I have got a url that currently looks like /itemDetail/1
ItemDetail being the models name, ideal what I’d like to do is make it something a bit cleaner like: /item/location/title
I have read the docs on url rewriting, but I was still unsure how to do this, could anyone offer some guidance to a newbie please?
You probably should read more about how a route is assembled.
Edit: If still in doubt, tell us more about the particular url.
Well I thought that by using the rules inside the urlManager would allow me to change the url pattern.
What I tried was:
'item/' => 'itemDetail/View'
I thought that this would at least be a start in that www.example.com/item/2 would be re-written to www.example.com/itemDetail/2 internally and displayed.
This is sadly wrong, where am going wrong?
Thanks for your help so far
Read more here about URL management.
Next: also show your url manager config and details about usage and what problem you encounter.
Edit: and don’t forget to search the forum, there’s plenty of url management examples.
You seem to be ignoring the ‘id’ parameter.
Thanks for your help Tommy
This is how I did it in case anyone else finds this helpfull
'items/<id:\d+>' => 'ItemDetail/View',
