    Hi, I am trying to get WordPress to use '.html' on the end of links to Pages, but it doesn't seem to work.

    I have set the permalink custom option to /%category%/%postname%.html but it will only recognise it when I put /%category%/%postname%/ in the browser.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    I'm pretty sure WP permalinks can only end with '/'

    "I'm pretty sure WP permalinks can only end with '/'"

    It's recommended one end their custom permalinks that way, especially since it can cause problems with post pagination as well as feed and trackback links to a post. But if one is willing to put up with that...

    r2d2_r2d2, if you change it to:


    Does that work? If so, then see if this plugin solves any problems using %category%:


    Beyond that, I'm out of suggestions.
