I've replaced a well established static site, http://pollenceramics.com
with a rails based site. Rails seems rather ideal for adding various
dynamic facilities like a shopping carts etc. During development, I
ignored that rails does not use .html extensions. As the site has been
around for some time and contains lots of nice images which has caused
other sites including Google to point to it. Its page rank on Google
is quite good because over time it has what Google calls 'inbound
links'. These are links on other sites that point to this site.
Except for inbound links that point at http://pollenceramics.com these
inbound links have all been broken. The question is how do I put
the .html back on the sub-pages?
For instance, the old site had a page pollenceramics.com/artist.html.
The rails version is now pollenceramics.com/artist which is a
completely loss to links that point at pollenceramics.com/
I hope I've been clear in explaining the problem. A session of RTFM
has left me in a state of total confusion. Help would be appreciated.
