View Full Version : how does "page.php/11/" work?

01-26-2004, 05:32 PM
I came upon this page php website and this url:
is sort of like a template. And if you add a number to the end like:
you'll see valid product info.

I would've guessed to make a page, say bundles.php and to display valid info, it would be bundles.php?id=14
So how does this "bundles.php/14/" work? with the slashes (and without a variable like "?id="). Thanks.

i figured it out.

function strip_ID($str)
$str = str_replace("/", "", $str);
return $str;

echo strip_ID($_SERVER["PATH_INFO"]); # a url HTTP://domain/dir/dir/filename/666/ returns /666/ so you have to strip the / out and replace it with nothing

you can see the result at http://devleworm.com/window/phpinfo/64654654645654/

Plenty of tutorials for mod_rewrite too, which is more effective I think
