Hi. I’m not sure if this is the correct category to post this but here goes.
I have a site at domain.com/folder and a subdomain that redirects to that folder. So sub.domain.com goes to domain.com/folder.
For my site, I have a splash page and once visitors click on the images, it opens a pop-up window with my site content. This pop-up IS my site, really. I use a pop-up because I need the page to be displayed at a specific size.
Here is where the problem lies.
I would think that most people would bookmark the pop-up page, which is index2.htm, instead of the splash page at domain.com/folder. If they bookmark index2.htm, the next time they visit my site, it won’t have that specific window size that is needed to view the site properly.
What I need is a way to cloak the URL of all files in domain.com/folder to display just that address without whatever.htm. Using DreamHost’s function in the control panel that lets you mirror another site’s content so that it cloaks the URL won’t work because people would open a pop-up page and then the URL won’t be cloaked anymore. Frames won’t work for the same reason.
Is there any way I can pull this off using .htaccess or something? All I want is all my files in my folder to be cloaked with the folder URL so instead of showing domain.com/folder/file.htm, it’ll always show domain.com/folder/ no matter what file in the folder is being viewed. Or at least I need index2.htm cloaked to be domain.com/folder/ since index2.htm is a frames page with all my site content, meaning none of the other individual site pages would be bookmarked.
Any help would be MUCH appreciated!
PS Either it be cloaked as domain.com/folder or sub.domain.com is fine. They’re essentially the same.
PPS I’ve emailed DreamHost support about this and they didn’t have a solution.
