This is a question that follows up on a discussion about “cruft-less” links from an earlier thread :
I am in the process of migrating an iWeb website to a RapidWeaver website.
To minimize the need for 301 Redirects I want to make sure I understand URL naming conventions.
Assume my iWeb site has a URL name of xyzcustomcabinets.com/bungalow_cabinets.html
To emulate this URL in RapidWeaver I give it a folder name of “bungalow_cabinets”.
When it publishes it shows up with the URL name of xyzcustomcabinets.com/bungalow_cabinets/
cabinets.html has been replaced with cabinets/
Will replacing .html with a simple forward slash ( / ) have any affect on previously bookmarked URLs? The syntax is different but will this have any affect on the need for 301 Redirects?
