I am very new to yii and I am seriously considering using it for an upcoming project as I have heard alot of positive feedback on the framework. However, I am having a problem figuring out how to get dynamic urls to work. I would like it so that say I have a news controller. I would be able to send a url like news/this-is-a-title. However, I do not want to have to define this in the routes in the main config file. I want to be able to handle it in the controller and tell it whether or not that is a valid url. If anyone can tell me if this is even possible and provide me with an example that would be great.
