Help with friendly URLs...
Hi Everyone ... I have been beating my head against this for a long time. I have a photo gallery made from a tutorial found here on Sitepoint. Right now the gallery works by uploading the pictures, then giving it a 'file id' and 'pic-id' at the same time. Later pulling an image from database where pic-id and file-id comes equal. Here is a link http://www.rajeevthomas.com/viewgall...?cid=2&pid=424.
How can I replace the cid, pid,? , , etc, and replace it with www.rajeevthomas.com/simple-expressions/light every time I click on an image , can these numbers and letters replaced by my image category name and image caption ( in this case it is simple-expressions/light )
To better explain what I am trying to achieve here can be seen on this website, each time you click on the arrow to get the next image, a clean url comes up with the image caption (image name) at the end... http://www.josephkaynephoto.com/photo/shale-pastels/
Someone suggested Appache Rewrite Mode... but does that really help in my situation? My understanding is that Appache Mode helps you to share links in a neat fashion on blogs and emails but when a person clicks on the link, it will take the person to the original link with numbers and ids ... is this correct?
Thank for helping me...
