Converting HTML website to Joomla

Post by roshanwebexpert » Wed Mar 31, 2021 9:31 am

hello,

I am working for a client who has a requirement to convert his HTML website in Joomla. Now his condition is to keep the exact extension URL when his website will live with Joomla CMS. Will it be possible to have same URL structure if we convert from HTML to Joomla. Also, he wants to do it with his new SSL layer. I would appreciate if someone can guide me in this.

Thanks

It depends. If you could provide more information about how your URL is structured, other users could provide input.

Are you referring to SSL certificate? If so, it is fully supported in Joomla! In addition, your hosting environment must support SSL certificates.

Thanks a lot and I think it can help me a lot. Basically, website URLs have extension with .html

Also, by using SSL, yes, I meant SSL certificate.

Thank you once again for your assistance.

The Global Configuration "Add Suffix to URL" (available in the section/group "SEO Settings") would help you in achieving this.

Review of the document https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Global_configuration would be of help.

The url is defined by the menu structure in Joomla
