    Custom URL naming WITHOUT actually changes?

    Is there a way to change the display of a pages URL to something more intuitive for visitors?

    Currently, for OUR needs for file organization, our web files are named sort of like:

    Code:
    siteSection-sectionInfo.php
    ...which means it'll show in the browser as:

    Code:
    http://www.ourSite.com/siteSection-sectionInfo.php
    However I WANT it to read like this when a visitor goes onto that OR subsequent pages WITHOUT renaming the actual page names:

    Code:
    http://www.ourSite.com/sectionInfo
    ...is this possible, or no?
