Lately I added PHP to my site to make it better and stuff, and I had to make the extensions .php. Anyways, Google only has the .html pages in their search.
http://www.google.com/search?q=Thelastchild&hl=en&lr=&safe=off&start=0&sa=N&filter=0

Is there anyway I can get it to crawl my php pages, and have it remove the html pages already in the archive?

Thanks.

EVEN MORE PROBLEMS! I can't edit my post here, and it doesn't show new posts for threads and stuff. Database errror or something?

I don't know about the google stuff, but perhaps you could just set up a custom 404 page that redirects to your home page for a little bit...until google re-indexes your site, which it will eventually do on its own.

Thanks for pointing this out. I wouldn't have caught it until much later otherwise, as I don't edit posts that much.

I fixed the borked table and am checking the others. Everything should be as good as new soon.

I don't think it was a server thing, I just got a database is down message everytime I tried to edit. Works fine now though.

What do you think the database runs on? Some kind of magic? ;)

The database is maintained by a mysql server, and it had a corrupted table.

I didn't mean that, I just couldn't word it properly. I meant I think it was the same thign as the post problem, not a different thing.

Perhaps you could make a robots.txt file where you tell spiders what page to visit and what not ;)

Well, I already deleted the HTML files, so I don't think its neccesary to tell the bots to not go to html pages. :)
