    How do I go about doing these?

    I'm thinking of redoing the reviews on my website using mySQL and PHP. However, I am not sure how to. I'm thinking something like this eg. http://www.moviem.com/review.php?mid=1

    I'm also eyeing a similarity with the easter egg "catalogue" at dvdeastereggs.com with an index for the alphabet and the corresponding title.

    How do I go about doing these?

    Thanks Aspen. Redemption: It was just an example, sorry.

    How do I use query strings? Is it better or not as good as your methods?

    Is it possible to have paragraphings in columns of a table? I tried (honestly) using <p> to create paragraphs for the movie reviews. It worked out fine but is there a better way?

    A query string is a string tacked onto a url following a question mark.

    Code:
    http://www.sitepointforums.com/newreply.php?s=&action=newreply&threadid=34437
    The red above is the query string.

    A query string is the easiest and default way to pass variables to a script.

    In my article I outline other better ways to pass variables. These ways make it easier for search engines to spider your entire site.
