Expanding Content without Breaking My Code?!
My website is about finished, but this past weekend something occurred to me that I fear will break all of the code I have written!! :eek:
The majority of my website revolves around Articles, and right now I have this simple structure...
Currently, all of my Articles are accessed from this URL...
The problem is that as more and more Articles are added, there will be a need to break things up into sections, just like a newspaper (e.g. Current Events, World, Local, Sports, Money, Entertainment, etc.)
Unfortunately, all of the files in my "articles" directory contain code like this...
$_SESSION['articleReturnPath'] = "/articles/$slug";
<li><a href="#here">Make a Comment</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo "/articles/join-article-thread/$slug"; ?>">Subscribe to Thread</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo "/articles/rate-this-article/$slug"; ?>">Rate this Article</a></li>
$_SESSION['returnToPage'] = "/articles/edit-comment/$slug/$user/$commentID";
So, since all of my scripts which support Articles revolve around this paradigm, I fear I am screwed if I add new sections or sub-divide things...
What would I need to do if I wanted to switch from URL's like this....
To something like either this...
