Can anyone suggest the easiest solution to create virtual
directories like you can on MySpace and then rewrite them to a
I'd image you would have to strip the URL and query a
database with the keyword from the URL. The database query, etc I
can handle. But how can you get that keyword easily out of the URL.
For example www.mysite.com/KEYWORD
cgi.script_name? but theres more to it then that...
That is, of course, if you're running on an apache server and
have the willingness/time to learn another interesting feature of
Apache. I've been using this with Coldfusion, PHP, and many
different pre-built CMS systems. If you're running IIS I know there
is a non-free alternative, but I'd search for "IIS mod_rewrite" if
that's the case.
If you are running Apache and want to give it a try just
search for "mod_rewrite howto" or something of the like.
