  • Mark Steenbakkers: why do you need the .shtml file extension? If you want to make you website user friendly, I would suggest that you remove the file extension in an url.

    Here are both options:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^(.*)\.shtml$ $1.html [nc] (rewrite .html to .shtml)
    RewriteRule ^([^\.]+)$ $1.shtml [NC,L] (remove the file extension)
  • PromozSEO: I agree with . You can completely remove the extension part from all your URLs with the .htaccess file.

    <b>RewriteEngine On</b>
    <b>RewriteRule ^([^/.]+)$ $1.shtml [L]</b>

    Redirect with .htaccess

    Redirect 301 /test.html 
  • Datafeedware: use this one ;RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^([^/.]+)$ $1.shtml [L]
