SharePoint Online 2013 - Publishing sub site - can not view HTM or HTML web pages in Browser


  • When I try to view an uploaded HTML (or HTM) web page in my test publishing site, it will not display. When I click on it, it downloads to my desktop instead of displaying.

    I have tried renaming it to an ASPX, but still downloads instead of displaying. Plus I need to keep the HTML (or HTM) type file and not change it to ASPX.

    Is there a way to display the HTML (or HTM) file and avoid changing to ASPX?

  • SharePoint online does not support html files from library to be rendered in browser, due to permissive file extensions. Other than renaming to aspx there is no other alternative.
