need to hide .aw or extentions

Post by swiftinitpvtltd »

if you closely look at many enterprise apps or platforms they do not put any extentions like .aspx .asp or .aw on their platform end user URL's.
They just have
/myprofile/f/home/

/myprofile/f/jobs/

Sometimes if the extention is not well known end users do not want to visit the site. Need some way to hide .aw extention(easily...). There is a plugin suggested in the forums which kind of works but is very tricky to implement.

I played around a little using NGINX to do proxy forwarding which would hide everything that you don't want a user to see. Unfortunately my experience was inconsistent - sometimes the html would download as a text file rather than render. So I gave up to get on with my real work. I don't know if the issue was that NGINX got confused with the .aw extension.
