Assuming you've written your rewrite rule correctly, you would access the variable exactly as if you were still using the?category=Computer querystring, so $_GET['category'] would = Computer.

You can do a print_r($_GET) on your page to see exactly what GET variables are coming in.

Thanks for reply.

My .htaccess code is -
------------------------------
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^bookinfo/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/?$ /bookinfo.php?$1=$2 [L]
RewriteRule ^books/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/?$ /books.php?$1=$2 [L]
------------------------------

is it ok.

Current dynamic url is -----
[mysite.com...] networking
[mysite.com...]

And i wrote this url to get this url----
[mysite.com...] networking/
[mysite.com...]

So according to this is my .htaccess code is ok?
