Pretty URL with a custom variable.
Pretty URL's are working fine on all the site for me, except for one place I want to add a custom variable to the URL (for links to a page that grabs data with a $_GET)
This is on a single page. The single page loads find with a pretty url as long as I don't have an additional variables. It loads fine (with no data grab) as mysite.com/bike/. 147 is the cID for the page.
For now I have links going to mysite.com/cID=147&bikeID=10
While this works, I rather a clean link.
something like mysite.com/bike/10/ works
something like mysite.com/bike/aggressor-2.0/ would be awesome.
to get the bike name, it would be a query like "SELECT model FROM bikes WHERE bikeID=$_GET[bikeID]" (I know that doesn't work exactly, but just example incase anyone needs query parameters for example).
So if anyone can explain to me what I need to script out to make mysite.com/bike/10/ that would be awesome. A break down of the code so I understand it better even more awesome.
If someone can do the same for mysite.com/bike/aggressor-2.0/ would leave me speechless.
If you only have say 20 or you want something pretty easy, let me know I've writtenhttp://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/url-director/...
and if you'll give it an honest effort to try to get my add-on to work in your particular use case and if it does you'll give it a great review then I will give you a copy in advance.
Thanks and let me know.
This worked perfectly. I think I actually read that probably 50 times, but it was a week or two ago, and picked up a lot better understanding of c5 since then, so was able to get it to work this time.
