My home page for my URL www.visitnakhonsawan.com has the URL http://visitnakhonsawan.com/index.htm Why the index ext? All other pages have an /index_files/ ext. Why is this?

To add further information, I am not getting any error messages, It has been an issue since I launched my site (I am developing it very slowly) and I am using microsoft publisher software to build and publish the site.

Hello garymmx,

The URLs are showing the structure that was given to them by the creating program. From viewing your source code, it appears to have been a Microsoft product of some sort.

The /index.htm appearance is due to the way the Home button link is coded.

The /index_files portion of the URL is due to all files except the index.htm file beign stored in a folder of that name. The links to other files have to look in the index_files folder, so that is part of the URL.

Best Regards,
Scott M
