I saw that htaccess thing on Text Link Ads website and figured it was just what I had been looking for. I'm not too hot on server side knowledge so this is invaluable info you are giving me. It is a rough hack and I'd much rather be able to do what you mentioned. Any hints on how to map to a directory? Is it like the mod-rewrite thing that Wordpress has to make the URL's seem static? annonnymous, thanks for your input.

Comment on Putting PHP Code into a Static HTML page by: annonymous http://www.designbydave.co.uk/2015/09/20/putting-php-code-into-a-static-html-page/#comment-1034 Wed, 20 Sep 2006 12:39:50 +0000 http://www.designbydave.co.uk/2015/09/20/putting-php-code-into-a-static-html-page/#comment-1034 This is really bad form. You are now making the server parse every single HTML or HTM page on the entire website. Sure, doing this achieves your goal, but it also doubled the server processing time on every single (formerly) static page, and made your entire website unscalable! You could handle your SEO issues by using server redirects and server remappings. The best thing to do is not include page extensions in your architecture when you begin creating your website. This can be accomplished simply by mapping to a directory instead of a file - this method of architecture is inherently more scalable and doesn't limit you to the technologies of today This is really bad form.

Those are the random links that appear just because someone has found something you say to be linkable. They are great but unpredictable.

It does seem a bit slap-dash. Doesn't the software development process have a stage known as testing? I think we might see the old Froogle feed submission reinstated before the day is out.

I'm getting nothing but 403 errors. Need to upload clients' Froogle Feeds, but only way to do that now is through Google Base, which doesn't work. Nice first impression, Google Base. Get your act together. Interesting strategy to kill Froogle Feed Merchant Center (I think that was what it was called) before Google Base actually works. Same probs at the US Google Base.
