@predragleka Thank you so much for your prompt reply. I did indeed figure out a simple and quick solution.
Go to file: sitecake/2.3.6/src/Sitecake/draft.php and change the following line: 155 to...._
$node->setAttribute('href', $entryPointPath . '?scpage=' . ltrim($href, './').".php");
However because I added .php, when you click a link to go back to a home page, and if the url is '/' then you must explicitly add index to your .htaccess like:
RewriteRule ^index$ index.php [L,NC]
Also keep in mind if your .htaccess contains [NC] it means no caps, so if your file is camel-case the browser will look for no caps, and wont find it. So best practice here, and in general is keep your .htaccess routes that will contain a page that will be edited, all lower cased.
Works like a charm.
