Hi There

I have the following url

http://www.domain.com/products/index.php?category_id=$cat
and
http://www.domain.com/products/index.php?product_id=$prod

but for seo purposes would like these pages to be accessed by using the following url

http://www.domain.com/products/category_name
and
http://www.domain.com/products/category_name/product_name

I would like to have spaces replaced with hashes and for the product page would like to have the product name as well as the category name showing (is there a way to do a db query in order to get the category name)

Thanks in Advance

not with isapi rewrite, it can redirect or replace the url but not run queries, you would need to build a cf page to manage your categories and create the isapi ini when categories are added/updated/deleted ans specify the rules to apply

i think it's a bit more complicated than what a tutorial would be able to cover, what i suggested above is not easy
