Hi

I am developing a members database system.

I want people to be able to go to their page e.g.

www.domain.com/matthew or www.domain.com/james - but I don't want to create each individual subdirectory - rather have some method whereby for example a 404 page would check and re-direct to a script which would be something like page.php?name=matthew if the request was to www.domain.com/matthew

Any ideas?

Don't worry - I've sorted it..

.htaccess in the root:
ErrorDocument 404 "/redirect.php"

... then redirect.php:
$subdir = substr($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],1);

($subdir will contain a string of the sub-directory)

Thanks anyway

Matt
