Trouble with Link Paths on exported site/.htaccess


When I go into my new website (photography website) Shared link below and change the Home page link to simply / so it reads the index, when I upload the page it shows the link as /home. I have tried deleting the link and then redoing the link.

Live link is here:

I am not sure if I quite understand the issue, could you help to clarify?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @seank, I was just leaving another message, I would try @samliew’s suggestion :slightly_smiling: If that does not work, could you share the contents of the server .htaccess file?

Removing the htcaccess worked. How else can we hide the /pagename.html extension via webflow on exporting? I know when hosting it works, but we really need to see how we can get the export hidden .html to work.

Hi @seank, well, for Webflow sites, this is automatic, but for external sites, this need to made in the .htaccess file.

Here is a good article on the subject:

.htaccess can be tricky, and sometimes just need a little trial and error until the setup works as intended.
