Welcome to WebmasterWorld, invisible777.

You should be able to parse out the pieces you need from one of PHP's $_SERVER [php.net]superglobal variables.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I have this piece of code:

$keys = explode("-",str_replace(array("http://",".php"),"",$_SERVER['SCRIPT_URI']));
echo $keys[0]."<br>".$keys[1];?>

which requires the page exist... whereas i just need something that allows the user to type in www.mydomain.com/absolutelyanythinghere and then i suppose to be redirected to an index.php where 'absolutelyanythinghere' can be echoed onto the page...

you can pass that string to index.php as parameter

redirect www.example.net/index.php?invalidpage=absolutelyanythinghere

and then in index.php
use get to get paremeter

$string = $_GET['invalidpage'];

then display value of the variable
echo $string;

sorry im not following... how does that redirect occur if the original invalid page does not exist?

You need to add the following code to your .htaccess file.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)$ /index.php?invalidpage=$1 [L]

And your index.php will be

print $_GET['invalidpage'];
