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

Hi,
Use the attach code it will solve your problem



<!-- File: /app/views/posts/index.ctp -->

<h1>Blog posts</h1>
<table>
	<tr>
		<th>Id</th>
		<th>Title</th>
		<th>Created</th>
	</tr>

	<!-- Here is where we loop through our $posts array, printing out post info -->

	<?php foreach ($posts as $post): ?>
	<tr>
		<td><?php echo $post['Post']['title']; ?></td>
		<td>
			<?php echo $html->link($post['Post']['title'], 
array('controller' => 'posts', 'action' => 'view', $post['Post']['title'])); ?>
		</td>
		<td><?php echo $post['Post']['created']; ?></td>
	</tr>
	<?php endforeach; ?>

</table>

---------------------------

<?php
class PostsController extends AppController {

	var $name = 'Posts';

	function index() {
		 $this->set('posts', $this->Post->find('all'));
	}

	function view($id = null) {
		$this->Post->title = $title;
		$this->set('post', $this->Post->read());
	}
}
?>
