ index.php [L,NC,QSA]
# Condition that .html file must not exist 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
# change any request for a .html file to its php equivalent and append the query
# parameters (if any)
RewriteRule (.*)\.html$ $1.php [L,NC,QSA]

I'm with GaryC123.  Just parse the HTML documents through the PHP machine.  Here is my typical .htaccess

ErrorDocument 404 /404handler.php
AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .html .htm .php

In the root of your site (usually). If it is not there - create it.
