We have a website that is based on the e107 platform. Normally, the pages that we create are stored in the database and are referenced like: http://www.mysite.org/page.php?123 where 123 is the page number in the list of pages.

We are looking to display several dozen streaming educational videos that are hosted on youtube. We can accomplish this succesfully by creating a page for each video that needs to be posted, but this is time-consuming and cumbersome. So, I wrote some simple java script that takes 2 parameters (the unique Youtube ID for the video and the video format wide/narrow) and builds the embed code for the video. The code works perfectly in an individual page. The idea is that if I can pass the parameters in the URL, I can use one page for diplaying dozens of videos by modifying just the link as I create it.

So, I am trying to figure out how I can pass those 2 parameters to the page.php so that the page dynmically displays the desired youtube video based on the parameters in the URL.

Any help is appreciated.
