The problem is the extensionless urls. If I have a static file @ example.com/somefile.html and a matching url with wordpress(without extensions) and I direct a browser to example.com/somefile wordpress is activated. If on the other hand I navigate to example.com/somefile.html wordpress is never activated and my static file is served.
I want all visitors to see the .html version and, unfortunately, wordpress doesn't redirect extensionless to .html version automatically unless other url changes are also made.
