Is there an easy way to do this in web hosting hub settings? If not, I'm using Adobe Contribute CS5 on my Mac.

Background info: I just transferred my hosting from Yahoo and pages like this would load without the ".htm" at the end of the address:
http://freshieandzero.com/simpletrufflelariat.htm
It does not appear to be working since switching to webhosting hub.

Thank you!

Thank you for your question freshiebeth!

Unfortunately, there is no option for turning on "Friendly" URLs in the control panel. This is something that will need to be custom coded in the .htaccess. You can try making folders with the name of the page and putting the page in the folder. You can rename it to index.htm and the folder name will show in the URL without the file name. Sorry for this.

Best Regards,
