Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
On past sites I have created, I have used numeric ids in urls and rewritten them with mod rewrite eg www.somesite.com/somepage.php?someid=4 would become www.somesite.com/somepage/4.html
This time I wanted to get rid of the numbers and I am not sure of the best way to do this.
I think I would like to use text ids eg www.somesite.com/somepage.php?someid=page_name and rewrite that. But would this make database access much slower?
Or is a rewritemap a better way?
I wondered if anyone had any experience of these sort of issues and could offer some advice.
