Hi all,

I am using cakephp and I am using a view to display records ... my code is very similar to this one:

http://book.cakephp.org/view/1536/Creating-Post-Views

My URL would be like: /view/1   where 1 is the id of the record to show.

My question is: How can I have the title field (got example) to show in the url insyead of the id?

Thanks
