  • Friendly url using php and htaccess
    url s Intro to htaccess The htaccess file is a very powerful configuration file and should be used wisely as it can affect everything and anything about your website First of all check that you are able to create and use a htaccess file on your site On the root top level of your site you should have this file and if not you should be able to create a file in notepad and call it htaccess This in itself can be tricky you need to make sure the file is called htaccess and not htaccess txt or whatever You can edit this file in Dreamweaver or your editor though if you like by right clicking it and choosing Open with Dreamweaver Configuring htaccess for friendly url s You need to put the following lines into your htaccess file RewriteEngine On RewriteRule page page page php id 1 This basically tells your website that any request for your page should be re written Doing this will mean that your addresses will become further simplified to the following www mysite com page 3 That is great isn t it Or is it What happens if you have a conference or a product to promote this address is still not friendly enough for your marketing campaign or to add more words into your search engine ranking so how could you further improve this address Here is one approach that you could use but it involves a fairly serious change to your site so think carefully before doing this Here comes the science moving from id number identifiers to letters This is the tricky bit Your site so far has been using id numbers to identify its pages The method covered in this article is going to change all that to use words to identify a record in the database Firstly create a new field in the database called something like page address identifier and set this to allow characters Each record in your database will then need some unique words to identify each record So for example page php id 3 was id 3 in the database so I ll add my new field to the database and set its value to be something like contact us This identifier should use underscores instead of spaces and should ideally use lowercase characters a z and or 0 9 In the admin section of your site also it may be a good idea to validate this field and check for duplicates to make sure your page address identifier s are in the correct format and are unique You will also need to alter your SQL statement on page php to select a record from the page address identifier field of your database and not the old id field Once this is done it now means that www mysite com page page php id 3 can now be referenced as page address identifier www mysite com page page php id contact us Not very friendly
