I'm conerting a site from html to php, the site has a huge news area, with over 500 articles.

I'm just wondering what the best approach for this. Ideally I would like to create a news article template with an include to the main content body, which is in html.

e.g. template----(include"060701.htm")

but I would really something that resembles this

referring link->

http://www.mydomain.com/news/template.php?dateofarticle


template file->

include("dateofarticle");


by doing it this way all I have to do is just ask users to save the articles in a special fromat and I do just the links.
