hide .html extension

When published the site editor adds .html page extensions to all pages other than the home page. It would be great to automatically rewrite the URLs to hide these.

This creates SEO benefits and makes the URLs easier to communicate to users.

        Hello Louisa,

        You can setup a redirect directly on your dashboard. Click on the settings icon for the site in question, then choose the redirect tab.

        Be sure to publish after setting up the 301 redirects.

        Please let us know if there is anything else we can help with.

        Hello,

        We don't have a way to remove the .html yet from the site, but there is a workaround that you can use for specific pages in your site.

        In settings on your dashboard, you can set up 301 redirects. So if you have a specific page in your site you want to send users to, you can set up a redirect so that www.mysite.com/about will lead to www.mysite.com/about.html
