Hello!

First post here, but I'm pretty sure this is the right forum

Anyway, I have an index.php file that requests an image based on a parameter in teh url. However, this looks really ugly to the user. How would I go about using a rewrite to change something like

http://domain.com/405/
into
http://domain.com/index.php?param=405

 
Have you even been far as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

Surely you're not referring to $_GET[param] are you? In PHP, anything past the question mark can be accessed using $_GET[]. What you would do is put all your code in the index.php file and then in the php code you would use $_GET[param] to get that parameter in the url.

http://domain.com/index.php?param=450&other=party

Anything past the ? is a parameter, with & serving as the delimiter between parameters. A $_GET parameter has a name and a value, for the example above we have a parameter with name param and value 450, and a parameter with name other and value party. To echo it in php, you would say:

echo $_GET[param];

Which would display "450".

Presumably you meant the other way around?

From long and varied experience, copypasted htaccess code is a poor substitute for actually knowing what you're doing. Which is why I use Wordpress

You could say the other way around, it depends on how you look at it. The system will take the /405/ and turn it into index.php?param=405.

Umm, you could use mod rewrite to do that, but what's the point?
The first way looks nicer.

He want's to do it the other way round..

So that when you visit /405/ it will show /index.php?param=405

RewriteRule ^/(\d+)/$ /index.php?param=$1 [PT]
RewriteRule ^/(\d+)$ /index.php?param=$1 [PT]

I guess I'm not explaining myself very well. THe user goes to the site http://domain.com/405/. As far as the user is concerned, they are at domain.com/405/. The system internally reads domain.com/405 as domain.com/index.php?param=405, which allows me to access the parameter for content on the page, while the user only sees domain.com/405/.

There has to be an easier way than using a whole new PHP framework. It's really a simple site...

No, it doesn't.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/(\d+)/$ /index.php?comic=$1 [PT]
RewriteRule ^/(\d+)$ /index.php?comic=$1 [PT]

is the full .htaccess file.

Working properly,
http://comic.jacobpariseau.com/0/ should be the same as
http://comic.jacobpariseau.com/index.php?comic=0

Ah, I looked into some of the syntax for this and I see a few things wrong. /d would would except there isn't a directory there, and although !/d might work in theory, I could just use numbers instead.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([0-9]+)/?$ /index.php?comic=$1
RewriteRule ^([0-9]+)$ /index.php?comic=$1
solved it for me. Thanks anyway!
