PHP Question

Remove php extension from subfolder url

I am trying to add some other page for my project. But i have one question about php extension.

So i am using htaccess for some url like following htaccess:

Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /(.*)index\.php($|\ |\?)
RewriteRule ^ /%1 [R=301,L]

RewriteRule ^friends/([\w-]+)/?$ /friends.php?username=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^followers/([\w-]+)/?$ /followers.php?username=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^status/([\w-]+)/?$ /status.php?msgID=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^following/([\w-]+)/?$ /following.php?username=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^followers/([\w-]+)/?$ /followers.php?username=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^(.*/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)|([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+))$ /profile.php?username=$1 [L,QSA]


Now, i have created photos.php from the details folder and the link is :

<a href="http://www.name.com/details/photos.php">Go Photos</a>


When i click the Go Photos link i want to remove that url php extension like

http://www.name.com/details/photos


I have still tryed some answer from stackOverflow

Answer

You need additional rules for removing .php extension.

Use these rules:

Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} \s/+(.+?)\.php[\s?] [NC]
RewriteRule ^ /%1 [R=302,NE,L]

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} /index\.php [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)index\.php$ /$1 [L,R=302,NC,NE]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f
RewriteRule ^ - [L]

RewriteRule ^status/([\w-]+)/?$ status.php?msgID=$1 [L,QSA]

RewriteRule ^(following|followers|friends)/([\w-]+)/?$ $1.php?username=$2 [L,QSA]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.php -f
RewriteRule ^(.+?)/?$ $1.php [L]

RewriteRule (?:^|/)([\w-]+)/?$ profile.php?username=$1 [L,QSA]
