PHP Redirects QueryString to Page

Posted on 2013-06-12
Last Modified: 2013-07-21
I would like to improve SEO results for a site that is currently being fed by a database and as such has pages with things like gallery/index.php?id=55 with a title of Golden Image

How do I convert a dynamic ID driven page to go from (title: Golden Image)

I have to assume this can be done, but I need a starting point.  Ideas?

You will need to manage your code which will load page by title not by id if the page have unique title or seo friendly link then your can do it. Can you post your table structure??

There is an extension for IIS you can read about here:, but I can't help you since I use Apache :)

Table structure is:
ID     TITLE                 CATEGORY  MOREINFO

55     Golden Image   Paintings    Lots of details about this product

so instead of gallery/?id=55, I want gallery/paintings/golden-image/
